Two reclaimers with operator cabins located close to bucket wheel and drive components. Operators subjected to excessive noise, causing OHS concerns. Airborne and structure-borne noise, typically at low frequencies

Product recommendations

  • Clean all substrates with Megasorber AC5 adhesive cleaner to maximise adhesion
  • Floor area: Adhere 2 layers of D14 to the underside of the floor panels
  • Cabin wall and ceiling: Apply 2 layers of D14 then FG50 on top
  • Floor cavity: Place Megasorber C50 inside the cavity under the floor
  • Access door: Apply 2 layers of D14 to door panels then FG50 on top
  • Seal the joins between panels with colour matching Soundmesh® G8 tape

Product features

Port Kembla coal reclaimer cabin


“We collected noise data pre-works and post-works and were able to achieve an overall noise reduction inside RC1 Operator’s cabin of between 12-13 dB(A).”

“The work has been successful both in terms of noise reduction, improved thermal insulation and overall aesthetics.”
