Suite of class-leading 01dB noise and vibration monitoring instruments is now available to rent in Australia exclusively from Air-Met Scientific (Air-Met).
Air-Met Rental Manager, Andrew Marom prepares a 01dB DUO sound level meter for dispatch to a new rental customer. The DUO is the most popular 01dB noise monitoring instrument available for long and short-term rental periods.
With over 30 years of expertise in providing scientific instrument-solutions in six locations around Australia, Air-Met has chosen 01dB to meet the noise and vibration monitoring needs of its Australian customers with:
- DUO – Sound level meter & monitoring station
- FUSION – Smart sound & vibration analyser
- CUBE – Smart noise monitoring terminal
- ORION – Smart vibration monitoring terminal.
“Rent or Buy? It depends,” says Peter Shiels, Air-Met General Manager Product Sales & Development. “Since 2011, Air-Met has been selling 01dB equipment in Australia. But for some customers, the ability to rent (instead of buy) precision 01dB instruments is a real financial and non-financial advantage.”
“For some, it’s about keeping costs down without sacrificing access to world-class noise and vibration monitoring equipment for their project. For others, it’s the realities of a tight schedule or one-off monitoring event driving customers to find an easy-to-use but ready-now tool,” added Peter.
“The demand for 01dB instrument rentals has been consistently high,” commented Andrew Marom, Air-Met Rental Manager. “The most popular item from the 01dB product range is the DUO smart noise monitor which is extremely flexible and widely used across the construction and mining industries. The 01dB CUBE [smart noise monitoring terminal] is also popular, particularly in Victoria.”
“01dB equipment renters typically are environmental consultants and occupational hygienists to construction sites, industrial plants and airports,” observed Andrew.
“Customer feedback has been very positive,” said Peter. “I’ve found that 01dB users appreciate the telemetry capabilities of the instruments allowing for access to real-time data instead of the traditional need to download the data after going back into the office. They also enjoy the connectivity of the instruments and the software.”
