Diesel Generators in weather proof Acoustic Canopies –
Acoustic Canopies are, in effect, a large box lined with acoustic installation. Each acoustic canopy also has purpose built louvers for free flow ventilation and to reduce the external sound levels.
Sounding proofing is accomplished by lining each section of the acoustic canopy with thick insulation to absorb the noise emitted when thel generator engine is running. Without any sound proofing the generator is termed-“an Open Set”- these have no canopy or container.
The most common level of sound proofing for generators is the E.U. standard of 80dbA @ 1 metre open field conditions. This is by far the majority of all acoustic canopied generators that we have manufactured and installed in the last 10 years.
When the generator is to be permanently sited outside , that’s when you need the generator to be its own acoustic weather proof and lockable canopy . Weatherproof and secure.

These are the most common acoustic canopies available from stock:-
Acoustic and weather proof canopy – With sound proofing by means of the acoustic canopy that is both lockable and weather proof – These are usually installed outside a building in a car park or outside the intake room and 80dbA @ 1 metres noise level
Containerised – With sound proofing by means of the acoustic lined container that is both lockable and weather proof – These are usually installed outside a building in a car park or outside the intake room. Containerised generators are usually larger generators above 500kVA and upward, and are 80dbA @ 1 metres noise level
Bespoke built generators – We can custom build in accordance sound levels required. Below are a choice of sound levels available:-
Silent Specification to have 75dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions Super Silent Specification to have 70dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Extreme Silent Specification to have 65dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field conditions
Whisper Silent Specification to have 60dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field
Super Silent Whisper Specification to have 55 dbA or less noise emissions @ 1 metre in open field
Remember – if you don’t want your generator sited outside; We can custom build any of our generators accordance with your clients requirements into a building –i.e. Retrofit or even build custom made sound attenuation into an existing building or a roof – Click here for more information on how PowerContinuity builds sound attenuation into existing buildings.
