Importance of Reducing Industrial Noise Pollution

Noise pollution is harmful to people passing by the area and can cause serious health concerns for the individual. The NSW Government has placed noise pollution regulations to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the public from the harmful sound. Due to these regulations, Industrial businesses are now implementing the use of a noise control tarpaulin to ensure the sound is absorbed and is not causing any public disturbance.

Due to the disturbance for the public caused by machines and construction noise, the construction industry is limited to working several hours as stated under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.  If they don’t follow the regulations set out, Industrial businesses are faced with penalties.

Noise control tarpaulin is now an important method for industrial and construction areas where it is not possible to limit the noise pollution caused by machinery. These tarpaulins absorb the pollution once they have enclosed the area.  At Polytex, we offer Sound Stop® Acoustic Screen to control noise and prevent businesses from causing health concerns to the public. Our Noise control tarpaulin is made out of vinyl, polyester, and PVC to absorb the sound and stop it from escaping to the public once it has enclosed the industrial site.
