Diesel generators are truly incredible machines that can be used by homeowners and business owners alike. Their ability to provide backup electricity when the local power lines are down is second to none. This provides owners with both emotional reassurance as well as the obvious direct benefits.
Generators – especially un-containerised diesel generators – are very loud. So loud that working in proximity to them can cause hearing loss unless protective equipment is worn, and so loud that they present a substantial problem for nearby businesses and passers-by. As a result, laws and regulations have been passed to make sure that any portable or ‘emergency’ power generators produce only an ‘acceptable’ level of noise. A silent generator operates inside a sound proof container or generator enclosure which muffles the sound that workers, employees, customers and other members of the public hear.
