Medical Center Generator Noise Enclosures – Acoustiblok’s AWSP® were used to dramatically reduce the noise coming from an externally housed generator. Reflections from the generator were causing issues for neighbors as well as the staff and patients in the medical center. Following the installation of the noise enclosures, there have been no complaints.

Primary Noise Source
Above is a real-time acoustical video of noise exiting a generator enclosure, as seen by the ARTVIS Service camera at the property line. Typical treatment would place a barrier between the generator and the property line.
Above you can see a blocking of the primary noise source on the left, as if a barrier were present. As you can see, a barrier will not prevent 1st reflections from traveling back toward the property line.
