What do Sound Consultants Do?


Noise Control Solutions Limited are a team of Noise Consultants. But what exactly do we do?

Acoustics is the study of Noise & Vibration, and our services cover all aspects of the topic.

Our Noise Consultants work across many different areas of sound, which allows us to provide expert advice in many areas. Our team have worked in: Product development. Research. Hearing protection. Environmental noise. Building acoustics. Acoustic software design. Audio systems and even vehicle noise.

Often, Noise Consultants work in:

  • Environmental Noise – protecting the noise environment.
  • Building Acoustics – making sure separating walls and floors block out enough sound.
  • Noise Control – helping to reduce noise levels.
  • Vibration Control – reducing vibration levels.
  • Product development – designing products to minimise noise & vibration levels.
  • Certification – assessing devices against required legislation (eg sound power).
  • Hearing protection – testing & development of hearing protection devices.
  • Noise at Work – protecting workers hearing.
  • Audio Systems – design of audio systems and live sound.

As you can see, Noise Consultants cover a wide range of activities. You can learn more about our Noise Consultant Services here. Still, the work of acoustic consultants is generally behind the scenes. For example:

  • NVH engineers develop your car.
  • Noise Engineers test your home for sound insulation.
  • Acoustic Consultants assess the white goods you own.
  • Your workplace is assessed for Noise to protect your hearing.

Although we don’t notice these things often, the effect of acoustic consultants are all around us.
