Grinding Bays

Grinding operations create a number of problems. Dangerous sparks increase the risk of fire as well as the risk of personal injury to employees in adjacent work areas. Grinding dust and noise can also cause health problems.

Flexshield’s grinding bays can help control these risks and assist employees in providing a safe work area.

Grinding Bays can be a simple mobile panel system, which can be moved around the shop floor providing protection where it is needed. Alternatively, complete soundproofed areas can be created by combining Sonic System and Duraflex clear sheets.

Flexshield Grinding Bays are used to:

  • Protect employees in adjoining areas
  • Reduce risk of fire
  • Provide spark protection during grinding process
  • Control noise
  • Improve working environment
  • Comply with Government regulation

Grinding Bay applications:

  • Engineering and metals centers
  • Schools
  • Training Centers

Features of our Welding & Grinding Bays

Welding and Grinding Noise

Welding and grinding bay operations are one of the most intense noise sources in industrial working environments. Prolonged exposure to high noise concentrations can damage ear drums and cause noise-related deafness. Besides personal suffering, this often means long term absences through illness or high costs as a result of permanent disability. In less serious cases, too much noise is often the cause of loss of concentration and consequently a loss of quality and lower production volumes.

Too much noise also seriously disturbs communication on the shop floor which leads to mistakes. Studies have shown that noise pollution in training rooms leads to gaps in knowledge and even to educational errors. The government has established maximum permissible noise level standards. The maximum noise level to which employees are exposed on the shop floor should be limited to the legal maximum noise level.

Noise Control

For the design and construction of low noise welding bay training areas, Flexshield offers a complete system of Sonic Insulating Partitions. These partitions offer a significant improvement to working and ergonomical conditions in the work place.

Sonic Insulating Partitioning Systems can be built into any grinding bay design combination. The modular system can be easily, quickly and economically assembled, moved, expanded or changed into other configurations.

Each element consists of perforated plates and a fire resistant Acoustic Core. Out of these components it is easy to construct complete grinding bays, in which exhaust arms and other devices can be mounted. Flexshield is able to help design a complete layout of grinding bays and provide a one package solution including grinding bay dividing walls, grinding screens, Work Benches, Extraction, Power, Lighting, Gas Supply and even Welders.

Choose from custom made bays or DIY kits.

Flexshield grinding bays or grinding booths are custom made to suit your exact size and environment requirements. Once a solution has been chosen Flexshield is able to quickly manufacture and supply.

Grinding bays can be supplied in kit form, but installation services are also provided by Flexshield. Being a modular type system, Flexshield grinding bays offer flexibility in the event of re-arrangement or shift.

Flexshield has NATA accredited test results for acoustic grinding bays and have test results available for their welding screens. This ensures that Schools and Training Centres can relax in the knowledge that their staff and students are safe.
