Flexshield  specialises in engineering some of the most effective noise control solutions for workplaces in Australia. Controlling noise levels properly can be crucial for businesses to ensure a safe working environment.

Australian law specifies 85dBA as the maximum safe level of noise exposure allowed in a workplace over an eight-hour period. However, this threshold is frequently breached by businesses involved in particular types of manufacturing operation.

Many workplaces solve this problem by having workers wear personal hearing protection devices. However, the National Standard for Occupational Noise points out personal protectors should not be used if there are any administrative or engineered noise control methods available that can eliminate the risk.

Solutions offered by Flexshield to decrease the level of noise caused by machinery or workplace situations include soundproof doors.

Acoustic doors can be designed as swing doors or sliding doors, depending on the application. They provide effective soundproofing for access areas and can also be fitted with panic bars, burglar-proof locks and even peep holes.

Flexshield’s soundproof doors also include PVC swing doors for internal soundproofing that provide adequate noise reduction while still allowing convenient access between work areas for staff and machinery. The transparent doors increase worker safety by maintaining 100% visibility.
