UNDERSTANDING HOW LOUD YOUR GENERATOR MAY BE

July 23, 2021

All of our Generators across all ranges vary between 50 - 80dBa to ensure minimum distruption to others or yourself during extended use of the machines.

The decibel which is normally abbreviated dBA is the unit used to measure the intensity of a sound. The human ear is incredibly sensitive, a person's ears can distinguish between wide ranging sounds such brushing their fingers on a notepad to the loudest explosion or Jet aircraft. To put these differences into perspective a jet aircraft is 1,000,000,000,000 times louder than the quietest audible sound.

Looking on the decibel decibel scale, the smallest audible sound which is near silence registers at 0 dB. An increase of 10 decibels equates to a 10 fold increase in noise to your ear.

Important - Generators are measured and compared within the industry @ 7 metres. For an example a quiet Honda EU20i is rated at its lowest at 52 dBA.
