Noise Reduction

The construction industry demands solutions for mitigating the nuisance of construction noise at city construction sites.

Mastering piling noise

The construction market demands solutions to control noise emissions on construction sites and in the city. Noise no longer has to be an issue during sheet pile installation. Dieseko has focused on the two main sources of sound emissions (the Power Pack, and during the vibro-installation), and has developed noise-reducing solutions for both.

An introduction to Dieseko Group’s noise reduction solutions

Acoustic Louvres for the Power Pack

The first sound source is the Power Pack, for which specially prepared acoustic louvres have been developed that can dampen the noise by up to -9 dB. The sound is muted by smart geometry and rock wool – a simple and efficient way to reduce the volume of noise by more than 70%.

Noise reduction during Vibro-installation

Another source of sound is generated by the pile or casing during vibro-installation. The newly developed mobile Noise Reduction Screen (NRS) that drapes around the profile, and is mounted to the Vibratory Hammer, protects the environment against noise pollution by lowering and raising foldable acoustic panels. The damping value is -7.5 dB at a 1-meter distance, which means a noise reduction of approximately 80%.

An 80% noise reduction made possible by the NRS

Noise Reduction Screen (NRS)

The Noise Reduction Screen is a Dieseko Group innovation. We offer a foldable, mobile sound solution applicable for vibratory hammers driving tubes and sheet piles, which enables our clients to continue their work whilst staying within noise restrictions. The NRS prototype was made to stand with an approximate height of 21m.

Watch our NRS in use here:

Last year we placed in the top 3 in the Industry Innovations category of the 2020 VDBUM Förderpreis (Innovation Awards) for the Noise Reduction Screen.

This Noise Reduction Screen can significantly reduce noise pollution on the construction site. It is one example of our solutions in the field of emission and sustainability.
