Environmental Noise Acoustics
Noise Pollution is what usually comes to mind when one thinks of environmental noise or acoustics. Community noise is of major concern in a country like India with densely packed cities. Pubs and discotheques are on the rise, especially in a city like Bengaluru. Community noise from traffic(road, rail, air), from industry and other sources is also of major concern today. Acceptable noise levels for various zones in India are given in the table below.
|Zone||Noise Levels(Day Time)||Noise Levels(Night Time)|
|Industrial Area||75 dBA||65 dBA|
|Commercial Area||65 dBA||55 dBA|
|Residential Area||55 dBA||45 dBA|
|Silence Zone||50 dBA||40 dbA|

Noise Barrier Design
Based on the noise levels observed and the site conditions we can design effective noise barriers to block most high frequency noises from disturbing you.
