Title Reducing the noise emission by metal shuttering in plants manufacturing prefabricated concrete elements
Original title Lärmminderung an Stahlschalungen in Beton-Fertigteilwerken [in German]
Bibliographic information 1993, No.2, p.21-24. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Noise sources in manufacturing plants for prefabricated concrete elements were determined. Through the elimination of all loose joints on existing metal shuttering and the use of silenced concrete vibrators, noise level reductions of 15 to 18dB(A) could be achieved. The noise exposure of workers was lowered from 110 to between 90 and 95dB(A).
