Acoustic Enclosures

Wakefield Acoustics is a UK-based acoustic enclosure manufacturer with extensive experience in designing, manufacturing and installing soundproof acoustic enclosures and industrial noise control solutions.

Noise Enclosures

From standard proprietary models through to custom-designed full turn-key solutions, we work closely with OEMs, end users, contractors and consultants to address complex noise problems across a wide range of industries, applications and noise sources.

Our experience ranges from close-fitting enclosures for fans, condensing units and pumps to large CHP and gas and diesel generator acoustic enclosures.

Compressor Acoustic Enclosures

Our acoustic enclosures are well suited to reduce noise from industrial air compressors, both inside and outside, often used alongside other products like Acoustic Louvres. Compressor acoustic enclosures can be manufactured in a range of sizes, thicknesses and bespoke specifications.

Generator Acoustic Enclosures

Using a soundproof generator enclosure is the best way to address the challenges presented by noisy gas and diesel generators.  Our experienced engineers can provide generator acoustic enclosure design for projects of all sizes across a range of industries and sectors.

Acoustic Enclosure Design

As acoustic enclosure design experts, each soundproof acoustic enclosure is cost-effectively designed to meet the most demanding of customer noise specifications often associated with complex application, access and/or environmental challenges.

Sound Enclosure Panels

All of our acoustic enclosures are built using tested sound enclosure panels which provide effective noise insulation.

Depending on noise specification, customer application, access and structural requirements we offer several types of enclosures from site-installed modular constructions, fully framed fabrications and one-piece drop-over units.

Our Acoustic Enclosures

Our enclosures are available with panel thicknesses of 50mm, 75mm and 100mm as standard, though thicker panels can be designed for specific applications where a higher level of noise reduction, or increased absorption is a necessity.

Acoustic enclosures can be manufactured from a variety of materials including pre-galvanised sheet steel, precoated/coloured steel, stainless steel or aluminium. The outer panel casing is formed from a folded steel tray, which fully encapsulates a layer of absorptive acoustic media (mineral wool) and sound-deadening layers.

The acoustic media is faced with a glass fibre scrim as standard and protected by a perforated steel sheet.

Acoustic insulation materials are odourless, rot-proof, non-hygroscopic, do not sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Industrial Acoustic Enclosures

Our range of acoustic enclosures is designed and manufactured to meet both noise reduction specifications and client-specific access and maintenance requirements. In order to create a full enclosure, acoustic panels are mounted into a support system designed specifically to suit access or maintenance requirements.

Small close-fitting enclosures would be normally be formed using a bolted panel-to-panel construction. Large acoustic canopies and screens would comprise of a skeleton frame fabricated from steel hollow sections or beams, with panels retained by bolted cleat plates or a series of folded C-channels and H-sections depending on future access requirements.

In addition, acoustic enclosures can be provided with lighting, electrical systems and fire and gas detection systems in line NORSOK specifications.

  • What is an acoustic enclosure?

    An acoustic enclosure, also known as a sound or noise enclosure or soundproof enclosure, refers to soundproof chambers to either contain or prevent the transmission of noise. These enclosures come in various sizes, ranging from small and portable units to large-scale structures.

  • What are the different types of acoustic enclosures?

    Our experience ranges from close-fitting enclosures for fans, condensing units and pumps to large CHP and gas and diesel generator acoustic enclosures.

  • What are the requirements for an acoustic enclosure?

    Ideally, the acoustic enclosure would reduce noise levels below 80 dB (A), which is the lower exposure action value of the current Control of Noise at Work Regulations in the UK.
