We all know that when you use conventional diamond blades on a construction site, it can be extremely loud. Yet it’s vital to reduce noise, not only for operator health and to meet EU guidelines for noise induced hearing loss (NIHL), but also because of requirements in certain locations that are more sensitive to noise. When working in residential areas or city centres, there are many local regulations preventing excessive noise levels so it’s impossible to use conventional tools. In particular, in facilities such as schools or hospitals where you find people of a delicate disposition, it’s essential to use solutions that can reduce disruption.
With Norton Clipper Pro Silencio diamond blades you can reduce noise levels by up to eight times compared to conventional diamond blades when used on concrete, granite and other building materials.
SOUND FREQUENCY DIFFERENCE:
Cutting washed concrete on an angle grinder with 230mm blades
The Norton Clipper Pro Silencio 230mm reduces noise by 3 times (-5DB) compared to the conventional diamond blade.*
Cutting washed concrete using Norton Clipper CM42 masonry saw & 350mm blades
The Norton Clipper Pro Universal Silencio 350mm reduces noise by 8 times (-9DB) compared to the conventional diamond blade.*
As you can see from the sound frequency graphs above, the difference between the blades is clear. The conventional blade is noticeably louder than the Pro Silencio diamond blade, and would clearly cause a lot of disruption in sensitive locations.
