Keeping the sound in industrial and manufacturing settings can be challenging. While it may not seem like too big of a problem if you have your employees wear earplugs or other hearing protection, too high of levels can cause permanent hearing problems and even deafness. It’s such a big deal that OSHA actually requires that certain levels of noise be maintained in order to pass inspections. In order to maintain these sound levels, many companies choose to invest in sound absorbing materials to keep their employees safe. This material is available in many different forms including ceiling tiles, barriers, wall panels, enclosures, and more depending on the needs of the company and space.
