Acoustic measurement

You like it clean, we make it quiet.

Acoustic measurement

Turn up the power, turn down the noise
Enter the acoustic measurement room in STIHL plant 2 and prepare yourself for complete and utter silence. It's like nothing you've experienced before - but there's a good reason for it. This is where our acoustic development engineers measure the noise levels of our tools through an array of microphones dotted around the room.

Work quieter and everyone's happy
The results we get from the accoustics chamber are critical. They make a big contribution to cutting the impact of noise on neighbourhoods and quiet areas such as hospitals. We also measure noise levels at ear height so we can gauge whether hearing protection is necessary. The results we get are clearly shown on every tool so you can select your STIHL with noise in mind.
