Creating apertures in a building’s external fabric to allow air to enter whether by natural or forced ventilation has always caused the design team a dilemma.
Louvres have become an accepted aesthetic solution to solving this functional problem while at the same time effectively disguising the fact that an aperture exists.
Though effective in disguise to the human eye at normal angles that an aperture does exist, due consideration must be taken to the ingress of both rainwater and unwanted visitors in the form of birds and insects, while at the same time not having too large a resistance to ventilation air entry or exit.
Galloway Acoustics has designed its range of acoustic and non-acoustic louvres with these perimeters in mind and can accommodate all potential applications that may require the use of louvres. All the acoustic options have been tested at Salford University to a UKAS accredited standard.
Silencers or Attenuators are basically a system to allow the passage of airflow while at the same time providing an acoustic loss or reduction to the passage of sound or noise.
The products in themselves tend to be manufactured from basic materials and well-recognised sheet metal construction processes and designs. The real science is in acoustic design calculations, which has to be accurate, product selection, measured performance and quality of the product.
Galloway Acoustics has both rectangular and cylindrical type silencers in standard as well as custom sizes to satisfy the requirements of HVAC Duct Systems for Commercial, Institutional and Industrial Buildings.
Our Enclosures are designed and manufactured to meet and exceed client requirements and legislative demands. Their applications range from Industrial to Building Services and Architectural such as Audiology Rooms and Recording Studios. We offer enclosures in varying sizes, from small pump enclosure to large, full turnkey packages with options for ventilation, lighting and other services as required.
Galloway Acoustics Staff are on hand to assess your project details and assist with design calculations, selections and installation.
