    Spectra Tech employes sophisticated equipment and software to measure and document the Day-Night Average Sound Level (Ldn) as well as the associated Daytime Average Sound Level (Lday), Evening Average Sound Level (Levening), Nighttime Average Sound Level (Lnight). We can also provide assistance in designing solutions to reduce excessive noise, either at the "source" or "receiving" location.

    • Testing can be conducted in accordance with ASTM E1014-08 Standard Guide for Measurement of Outdoor A-Weighted Sound Levels, ASTM E-1503-06 Standard Test Method for Conducting Outdoor Sound Measurements Using a Digital Statistical Sound Analysis System, or ISO 1996 Acoustics -- Description, measurement and assessment of environmental noise -- Part 1: Basic quantities and assessment procedures
    • The Day-Night Average Sound Level (Ldn) are derived from formulae in accordance with the HUD standard.
    • We employ self-contained weatherproof systems that can operate unattended on battery for up to one week, with onboard memory to measure noise levels continuously in order to derive the Day-Night Average Sound Level (Ldn) and associated results.
    • Our systems can simultaneously log the noise spectrum in all 1-octave or 1/3-octave bands, providing a basis for design of noise mitigation measures.
    • To further help in identifying the source(s) of excessive noise, our systems can record actual audio of noise that exceeds preset thresholds
    • Plot / Print Test Results: We can provide documentation of test results by plotting / printing the test values on paper, and / or provide the reslts in PDF format.
