Information

What is Horecasense?



In Dutch horeca is short for hotels, restaurants and cafés, so the hospitality and catering industry. Lately there is more pressure on the industry from governments and society to take measures to reduce sound nuisance and hearing loss.This is very difficult when you don’t have control over or insight in the sound levels of the venue and it often means investing a lot of time, money and energy in expensive systems, but not with Horecasense.

Horecasense is used for continuous measuring and registration of sound levels in music venues. More than 100 clubs and bars in Leuven and Brussels (Belgium) use the system. 

It is a simple and smooth way for measuring, monitoring and registration of sound emission in your venue. Thus you will keep control of sound emission, but also avert complaints, fines and hearing loss. For instance, by installing Horecasense you comply with the Belgium legislation for amplified noise (Versterkt Geluid).

The Horecasense-set consists of one or more sound sensors and a display for direct insight in current sound levels. In addition all the measured levels are stored online for analysis (afterward). For more information about the system click here.

Our system is affordable and easy to use. It is simple and quick to install, by us, a sound expert or yourself.

It is also possible to set notifications and daily, weekly or monthly reports.

Legislation and enforcement

Hearing damage is a broad and social problem. Not only do entrepreneurs of music venues or of the hospitality and catering industry feel the pressure to reduce hearing loss of their public, but we also expect local governments to control, maintain, legislate and take measures when necessary. To create more awareness and tackle the problem a new approach is the collaboration between government and branch organizations to prevent irreversible hearing damage together. Cities such as Leuven and Brussels are a good example of this approach.


Horecasense in Leuven 

Together with the catering establishments, the city of Leuven has organized the policy in such a way that the same system is mandatory for everyone. Leuven has chosen Horecasense. The noise levels are measured and, if necessary, reports these online to the city of Leuven. The city of Leuven wants to limit noise nuisance for residents and prevent hearing loss for the public this way. Horecasense demonstrably improves the noise management in Leuven at considerably lower enforcement costs

 

Legislation Amplified Sound Brussels 

On February 21, 2018, the new Brussels legislation on Amplified Sound (versterkt geluid – son amplifié) will be enforced. All Brussels event organizers that amplify sound indoors or outdoors will have to comply with the new legislation Amplified Sound to protect the public against noise nuisance and hearing damage without restricting the creativity of the artists. 

Important aspects of this legislation are raising awareness among all concerned and informing visitors about the health risks of intense or prolonged exposure to amplified sound. The wireless Horecasense system has been certified by the City of Brussels and by choosing Horecasense you meet the requirements for displaying and registration of the sound that are defined in the legislation. 

Find out more about the legislation amplified sound, download the guide amplified sound (prepared by Brussels Environmental department). You will find full information on their website.
