Meters and kits designed for use in environmental noise monitoring, including hand held equipment, recording systems and weatherproof systems

This post explains the key things you should consider when choosing noise monitoring equipment for environmental noise. If you’re looking for equipment to measure noise in the workplace, look at sound level meters.

If you know anything about environmental noise you’ll know that it can be a very tricky subject, and when it comes to instrumentation it’s no different. If you’d prefer, one of our team would be happy to listen to you and advise you of your options, call 01723 584250.


Castle Mirus Environmental Noise Meter

Environmental noise is an umbrella term for a variety of types, the most common of which are:

  • Boundary Noise Assessments
  • BS4142 Industrial and Commercial Sound
  • Noise Complaints
  • Railway Noise
  • Traffic Noise
  • Construction Noise

Each application has requirements under their relevant standards and legislation, but if budget is important to you, you want to ensure you’re only paying for features and accessories that you’re going to use. If you know the type of noise and the application which you need to measure, you can move on.

Types of Equipment

There are different types of equipment available, and the type that’s best for you will depend on the application you’re measuring for. Handheld noise meters are the obvious choice and are ideal for shorter measurements, but if you’re required to take longer term measurements, for example at the boundary of your site, then you will require a weatherproof system.dBAir Environmental Noise Monitor

What you’ll need to know:

  • Whether you need Class 1 or Class 2 equipment
  • How long you need to measure for
  • Where do you need to measure, indoor, outside, on a secure site, outside of a secure site

At this point you may want to consider whether you want to buy the equipment or hire it in. There are many benefits that renting has over buying:

  • you have access to use high quality equipment at a lower cost
  • you don’t need to worry about annual calibrations
  • the equipment will arrive to you on time and fully charged

We provide a wide range of instruments and equipment designed to monitor many of these types of noise, whether you are the complainant or the complainee. This equipment includes noise level meters, warning signs and recording devices to cover noise pollution and monitor noise levels.
