Sound and noise protection – TÜV Rheinland

Comprehensive services and consultation on sound and noise protection

Noise and vibrations are a feature of all our lives, but in the long term they can limit our quality of life and cause illness. We help industrial businesses and communities protect their employees, inhabitants and the environment through emission reduction.

Our services include everything from analysis to mitigation plans and the implementation of measures. We assist you with advice and help you develop sustainable concepts. Our expertise extends to a wide range of areas: Construction acoustics/construction physics, commercial/industrial noise, sonic construction planning, traffic noise, environmental noise, noise due to sports/leisure activities, construction noise, machine noise and vibrations and noise and vibrations in the workplace.

We use state-of-the-art technology for our measurements, calculations and assessments. As an accredited and authorized measuring body according to §29b of the German Federal Immission Control Act (Bundesimmissionsschutzgesetz, or BImSchG), we are the right partner by your side and provide optimum assistance thanks to our extensive experience. Benefit from our professional advice on all matters relating to environmental protection.

Reduce harmful environmental impacts on the basis of our sound protection and noise assessment

Our services help you avoid or reduce harmful environmental impacts – as well as the state of the art allows. Objectives differ widely. Protect your employees from noise and vibrations in the workplace in order to reduce downtimes or obtain any certification - LU you are aiming for. Or use the results of our sound protection and noise assessment to build infrastructures, develop forecasts and implement countermeasures. Noise perception often leads to conflict in urban planning. With our support, you can implement your project with legal certainty and in line with sound protection measures.
