Acoustic louvres for roof-mounted plant equipment in Covent Garden, London.
Design, supply and installation of approx. 50m² of acoustic louvres to reduce plant noise at the surrounding buildings to levels specified by the acoustic consultant.
Due to both acoustic and aesthetic requirements, two types of louvres were required for the project. To meet more stringent noise requirements, bespoke designed 300mm deep chevron acoustic louvres (Type WA-ACL-300DB) were installed, preventing line-of sight through to the plant equipment from below.
A bespoke design single bank inverted acoustic louvre (200mm deep), with an additional weather guard to minimise water ingress, was installed on the face of the surround. Due to a less stringent noise specification on this face of the surround, these louvres were designed to again eliminate line-of-sight through to the plant equipment from below, while minimising the depth of the louvre and the cost for the customer.
The acoustic louvres were designed to offer significant reductions in noise transmissions.
