As is the case in most heavy industries, mining can expose workers and on-site visitors to extremely high noise levels. Most mining companies recognise noise as a hazard requiring control, however, many only take actions that focus primarily on protecting people rather than reducing noise emission by engineering means.
The failure to introduce engineering methods, such as modular noise barriers, puts workers at risk of developing Occupational Noise Induced Hearing Loss (ONIHL). To best protect your workforce, it’s wise to implement custom-designed modular noise reduction systems that can be modified to suit a variety of applications within your mining site.
Noise barriers in the mining industry must eliminate or reduce noise created by:
Government bodies advise that these noises should be eliminated if possible, preferably by noise control at the source. Where such noise emissions cannot be eliminated completely, however, emissions should be minimised by best-practice noise control and operational measures.
If you work in mining construction or development, it’s your duty to reduce and manage noise pollution, and it’s our job to deliver the solutions that help you to make that happen.
Tested to meet Australian engineering standards, our modular barrier systems have been specifically designed to successfully manage unwanted noise created by activities carried out on a daily—and often nightly—basis within the Australian mining industry.
Not only have our products been approved by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), our reflective noise walls also boast an acoustic rating of RW28 and our absorptive walls an NRC rating of 0.95. These superior acoustic qualities make our solutions the go to choice for many companies who work in the Australian civil infrastructure sector.
We’ll help you design noise barriers that move with your mining site
Easy-to-install, lightweight and long lasting, our custom-designed modular solutions can be dismantled as quickly as they can be installed. This is beneficial for mining companies in particular, as work sites and equipment often need to migrate from region to region. Working with modular solutions thus saves you the hassle of having to start your noise reduction systems from scratch if you ever have to relocate your mining site.
Known for their superior sound reduction qualities, Dunewall systems are often installed on mining sites as they can be pre-engineered to heights of up to 12 metres while remaining easy-to-install and dismantle for greater flexibility. Dunewall’s smart noise reduction system can also be customised to provide not only acoustic protection, but also dust protection, making it an ideal choice for mining sites that are ever-exposed to harsh Australian weather conditions. If security is a concern, Dunewall systems can also be modified to include spikes or razor wire holders.
