How we build Acoustic Generator Containers and Attenuation
Acoustic generator containers for diesel generators are built to reduce the impact on the local ambient sound level environment, i.e. noise control together with all weather protection.
An acoustic container or acoustic canopy is built from numerous parts which include;
custom made silencers, air inlet, outlet, fans , plenums, bespoke insulation with vibrate control, all built by PowerContinuity to reduce the noise levels of diesel generators.
Whether your generator is requiring an acoustic canopy or an acoustic container, we follow the same principal. First we take sheet metal, then we manufacture a welded rigid frame with dimensions to enclose the openset generator to reduce sound, protect the generator from the weather, include a fuel tank and add lockable doors.

What is the difference between an acoustic canopy and acoustic container?
Acoustic canopy encloses the generator for sound and weather protection but doesn’t allow an engineer physical access to stand inside. The engineer opens the access doors to be able to service and maintain the generator, whilst standing outside.
An Acoustic container encloses the generator for both sound and weather protection but also allows the generator engineer to ‘walk inside’ to service the generator away from the elements.
Depending where your generator is situated, the EU norm of 80dBA @ 1 metre may well be perfectly acceptable. If your site requires a more robust approach to noise control we can build an acoustic container to very low levels of 55dbA @ 1 metre or lower.
