Let’s face it: Machine shops are loud. If you have a machine shop as part of your business, you know what a ruckus it can make. A machine shop consists of multiple apparatus with metal grinding against metal countless ways, over and over again, all over the workspace. The din all that action makes is almost on a par with road construction or airport runway noise.
What can you do? No matter how much you lubricate those machines, they are going to make noise. Do you have to just accept it?
Not only don’t you have to accept it, but also your duty is to do something about it. If your machine shop is in a populated area, you are generating a significant amount of noise pollution that may be irritating or even harming your neighbors. Even if your machine shop is in an industrial location far away from any urban centers or suburban residences, the noise your machine shop makes will always be a problem for one group of people: your employees.
It may surprise you to learn that machine shop soundproofing with Soundproof Cow products can not only block the sounds of your operation from leaking into the outside world, but it can also protect your workers.
Naturally, your employees cannot help but hear the sounds of the machines they are working on. The problem with machine shop sounds is that they are they both loud are harsh. If machines made noises like ocean waves, no one would think it was very much of a problem, but the frequency machine sounds are on is a lot closer to the nails on a chalkboard variety.
Our Soundproof Cow soundproofing materials can help with this by offering sound-dampening and deadening properties. These materials not only prevent sound transfer, but they also absorb and dampen ambient sound so they are not as harsh or as loud.
This can make a dramatic difference for your employees. Combining good soundproofing with solid ear protection can help your employees ward off headaches and earaches, can let them communicate better and can even lead to a generally better mood around the workspace. Many machine shop managers may find soundproofing is well worth the investment just for the boost it produces in employee morale.
- Reduces the amount of noise pollution your company puts out into the environment
- Makes the harsh, loud sounds of your machines in the workspace cleaner and softer for the benefit of your employees
- Protects your privacy by not letting outside interests hear what is going on in your factory
