In an attempt to reduce sound radiated from a portable generator, a sound proof enclosure has been developed to absorb effectively the generator noise. This sound proof enclosure is designed and fabricated with locally available materials from the opinion of an idea which aims at easing the pains and stress of receiving the noise radiating from a portable electric generating set. The walls of the enclosure is fabricated by combining panels of foam, composite sawdust and grinded glass and an outer plywood with air trapped in-between the composite and plywood. A reverberation room method is used to measure the noise absorption efficiency of the enclosure using a 950 watts/220 volts rated generator to ascertain the enclosure performance average at 76.40% noise absorption.
