Environmental Noise Control specializes in all aspects of environmental noise & vibration measurement, analysis, and mitigation.

Temporary Compressor Sound Walls

Environmental Noise Control, Inc’s temporary compressor sound walls & pipeline excavation operation noise barriers typically range in height from 16 to 32 ft. They can be installed on one, two, three, or all four sides of a gas compressor station to meet the sound control requirements of the site. ENC’s STC-25 modular acoustical wall panel system is designed to effectively block compressor noise from propagating into the surrounding environment while allowing for quick & efficient installation and removal. For optimum environmental noise impact reduction, the sound walls should be positioned as close as possible to the noise sources while allowing for access and adequate airflow.

ENC STC-25-rated sound wall panels typically reduce equipment noise levels by 15 to 22 dBA on the sides of the compressor equipment where the wall is installed. All temporary gas compressor sound walls are pre-engineered to meet or exceed IBC wind and seismic loading requirements.

ENC’s sound blanket walls are constructed with 8-foot high by 20-foot long steel frames and 8-foot high by 20-foot long STC-­25 acoustic blankets mounted on each frame. Each blanket panel has a 1-foot wide sealing flap on the bottom and on one side to provide acoustical sealing with the adjacent panels when installed.

The acoustical panels can be installed one panel high (8′ high), two panels high (16′ high), three panels high (24′ high), or four panels high (32′ high) and affixed to steel support poles or I-beams installed on 10-foot centers. The acoustical panels are connected to the vertical support structures with specially designed connectors that allow quick installation and removal. Where site conditions do not allow for structural support augmentation, ENC offers a “K” rail-supported temporary sound control wall system.
