Noise enclosures, (also referred to as acoustic enclosures), are a key design element in bringing industrial, process, and manufacturing facilities to safer noise levels for a better work environment.
Designed to capture the noise source or the people impacted by the noise, the proper design of a noise enclosure will account for operator and maintenance access, ventilation, safety codes, air quality and egress, and possible needs for future expansion.
Industrial & Environmental Applications
Applications that significantly benefit from acoustic enclosures includes Control Rooms, Plastic Granulators, In-Line Product Test Stations, Backup Power Generators, Compressors, Manufacturing Equipment, Positive Displacement Blowers, Test Chambers, Vacuum Blowers, Air-Cooled Chillers, Cooling Towers, Wastewater Treatment Plants, Generators, Fans, and Blowers.

O’Neill noise enclosures consist of pre-engineered, modular acoustical metal panels (“building blocks”) that can be configured and assembled into a wide variety of structures used to control and reduce excessive noise levels in industrial, commercial, institutional and community environments. Moduline is particularly suited for applications requiring a high degree of noise reduction of 40 decibels or more combined with rugged durability. Moduline is particularly well suited to:
- Integration of lighting, ventilation, fire fighting systems, air-conditioning, etc.
- Available sound and vibration isolating floor systems
- Designs for interior and exterior installation sites
- Available Noise-Lock® sound control door & window systems
- Installation services that can be included in IAC Acoustics’ scope of supply
Acoustic Enclosure Walls, Ceilings & Floors
- Moisture protection for absorption materials prevents entrapment of volatile or corrosive liquids
- Noise-Foil® sound absorption system reduces reverberant build-up within existing “hard” structures
- Optional Fire-Noise-Lock® construction provides certification of 1.5 hour fire rating — all components shipped with UL label
