A good aural environment contributes to the well-being of the user. By setting requirements relating to the noise level of equipment, the aural environment of an industrial kitchen is improved.
- Technical specification
- Professional dishwashers
The sound pressure level of dishwashers shall not exceed the levels shown in the table below. The sound pressure level shall be measured according to EN 11203, EN 11204 or an equivalent standard.
|Dishwasher type||Sound pressure level [dB(A)]|
|Undercounter type dishwasher||65 dB(A)|
|Hood type dishwasher||67 dB(A)|
|Pot and pan dishwasher (with/without granules)||70 dB(A)|
|Rack or flight type dishwasher||70 dB(A)|
|Combination type dishwasher||70 dB(A)|
The supplier shall, upon request, be able to present any of for example the following:
- Product information sheet that specifies the sound pressure level dB(A).
- Test protocol issued in accordance with the standards specified in the requirement, showing that the sound pressure levels are met.
Check that the dishwashers that are delivered under the contract meet the sound pressure level requirement. Some ways to do this are to check the product information sheet or to inspect the measured sound pressure level in test protocol. Ensure that the measurements have been made in accordance with the standards indicated in the requirement or equivalent standards.
The version date indicates when the sustainability criterion was created or last updated. Last reviewed dated tells when we last checked that the sustainability criterion still is relevant.
