Since 1952, Eckel Noise Control Technologies has manufactured state-of- the-art noise control products and systems for a wide variety of commercial, industrial, educational and government applications. The companyís architectural acoustic panels provide a high level of sound absorption for spaces whose acoustics create an unhealthy or uncomfortable environment.

Eckelís sound-absorbing acoustic panels find wide use in large spaces such as gymnasiums, pools, auditoriums, places of worship, and correctional facilities. Industrial applications include water and wastewater treatment plants, manufacturing facilities, warehouses and distribution centers. They also dramatically improve the acoustic environment in smaller spaces such as health clubs, enclosed racquet sport rooms, restaurants and meeting rooms.

Eckel also manufactures self-contained, sound-insulated enclosures such as audiometric rooms and booths for hearing testing; recording and voiceover rooms; and industrial enclosures for noise-producing machinery. Eckelís acoustic test facilities, such as anechoic chambers and reverberation rooms are considered the industry standard for acoustic testing in product design and development for automotive, industrial, audio, electronic and aircraft/aerospace equipment.

Full/Hemi Anechoic Chambers

Full Anechoic Chambers
FULL ANECHOIC CHAMBERS are engineered acoustical structures that simulate "free field" conditions, where the walls, floor or ceiling absorb 99% to 100% of the incident sound energy. These chambers are constructed with noise attenuating outer structures of masonry or modular panels and have all interior surfaces lined with anechoic wedges.

Hemi-Anechoic Chambers
HEMI-ANECHOIC CHAMBERS have acoustical treatment on the walls and ceiling only and feature hard floors with no acoustical treatment. The solid floor of the hemi-anechoic chamber is common for testing large and heavy equipment such as automobiles, construction equipment, ATV's or white goods and appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, where the normal mode of operation is over a reflective plane such as a floor or hard road surface.

EMP Applications image

EMP Applications

EMPs effectively isolate personnel from noisy machinery and equipment, which can provide for a safer, more productive, OSHA compliant work environment.

EMPs offer a viable, reasonably priced method of quieting the industrial environment. They can be used as machinery enclosures to reduce noise levels around existing in-plant machinery.

Similarly, EMPs can be incorporated by manufacturers as part of an OEM "silencing" package for new machinery, eliminating the manufacturer's need for extensive, costly machinery redesign.

It is common to employ the panels to construct sound conditioned in-plant offices and control rooms. Such enclosures allow personnel to work in a comforatble acoustical environment. Personnel fatigue is lessened, accidents reduced, and communications improved.

Outdoor application include EMP barriers at water pumping stations, transformers, around various mechanical equipment and throughout transportation corridors.
