Silent Generators - Generator Noise Information

Whether you need a silent generator for camping, for powering a workshop without disturbing your neighbours, or just backing up your mains supply ready for a power-cut, we have a suitable silenced generator for you.

The volume of a generator is measured in decibels, using a measure called dB(A). This measurement scale is designed around human hearing from a distance of 7 metres so as to be useful for comparison: Please see the table below to compare our silenced generators to a range of familiar sound levels.

Most campsites have noise limits that require any generator to be silenced - below 60 dB(A).

A silent generator uses sound-adsorbing padding and rubber vibration mounts to minimize sound and vibration transmitted to the outside.
