Construction Noise Control

Quiet Noise from Construction Sites

Construction site noise can pose special problems for controlling noise. Several different factors can contribute to construction noise such as weather, atmosphere, landscaping, and construction noise makers, e.g., earth moving equipment.

Noise pollution can cause harmful effects such as speech interference, hearing loss, raise stress levels, and sleep disturbances to name a few.

Call DDS Acoustical Specialties about our construction noise control solutions if you are a Construction Company, a City Administrator, a Facilities Manager, a Safety Manager, a Human Resource Manager, or a Building Owner looking to resolve on-site, in the building or in the system noise issues.  

We have over 30 years of mitigation experience associated with the Sheet Metal, Mechanical Contracting and Construction industries, offering customizable products, services, and installations. Let our resources and solutions work for you and your HVAC and construction soundproofing needs.

Construction Noise Control Products Include

Flexible Curtain Barrier Walls

Flexible Curtain Barrier Walls feature our durable reinforced noise barrier and a UV and tear resistant exterior grade faced quilted fiberglass sound absorber sewn with a Gore Tenera exterior grade thread.

Common uses:

  • Site Fence Lines
  • Roadways
  • Detachable Panels for Heavy Equipment.

Metal Barrier Walls

Metal Barrier Walls are used to place a sound barrier between a noise source and a sensitive receiver. This barrier creates a “sound shadow” zone of quiet that can be tailored to cover almost any size area either indoors or out. Absorptive noise control barriers provide maximum noise reduction with lightweight modular panels and/or louvers.

Flexible Curtain Enclosure

Flexible Curtain Enclosure systems offer significant noise reduction with high STC and NRC acoustical ratings. They can be supplied as a partial or complete enclosure around noisy industrial equipment or an area. These systems are highly customizable.

Metal Enclosures

Metal Enclosures come in any size and are pre-engineered panel systems that include wall and ceiling panels, doors, windows, and silenced ventilation systems. Isolated floors, access panels, removable wall and ceiling panels are also available when necessary. All materials are acoustically rated by independent testing laboratories to ensure the appropriate noise reduction for every application. Equipment Enclosures, Pumps, Fans, Compressors, Large Scale Equipment Rooms, Generators Sets, Co-Gens, Turbines, Factory Offices, Control Rooms, Guard Houses

Acoustical Barriers & Lagging

Acoustical Barriers & Lagging for Pipe, Duct, Fans, Blowers, Mechanical Shafts, or miscellaneous equipment, our materials are custom fit and tailored to the specific application.

HVAC Sound Attenuators

HVAC Sound Attenuators provide effective, predictable noise reductions that will meet the most strenuous of specifications. Special or custom silencer applications for HVAC soundproofing are not a problem and can be developed for you.

Vibration Isolation Padding

Vibration Isolation Padding is used to reduce noise, high frequency vibration, and impacts from machinery. A high-grade neoprene or rubber medium can be provided that efficiently and economically controls structure-born noise, resonant vibration and provides a firm footing to both floor and equipment.

Amazing products from an amazing company! We have used them now twice at our church and just added one more room for them to do. I had high expectations when they came in initially. They did not disappoint. Everyone immediately noticed the sound quality improvement in the rooms. This product helps us, as a local church, offer a much more comfortable environment for everyone coming into our church. Thank you again everyone at DDS.

DDS did an amazing job sound proofing some difficult areas. They were great to work with and I would highly recommend them! Just to add...we had DDS come back and sound proof other areas because we were so pleased with their work. Highly recommend!

We are so thankful for the installation that DDS Acoustical Specialities did for a preschool classroom. The panels are making a remarkable difference in the sound in the room! The children and staff are able to concentrate more in the echo-free space. The company was excellent from start to finish! Fair estimate, quick turnaround, prompt, professional and high quality work! DDS was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend you call them to help with sound issues! They can improve your sound to make a difference!

From the very start DDS was a winner in my book. Dave answered the phone, came right out to assess our needs and we had a quote in no time. Their crew was informative, professional and kept their space tight and clean. And the product.... what a difference it has made in our restaurant. Even during the phases we could hear a difference from where the panels were installed and where they were not yet done. I would HIGHLY recommend them!

We recently worked with DDS Acoustical Specialties on an acoustic solution for a workstation area. We went with a combination of pinnable panels, ceiling panels, wall panels, and art panels, which have exceeded our expectations for the space.

My church engaged DDS Acoustical Specialties to reduce the noise level in our parish hall. The hard surfaces on the floor, walls, and ceiling made it difficult to converse when the room was full. We are very pleased with both the appearance of the sound absorbing foam panels which DDSAS installed on the ceiling and also with the reduction in the noise level. Many of our members have commented favorably on the improvement. I would recommend this company without reservation.

Great experience. We had a very severe sound reverberation issue in our town hall meeting room and Tyler and his team solved it quickly and affordably. Town meetings will never be filled with complaints (about the inability to hear) ever again. I highly recommend this company. And if you are ever in the Town of Sharon, Connecticut on a weekday, pop in, go to the second floor and hear for yourself

I had a great experience with DDS Acoustical Specialties from start to finish. I have a small physical therapy practice in Burlington, VT. and needed soundproofiing for my office. Mary was prompt and very knowledgable about how I could be helped on the phone and throughout the process. Steve made the long drive to provide and estimate for the work, and was extremely efficient, professional and pleasant to work with during the installation. They soundproofed the doors and ceiling tiles and it's made a tremendous difference.The entire process took about a month from start to finish. I now feel confident that my space is private and secure for my clients. I would highly recommend their services!

Great company to work with. Reasonable price for an acoustical solution in my 2900 sqf restaurant space. The noise has reduced considerably and people can hear each other even when the restaurant is fully booked. Highly recommended.
