Galloway Acoustics – UK
Leminar Air Conditioning Industries is the sole manufacturing licensee for Galloway Acoustics-UK product range for Qatar.
Test and Certifications
Galloway Acoustics range of silencers has been independently tested to BS 4718 and ISO 7235 on a UKAS accredited rig at Salford University (England, UK). These tests were undertaken to determine static insertion losses, flow- generated noise and pressure loss on a set range of silencers fabricated with specific acoustic splitter and airway dimensions.
Also the sound attenuators are tested to BS 476 part 24 :1987 for 2 hrs fire rating for temperatures upto 300 degree celcius by Exova Warringtonfire UK. No additional fire coating is required in this case for temperatures up to 300 degree celcius.
Key technical personnel from Leminar have been fully trained by Galloway acoustics-UK experts with respect to acoustic design, calculations and selection of the range of silencers. Galloway Acoustics design engineers are constantly on hand to assist Leminar with technical queries as and when required.
All silencers are at the Leminar factory are manufactured as per requirements of Galloway Acoustics- UK. This ensures continuity of the product tested performance across all projects where ‘Galloway Silencers’ are used. Therefore, the acoustic products as manufactured by Leminar Air Conditioning Industries LLC would require no further acoustic testing.
Acoustic & Non-Acoustic Louvres
Galloway Acoustics have designed their range of acoustic and non-acoustic louvers and can accommodate all potential applications that may require the use of louvers. All potential applications that may require the use of louvers. All the acoustic options have been tested at Aalford University to UKAS accredited standard.
Standard Construction Specifications & Models
|There are four types of acoustic louvres, these are: –|
|L-AS-150||Single Bank 150mm deep, 150mm pitch|
|L-AD-150||High performance Double Bank 2 nos
150mm deep (304mm overall),
|L-AS-300||Single Bank 300mm deep, 150mm pitch|
|L-AD-300||High performance Double Bank 2 nos
300mm deep (604mm overall),
Acoustic single leaf or double leaf louvred doors can be manufactured from either the 150mm or 300mm deep design but in both cases due to practical space and weight restrictions are only offered as a single bank option. Alternatively a nonacoustic louvred door can be offered with a back blanking plate to match areas of louvre banks that require the acoustic performance of a double bank design.
The acoustic performance figures for our standard range of acoustic louvres are shown opposite. These are based upon sound insulation (Sound Reduction Index) tests carried out by Salford University in a UKAS accredited test facility and procedure in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3 1995.
Sound Reduction Index
Sound Reduction Index Defined as ‘A set of values measured by a specific test method to establish the actual amount of sound that will be stopped by the material, partition or panel when located between two rooms.’
Noise Reduction – defined as ‘used to define the performance of a noise barrier. Established by measuring the difference in sound pressure levels adjacent to each surface.’
Acoustic Enclosures & Screens
Galloway Acoustics enclosure/screen systems are based upon five standard panel designs coded 1 to 5, type 1 being of the lowest acoustic performance and type 5 the highest. The differences between panels 1 and 5 are created by the application of varying infill components into the standard panel thicknesses.
The panel types 1 to 5 can be incorporated into three construction systems primarily aimed at different applications.
H-Frame – A cost effective industrial enclosure/screen system with a versatile number of panel connection methods.
Pentapost – High acoustic performance system with a quality aesthetic appearance. Used primarily for enclosure/screen systems that require architecturally pleasing details (fixings can be hidden) coupled with good acoustic performance.
Frameless/Site Assembly System – Primary applications for this system are internal constructions, many of which require differing aesthetic finishes applied to the internal/exposed panel face such as audiology rooms, recording studios, music practice rooms, permanent room partitions. Other applications include large industrial enclosures such as automotive spray paint booths.
The acoustic performance of both the H-Frame and Pentapost designs have been tested using a 75mm thick panel for all five available panel types. The frameless/site assembly system was tested using a 100mm thick panel, again across all five-panel types. In our opinion and as indicated during these tests the difference in panel performances for the same panel type from 75 to 100mm is marginal and as such performance figures for 75mm panels can be used where a 50mm panel thickness is required.
The acoustic tests were carried out at Salford University to a UKAS accredited standard and in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-3 1995.
