Why noise control? Increased productivity. Increased profits. Research shows that prolonged exposure to noise creates stress and lowers morale. It can also lead to an increase in accidents and errors. A simple 5 dB reduction in noise can actually cut the risk of hearing loss in half. A quiet office is a productive office. How many times have you gone into work early or on the weekend because you wanted peace and quiet?
The QuietCab reduces sound by an amazing 28.5 dB - the most you can get today in a soundproof enclosure. And, the cabinet goes through independent, third-party testing to ensure it. So what does that mean? Noise is measured in decibels. So 28.5 dB noise attenuation (or reduction) means that the cabinet is removing that amount of noise from the sound source.
The noise level in a busy office with people talking measures 78 dB. Normal conversation is about 60 dB. A quiet office with no talking is 48 dB. A whisper is 23 dB. If you put the cabinet in a busy office, you'll reduce the sound to that of an office without speech. If you start with a quiet office, the sound from the cabinet would be as quiet as a whisper. In other words, you won't hear the equipment unless you press your ear against the cabinet!
The cabinet design ensures noise reduction without compromising cooling capacity. To reduce sound, the inside of the cabinets are heavily lined with one of the most effective acoustic materials available. This heavy-duty, multi-layer composite material covers all inside surfaces. Even the three cable routing panels on top are covered. For ease of use, the panels are hinged and flip up like a door. Another cable routing panel at the base is also covered. Once you route cables, additional foam-insulation is provided to close any crevices.
