"AFM were recently awarded a project to replace the cooling system within the computer room at a local radio station. The previous design saw the condensing units situated in a compound located at the furthest reaches of the building away from the computer room.
The reasoning behind this was close proximity of domestic dwellings and the associated noise levels when the units were operating. Unfortunately this led to long pipe runs from the units to the computer room with the knock on effect of using excessive amounts of refrigerant gas. The whole system was very inefficient.
We designed a system to demonstrate greater levels of operating efficiency, however we had to overcome the noise output of the condensing units as they were to be sited close to neighbouring flats.
AFM undertook a noise survey which indicated the condensing units noise levels had to be reduced by 20dB.
We contacted Environ Acoustic enclosures who very quickly and efficiently put together a proposal and quotation for acoustic enclosures to ensure the noise level control requirements were achieved.
The enclosures were delivered complete with comprehensive assembly instructions. Installation went smoothly and the condensing units fitted perfectly within the new enclosures.
Near the end of the project a local resident raised concerns that when the new air conditioning was up and running then they would create quite a lot of noise.
AFM informed them that the units were in fact already up & running: The resident was very surprised and happy with the lack of noise output generated. This was really satisfying and reassured us that Environ enclosures worked perfectly and as promised, reduced the noise levels.
Ian Pritchard, AFM Contract Manager commented “The enclosures are well designed, unobtrusive and almost invisible to sight, the perfect solution for noise sensitive areas. We would like thank Simon Parker from Environ for all of his help with this project”.
"Having worked many times with Simon and the guys at Environ for over 10 years I can safely say there is no better environmental enclosure specialist - period"
“Once again, your team were punctual and efficient, getting the enclosure fitted without any fuss or disruption. I’m impressed by the unit itself; it’s well engineered, finished to a high standard and very effective at damping- down the noise from the heatpump.”
Having worked with Environ on numerous projects over the years, I have always found them to be reliable, professional with great designs for overcoming acoustic issues. They have always provided great support and accurate technical information which facilitates them to provide and excellent all round service.
