Acoustic door solution combines effectiveness with accessibility


Noise control for generator




Newcrest Lihir Gold Mine


Lihir Island, Papua New Guinea

Initial project requirements:

Newcrest Lihir Gold Mine, on Lihir Island in Papua New Guinea, had a diesel-powered generator which was creating excessive noise levels. They sought a solution which would not only quieten the generator noise, but would also allow for accessibility to the machinery.

Flexshield solution:

Flexshield’s acoustic doors were the ideal solution, not only reducing the noise of the diesel-powered generator but also being aesthetically pleasing.

The Flexshield team supplied Newcrest Lihir Gold Mine with RW52 acoustic double doors for the diesel generator room, as well as a single acoustic door with a vision panel and RW45 rating for between the workshop and the office.

The soundproofing was completed with double acoustic door with a rating of RW45 between the workshop and spare parts room.


Flexshield’s Australian-made acoustic doors offered unparalleled noise control for the Lihir Gold Mine. The doors’ construction ensured the highest possible noise control without being thick and bulky – in fact, they are the sleekest industrial-strength doors on the market.
