Are you a company or sole trader operating a fleet of van vehicles? Did you know that The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005 (the Noise Regulations) that came into force for all industry sectors in Great Britain on 6 April 2006, mean you could be breaking the law. With these current regulations it stipulates that employers must provide hearing protection to employees exposed to 85 decibels or above. You also need to assess any risks including the employees health by also providing training if they are exposed to 80 decibels or above with noise pollution. However you don’t need to worry we can provide Van Sound Deadening treatments to reduce noise vibration levels.
Van Sound Deadening Solutions ideal for fleet operators
Due to vans being manufactured with the minimum of interior trim compared with passenger vehicles they are prone to noise vibration quickly resonating throughout the cabin area from the wheels. When driven at high speed on motorways the noise vibration increases substantially and in many cases exceeds the 80-85 decibels legal limit of The Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2005. Exposing your van drivers to long sustained periods of high level noise will damage their hearing and could lead to criminal prosecution for law regulation infringements.
DINITROL Van Sound Deadening treatments
Within the extensive DINITROL product range certain underbody coatings can help in reducing the noise by up to 10 decibels and this can be enough to minimise the noise in your vans to within the specified safe legal limit. This is due to most of the vibration noise being generated by the wheels and van underbody chassis then travelling upwards throughout the vehicle. However if you wish to drastically reduce the noise by around 30 to 40 decibels in the cabin, we can further apply cavity waxes into the side panels, doors and body frame crevices along with the van’s underbody chassis area.
