A Noise & Vibration Control Company

Acoustica is a full service noise and vibration control company. Controlling noise and vibration is a complex issue, which is why we have designed and developed a wide range of innovative products, manufactured at our own advanced facility.

Formerly named Stuart Acoustics and started by the current management during 1992 in a small garage workshop in the New Forest, we have since moved three times expanding our facilities each time. We re-located to Colchester in Essex during 2011. We can carry out acoustic surveys in accordance with ISO standards and offer a design service for detailed acoustic analysis prior to construction, in order to mitigate potential noise issues.

Our Visions & Values

We believe that constant improvements and innovation are necessary in order to provide our customers with more efficient product in time, material and energy resource usage and to maintain the stimulation and excitement of our talented colleagues.

We aim to provide our customers with our full and immediate attention and exert that extra effort and flexibility to surpass their expectations of what can be achieved in terms of quality and efficiency of service.
We aim to supply products that stand up to the closest scrutiny of our customers and that convey the enthusiasm that we have in the products and services we provide.
By focusing our efforts on fostering a culture of innovation, service and quality we attract the best people.

Proud to be part of Elta Group

Across all of our people, in all of our businesses, on all continents on which we operate, Elta Group has one purpose: To enhance life through air.

For 20 years we have been a proudly independent, family-owned group, but our foundations were laid over 45 years ago. Our foundations were built on an entrepreneurial spirit and a clear vision of meeting market needs and improving air quality. These have seen us become a leader in high-integrity solutions that move, filter, treat and distribute air, from agriculture to building services to applied technology. We’re never standing still, always living and breathing our cause, and looking to the horizon.

Engineering Capabilities

Utilising the latest design software and techniques we are able to offer class leading engineering solutions to many noise and vibration control issues. The use of 3D design packages including Flow and finite element analysis enables us to confidently propose systems and product designs with quality “designed in”. We employ qualified and experienced specialist engineers to allow us to innovate new solutions as well as offer a full technical analysis and advice service.

We also offer a full site surveying team and project manage the site installation of many solutions, including full health and safety compliance and risk assessment service, we also facilitate certified calculations for wind loadings and employ experienced steelwork support designers.

Manufacturing Capabilities

Acoustica has always manufactured our own products and this has led to a diverse and specialist manufacturing expertise using the latest CAD CAM and MRP Material Resource Planning systems to manage internal processes including Unmanned CNC punching, CNC metal spinning, CNC folding and welding.

All components are manufactured in our factory using computer numerically controlled equipment ensuring that the legendary quality of the product is “designed in” and not subject to human error during assembly. The manufacturing operations of Acoustica are managed to ISO9001 quality standards. Input from the production and assembly teams is achieved with the institution of supervisor, quality and health & safety committees.

Testing & Research

We have carried out a significant amount of product testing and research over many years we have accumulated certified data derived from methods of test for silencers for air distribution systems BS4718.

The research, development and testing has been carried out at Independent testing facilities including the faculty of the Built Environment at the University of the South West of England in Bristol where we have a long standing relationship which has included fan / silencer testing and research to BS848 pt 1 & 2 for British Airways. Testing and research has also been carried out at the Institute of Sound & Vibration Research (ISVR) at Southampton University, where we maintained a reciprocal arrangement for research with post graduate students over many years.
