03/05/2018

Note: The blog below includes information from the Sauermann Group`s Kimo brand. A recognised leader of portable and fixed measurement equipment for over 30 years, Kimo provides a wide range of measuring solutions for pressure, temperature, humidity, air velocity, airflow, gas analysis, air quality, sound level, and other parameters. In 2015, Kimo joined the Sauermann Group. The Group operates two main brands: Sauermann for condensate removal pumps (including accessories and solution kits) and instruments for improving indoor air quality, and Kimo for instruments aimed at measuring and monitoring air parameters.

When you work in interesting sectors or live close to them, you are often surrounded by noise.

For example, if you work in manufacturing or live near a factory, you may often hear many different industrial noises.

Likewise, if you work in the services sector, or live near them, close to restaurants, nightclubs, airports, etc., noise is an everyday reality for you.

In fact, in many European countries, there are laws and ordinances that limit workplace sound. For example, in the European Union and France, there are regulations in place to protect workers. For any continuous noise over 70 dB(A), employers are often required to provide preventative actions, such as personal protection equipment, soundproofed walls, or enclosure of machines, etc.

The Sauermann Group`s Kimo Instruments has a line of dosimeters that allows you to monitor noise over prolonged periods of time.  

For example, Kimo`s DS 200 and DS 300 dosimeters  are specialized sound level meters intended to specifically measure the noise exposure of a person integrated over a period of time. They are in compliance with the 2003/10/CE Directive, NF S 31-084 and ISO 9612:2009 standards. 

If you need to monitor your noise environment to protect your personal health and safety, look no further than the Sauermann Group`s dosimeters.
