MERLIN offers industrial, commercial and architectural noise control solutions. Below are some of our featured projects ranging from a variety of industries and customized solutions.
Louisiana Pacific Sawmill
Louisiana Pacific Sawmill had an issue with noise at their OSB production facility in Manitoba. Merlin designed enclosures to help reduce the noise being generated from saw equipment. In addition, one room was treated with absorption panels to help decrease noise reflection coming off of the surrounding metal walls. The goal was to drastically reduce the overall noise level in the facility to provide a safer work environment for the employees at the plant.
Tamarack Cooler Enclosure
Merlin designed and installed a noise enclosure on an Oil & Gas Compressor Facility in Alberta. A custom design was engineered to meet the noise reduction required while maintaining access to existing infrastructure. Merlin created the structural steel design, and completed the installation on site.
Forma Fitness had issues with noise transmission coming from the adjacent unit. Merlin installed an isolated wall to help reduce the sound transmission into their space. The isolated wall features isomax clips that completely separate the wall from the rest of the building, allowing it to vibrate freely and reduce wall to wall sound transmission.
Pembina Cooler Skirting
Merlin designed and installed a noise limp mass barrier material on 4 of Pembina’s compressor coolers. The retrofit helped reduce noise in the surrounding area and provide a safe work environment for nearby workers.
Harmony wanted to reduce the sound coming from their hydraulic pumps in their meat processing facility. Merlin designed and installed a noise enclosure to reduce the sound below Occupational Health and Safety limits (85dB). The blankets are installed on tracks to allow entry and easy maintenance inside the enclosure.
Merlin Integrated provided a RIM floating floor to isolate the mechanical equipment on the top floor from the rest of the building. The RIM floor provides sound isolation and keeps vibration from entering the structure. Special high load pads were engineered for the equipment. Brookfield place surpasses the Bow as Calgary’s new tallest skyscraper.
ITC Apartment Buildings
ITC wanted to mitigate the noise from equipment on the roof of their apartment buildings. In order to mitiage this noise, Merlin designed a barrier wall to reduce the sound transmission. Merlin also handled the install, completing it on time and safely!
Lafarge Exshaw Louver Project
Merlin Integrated Solutions designed and installed louvers at the Lafarge Exshaw Plant. A custom design was created to help Lafarge meet their noise mitigation requirements. Merlin completed the install successfully and more importantly, safely.
Kahanoff Dance Studio
Merlin Integrated provided floating floors and suspended drywall for the Kahanoff Dance Center located in Calgary, Alberta. The unique floating floor design helps mitigate both sound and vibration from entering the structure. Two different types of floating floors were used on this particular project: LSM Jack-up Sprung Floor, RIM Fiberglass Floor.
Wetaskawin Sound Barrier
Merlin Integrated Solutions helped mitigate noise at a substation by designing a special barrier to prevent the hum from transformers. The barrier features removable panels in the event that equipment needs to be taken out in the future. Merlin Integrated also provided their installation services on this project.
