Backup Generator Sound Enclosure - A Community Noise Issue

System: CXFG

Backup Generator Sound Enclosure


A data/call center located in a large metropolitan area



Advantages of Proposed Solution


Project Goals

The ambient noise levels at 4:00 am were measured to be 57 dBA. It was not economically feasible for KNC to meet this sound level at every floor of the high rise condominium building so KNC proposed:

Engines Operating 1st Floor 4th Floor
1 57 dBA 60 dBA
2 60 dBA 63 dBA
5 64 dBA 67 dBA

NOISEBLOCK™ Applied Products

KNC model VRS, straight, ventilation silencers were incorporated into the ventilation design. The walls, roof and doors were manufactured of KNC model HTL-4, high transmission loss tongue and groove panels. All products are cost effective and backed by KNC’s extensive, independently tested database and history of proven performance.


The KNC team coordinated the structural steel fabricator, raw material suppliers and motorized damper supplier. The installed sound enclosure met the sound levels proposed by KNC. The client ordered an additional system for another facility requiring an enclosure for ten generator systems with a bay for switchgears.


This case study features Kinetics NOISEBLOCK™ Sound Enclosures and Commercial Duct Silencers
