Measurements of noise and vibrations

Noise and vibrations are currently among the most important environmental and ecological burdening factors for employees and the population as a whole. Disturbances and stress caused by noise are not only increasing at work but also in leisure time. The lack of regeneration due to high and long noise pollution, however, leads to exhaustion and loss of performance and can even make people ill. Public protests, delays in construction, planning corrections and cost-intensive noise reduction measures can, however, also have economically adverse effects for the operator of a plant with correspondingly high noise emission.

The expert team of VDZ will provide support with its experienced and committed experts in developing cost-effective solutions to your problems (Example: incorporation into environmental compatibility investigations or licensing procedures).
