Noise matters, so let us help you take control of your event, your licence and your future.

More and more, off-site noise problems are affecting the licensing of live music events, putting a strain on relationships with both the public and the licensing authority or even spelling their end. Effective noise monitoring takes manpower and resource, and in the light of cutbacks this service is likely to be either dramatically reduced or withdrawn altogether.

Therefore the use of independent monitoring specialists is becoming a necessity in order to ensure the longevity of events and ensuring your event is compliant with Noise Council Guidelines requires a constant flow of real-time information and communication at all noise-sensitive locations on and off site.

Our new real-time ‘NTI’ noise management system, developed specifically for the events industry gives greater flexibility in solving the problems associated with environmental noise monitoring at outdoor events. We work closely with local licensing authorities to draw up Noise Risk Assessments pre-event and monitor locations on and off-site at agreed noise-sensitive locations during the event, remaining in constant contact with front of house teams to advise on the frequencies which may need to be controlled.

With the total data picture available at all times (including a spectrum analysis of rogue sub bass frequencies which are often a significant factor in noise problems), we offer a constant and accurate assessment of noise levels and a full print log of the entire proceedings within minutes of the show’s end.

Additionally, with a little forward planning our experience and expertise can also be put to use advising on sound system placement and design, which can often alleviate many of the problems in noise sensitive areas.

It’s not just your audience you need to consider. Our team are also experts in ensuring that Noise at Work regulations are being met to ensure both your crew and your audience are safe.
