Make informed decisions about your laboratory design.

Room Design Support

VEC helps design low-noise rooms and labs to meet acoustic noise requirements for precision instruments, addressing challenges posed by industrial equipment and stringent specifications.

HVAC Supply and Return Noise

HVAC systems are typically the primary source of room noise, influenced by complex factors like equipment selection, ducting layout, sizing, and register choice. VEC models and guides your lab's HVAC supply and return noise, estimating levels in alignment with your instrument's acoustic specifications.

Wall Transmission Analysis

Blocking noise from adjacent rooms from entering the laboratory is another critical component of noise control. VEC can model the noise transmission of proposed walls and guide changes to wall construction based on modeled results.

Reverberant Noise
(Sabine Calculation) 

Reverberant noise is a room's echo or "liveliness," determined by sound bouncing off walls, floor, and ceiling. Labs aim for minimal reverberant noise. VEC uses Sabine Calculation to assess and reduce a room's reverberant noise with acoustic absorption materials.

External Mechanical Equipment

Industrial projects often depend on many significant sources of mechanical acoustic noise to support power generation and other critical infrastructure functions. VEC can help ensure you comply with local codes and ordinances during your project.

Measure noise of existing equipment and ambient noise conditions

Critical to modeling the impact of future mechanical equipment is quantifying the current levels of acoustic noise on a site. VEC typically achieves this with on-site testing based on local ordinance requirements and equipment use.

Mechanical Noise Source Addition

Determining the total noise of equipment, planned and existing, at your facility is critical to determining the noise at the property line. VEC uses site testing data and manufacturer-provided data sheets to conduct this analysis.

Calculate noise at the Property Line and Compare it to Local Noise Ordinances

VEC will take the noise from each equipment or group of equipment and determine the noise levels at the property line or point of interest. VEC will account for any noise barriers in the calculation and, if required, make recommendations to determine compliance with local noise ordinances.
