Acoustics and Vibration Testing Equipment and Solutions Services

Expert Acoustic and Vibration Advice and System Implementation

Our capabilities extend to design services and construction oversight for acoustically sensitive spaces within a facility, with consideration given to acoustic and vibration flanking paths, ambient sound and vibration levels, facility contributions and sound or vibration level expectations.

Services include:

  • Product and equipment specification
  • Supplier selection and material procurement
  • Engineering design
  • Design review
  • Installation and construction management
  • Owner’s representation
  • Commissioning and commissioning management
  • Acceptance criteria preparation and review
  • Independent witness testing


Product Specification

Using vibration testing equipment, the ACS engineers work with your team to size and specify requirements for acoustic products and manufacturing applications. Examples include:

  • Sound door specification – size, STC rating, door swing, fire rating, hardware type
  • Acoustic window – size, STC rating, fire and blast protection rating
  • Anechoic and hemi-anechoic room specification – room dimensions, cut-off frequency, background noise level, construction type, HVAC interface, cable pass location identification, vibration isolation requirements
  • Reverberation room specification – room dimensions, background noise level, surface finish, construction type, HVAC interface, cable pass location identification, vibration isolation requirements
  • Silencer specification – Dynamic Insertion Loss requirements for HVAC and engine silencers, allowable self-generated noise level, pressure drop limits
  • Transmission loss opening specification – clear opening dimension, removable filler panel requirements


With a state-of-the-art data acquisition system, handheld sound analyzers, impact hammers and high temperature resistant accelerometers, ACS provides a wide range of acoustics and vibration testing solutions for R&D, industrial and manufacturing applications.

  • Ambient Vibration
  • On-site Sound Surveys
  • Modal Analysis
