The Problem with Excessive Noise

Noise is inevitable in some environments and workplace situations. Noise can cause significant problems, however. This includes permanent damage to your hearing resulting from a condition known as noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). In fact, almost all cases of NIHL are caused by noise in workplaces.

The Problem With Excessive Noise

Noise is inevitable in some environments and workplaces. This is especially the case in sites that use especially loud and heavy equipment, such as factories, construction, and industrial sites. However, exposure to excessively high levels of noise, especially over long periods of time, can lead to significant problems for your workers.
Excessive noise in the workplace
Excessive noise can lead to distraction, frustration, and reduced productivity, which can cause conflict situations in the workplace. This is also a real health and safety hazard. For instance, the leading preventable occupational health condition is ‘noise-induced hearing loss’ (NIHL). This refers to permanent damage to hearing caused by excessive noise. What’s more, nearly all cases of NIHL are caused by noise in workplaces.
For these reasons, it is important to invest in an acoustic control solution such as noise blocking curtains, for the sake of your workers’ health and well-being.
High levels of noise can:

  • Cause hearing loss
  • Lead to tinnitus
  • Disturb sleep
  • Cause fatigue and aggression
  • Reduce immune response
  • Lead to heart disease

Regular exposure to high levels of noise can create cumulative, irreversible damage to hearing. As this occurs gradually, over a number of years, it may remain unnoticed for a long time. However, despite being a slow and painless process, it is permanent.
This is because loud noise destroys the hair cells in the inner ear, and once they are destroyed, they do not grow back.
NIHL can lead to health and safety risks in the workplace, too. For instance, reduced hearing could cause workers to be unable to hear warning sounds such as alarms or car horns, or vital workplace noises like supervisors giving directions. This can lead to increased absenteeism and lower productivity.

How Noise Blocking Curtains Work

Noise blocking curtains are specially made acoustic cushions made of a fabric designed to control noise. They dampen and absorb sound and minimise its ability to bounce off walls, which causes it to echo.

They even offer thermal insulation properties – making them a flexible solution for multiple environmental control needs. They are easy to install and remove and designed explicitly for intense noise like that produced by construction, demolition, and drilling. These features are why they are a popular choice for meeting health and safety requirements.

 

Where Can I Use Soundproof Curtains?

There are many applications for these flexible, easy-to-use curtains. Common places you can use a Hushtec soundproof curtain in nclude:

  • On construction sites with heavy machinery
  • Around compressors and saw drills
  • On sites where demolition works are taking place
  • Around refurbishments on occupied buildings
  • Around road and earthworks

 
As you can see, noise blocking curtains are suitable for a wide range of sites and situations, where their acoustic dampening properties go far in controlling levels of noise.

 

Soundproof Curtains Can Help Reduce Excess Noise

The right solution can help lower your noise levels and minimise the impact of excess noise by absorbing and reflecting unwanted sound. Reduced noise levels will help you and your workers focus better, comply with local regulations and consent requirements, and keep your customers happy.
