“Solutions Approach” to Noise Issues

This paper describes how the manufacturers of materials and suppliers of finished products used in the field of noise control play an important role in the acoustical design process. However, it is most important that the focus be kept with a “solutions approach” in resolving the noise issues. Developing business for a materials manufacturer/supplier often finds the focus being misdirected towards the sale and less towards the real problem at hand – finding the right solution. The tools that are available are many – including absorption, barrier, damping, isolation, composites, design considerations and additional combinations. To help the customer without using the “solutions approach” is likely to be short sighted on the part of the supplier. This paper will help illustrate the long term benefits of maintaining the “solutions approach”. The intention of the paper is to emphasize our professional responsibility to the customer while at the same time meeting business goals.
