Unwinding Noise below 85 dB
The new Low Noise technology allows to unwind very high adhesion protective film rolls with a noise level below 85 dB. This noise level reached is below the existing internationals standards and particularly the 2003/10/CE directive from the European Parliament, and the legal limit sets by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States Department of Labor (Directive TED 01-00-015). The legislation at work enforces to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) from 85 dB, the permissible exposure limit (PEL).
The Low Noise Technology allows a quieter working environment during lamination of very high adhesion protective film on surface. The decibels gain, measured by an independent accredited control laboratory allows to avoid the mandatory hearing protection devices (HPDs) wearing and offers to operators on production line an unmatched hearing comfort.
The committees for Health, Safety and Working Conditions within companies and occupational medicine services are looking for solutions allowing to fight against the noise in workshops. The NOVACEL® Low Noise technology is a response to this need.
The productivity and the quality of customers are of course linked to operators concentration on the production line. A less noisy working environment, thanks to the new Novacel Low Noise technology, goes in that way. This technological innovation preserves the operators health, essential component of wellbeing at work.
The new Low Noise technology allows, de facto, to reduce the costs linked to hearing personal protective equipment now redundant, as well as equipments directly integrated on protective film lamination machine.
