In 2006 noisy pubs, clubs & entertainment venues affected over 5 million people in the UK that is approx 9 % of the population. Recent research would suggest this has dramatically increased in the last 2 years.

Everyone likes to let their hair down and enjoy a good live band or DJ over their favourite tipple. Noise and alcohol are becoming more commonly associated especially since the smoking ban has forced smokers outside.

Sound Service (Oxford) has today published an online article designed to offer practical help for licensed premises who suffer with noise related complaints and problems.

There are many cost effective ways that a venue can reduce airborne noise transference to neighbouring properties. These include introducing a double door system, adding secondary glazing and ensuring all external duct work or air conditioning has sound reducing baffles in place over the vents.

“We supply a full range of products that a landlord or brewery can use to help reduce their noise problem. In our experience if the breweries own the properties they are reluctant to spend money to safeguard their license. We have produced this simple online guide to show what small things can be done to reduce a fair amount of sound

The cost of losing a public entertainment license and then the subsequent trade associated with that would be far more costly than installing some of our products.” Outlines Steve Backhouse of the Technical Team.

Sound Service would advise anyone suffering with noise related problems from licensed premises to pass the companies details to the owner or licensee BEFORE taking the matter to the local authorities themselves. This will give the pub or club a chance to treat the noise issue without being threatened with court action.
