We love to measure! Testing has been an essential element of our engineers’ work across their 50 years of combined experience in acoustics and vibration. We provide precision noise measurements of a variety of sources including transportation, HVAC, mechanical noise, and voices through walls. We also deploy our sophisticated equipment and highly trained staff to identify problem spots in existing buildings and to help architects and other construction professionals ensure new structures are comfortable for their occupants. When remediation is required, our engineers always deliver solutions informed by accurate, precision measurement.
Our Noise Testing Services Include:
- Field STC (ASTC or NIC) testing
- Field IIC (AIIC) testing
- Sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) testing
- Acoustic measurements
- Transportation noise and vibration measurements
- Monitoring to ensure compliance with noise ordinances
All of our on-site noise testing services conform to ANSI, ASTM, BOCA, ISO and IBC standards.
Measuring HVAC and Environmental Noise:
Most solutions for environmental noise begin by asking “how loud is it?” We use professionally calibrated equipment to provide a precise answer through 24-hour site surveys or smaller-scale testing, as appropriate. Whether the issue is HVAC equipment, generators, construction activity or other common challenges, we can quantify noise from any source. Sound transmission class and impact insulation class represent the most common building code issues related to noise transmission. In our work, we frequently assess both, providing measurements that confirm compliance with all local and national standards.
Our testing services extend to vibration, as well. When buildings house sensitive equipment, Phoenix Noise & Vibration provides surveys to gauge the existing level of vibration in the floor system. We can assess the feasibility of using a space for extremely sensitive equipment, such as an electron microscope or medical imaging technology, and our team offers remedial engineering to help rooms meet demanding specifications.
