Why do I need noise control?
  • A 5-decibel reduction can cut the risk of hearing loss in half.
  • Productivity of employees. Prolonged exposure to loud environments creates stress and can lead to accidents.
  • Insurance companies are applying pressure to corporations due to hearing loss filed under workman's comp claim.
  • Government regulations enforced by OSHA, State and local laws.

Sound and measuring sound, involves a lot of science and can be confusing. There are different sound waves, ranges, ways of measuring, etc. What you want is a decrease in the noise you hear, regardless of what sound waves are doing all about you.

The following widely accepted examples of SPL ratings
are very helpful in understanding "every day" noises we are familiar with and comparing to installing servers into the workplace:

40 dB(A) Human whisper
50 dB(A) Background noise in an average office, no talking
55 dB(A) Background noise in a busy office, without talking
60 dB(A) Normal conversational speech
45-55 dB(A) Typical noise from portable air conditioners
62 dB(A) Typical noise from 2 x low form factor servers with average CPU loads
65 dB(A) Typical noise from 4 x low form factor servers with average CPU loads
68 dB(A) Typical noise from 8 x low form factor servers with average CPU loads (every doubling of the number of servers leads to a 3dB(A) increase in the total noise level)
70 dB(A) Noisy restaurant or heavy traffic or household vacuum cleaner

This report (from Purdue reprinted from Temple University) on the perceptions of noise is worth reading. It's short, download here to help you understand in layman's terms the perceptions of different levels of dB(A) (decibles). It's not just A - B = C .

We have a white paper that might be of interest on a related subject (PC Noise) - it includes a few introductory paragraphs on acoustics, sound pressure and power levels, and the decibel scale etc (Download here). This paper helps to explain why sound power is a more comprehensive & comparative measure of overall noise levels than sound pressure.
