Acoustic panels for housing refrigeration compressors

Gilcrest Manufacturing’s Puracoustic panel system was selected by one of the UK’s most innovative engineering companies, Space Engineering, as the ideal solution for modular refrigeration compressor housings to be utilised across the UK.

The supply of acoustic panels to meet project requirements

To manufacture and supply acoustic panels, matching ancillaries and doors suitable for 40 modular soundproof compressor housings to be fitted externally. The structure needed to be modular and flexible in construction. It also needed to perform exceptionally well in the UK’s varied climate and provide sufficient airflow and noise reduction.

Sound absorbing mineral fibre core panels to provide a custom solution

Gilcrest Manufacturing manufactured and supplied a number of galvanised perforated steel wall and ceiling panels with sound absorbing 50mm mineral fibre core. This material ensured that the specific acoustic requirements were met. To resist extreme weather conditions the steel skin was finished with a Goosewing Grey HP200 laminate. Sturdy hinged safety doors and special rubber membrane sheets for weather proofing for were also supplied to fit the modular construction perfectly.
