Noise insulation for ships
Noise protection on all types of ships is becoming increasingly more important. We remedy noise problems by installing noise protection hoods directly at the source. If it is difficult to install hoods due to the shape of the source of noise (motor or engine) or the surrounding area (other components, pipes, electrical cabinets, etc.), it is still possible to absorb the noise through wall and ceiling insulation with perforated sheet metal panels.
Furthermore, it is also possible to reduce structure borne noise by gluing additional panels onto the steel partitions and floor surfaces. We can also install floating floors in high level decks.
