Description of The Problem
Our wood shop is too loud for the employees. There is a significant amount of noise being generated intermittently by the air compressor. Compressor noise is the most problematic. The most bothersome constant noise source in the room is the dust collection system. Other noise sources include machines running (examples: chop saw, planer, sander).

Other Areas of Concern
There is a small office in the corner of the shop where we do some desk work. We would really like to quiet down the shop as well as achieve a lower sound level in the office area.
