NoiseSign Noise Warning Sign

noise warning sign

We are pleased to announce a new Noise Warning Sign, imaginatively called the NoiseSign.

The NoiseSign's trigger level can be set between 40 and 114 dB(A), making it ideal for both noisy and quiet environments:

  • Factory Noise
  • Hospital and neonatal wards
  • Pubs, clubs, hotels and other entertainment venues
  • Schools
  • Libraries

Two different displays are available, one for Noisy Environments and one for Quiet Zones.

WARNING - High Noise Levels

  • Factories and other industrial environments
  • Warn staff that it is time to fit hearing protection
  • Ideal for areas with intermittent noise problems

After completing a noise survey and reducing the noise at source wherever possible, many industrial processes have occasions when the noise level exceeds an acceptable limit. Rather than insisting that staff wear hearing protection at all times, the NoiseSign can inform them when the levels are high.

SHHH! - Quiet Zone

  • Hospitals and neonatal wards
  • Schools
  • Libraries
  • Entertainment venues: hotels, pubs & clubs

In areas that should remain quiet, a gentle reminder from the NoiseSign is better than a personal reminder, which will often cause offence. When the noise levels get above an acceptable limit, the sign lights up and gives the very clear SHHH! Quiet Zone message.

Remote Displays

  • Show the noise warning over a larger area
  • One sign can control three remote displays
  • Warn staff before they enter a noisy area

To help spread the noise warning around a larger area, one NoiseSign can be connected to up to three remote display units. A remote sign mounted at the door to a noisy area can warn staff before they enter.

Each remote display comes complete with a 32ft cable to connect back to the main unit or back to another remote sign.

Remote Microphone Options - Indoor or Outdoor

If the noise needs to be measured away from the NoiseSign an extension cable with a Remote Preamplifier and Class 2 Microphone can be used. The microphone can then be mounted up to 10m from the sign.

An Outdoor Microphone with weather protection can be mounted outside, with the NoiseSign itself mounted inside. For example, it can warn operators in a Control Room if high noise levels are being generated outside by a steam valve, machinery or other industrial processes.
