DELIVERING THE EXPERIENCE…
DESIGN & INSTALL
Our business is built on our passion and expertise in spectacular sound and lighting performance installations. We have been setting higher standards for over 20 years with some of Europe’s most impressive venues in our portfolio of long-established clients.
Our design and installation work ranges from studio and theatre installations to several of the world’s biggest nightclub venues. PSL designs complete turnkey systems from initial building designs working with architects and M&E consultants, through to commissioning and training with system operators and exceptional levels of after-sales support.
Understanding the industry and YOUR business is what enables us to achieve the very best results. The quality of our workmanship and level of compliance is something we are extremely proud of.
Our business is about service: To deliver beyond expectation, ensuring that our clients benefit from the accumulation of years of experience. Everything we design and install is exceptional.
You are SAFE in our hands:
With a fully managed and externally audited Health & Safety and compliance system, PSL’s commitment to safe working practices is something you can be absolutely sure of.
A temporary monitoring system for an event, festival or other short-term need is normally based on battery units with mobile network access so you need no infrastructure at all to run it. Systems will run for up to 2 months without charging and run on any mobile network.
Every unit is IP65 weather proof, tamper-resistant and fully calibrated to within 0.2dBA. Transmissions are encoded and units cannot be hacked or accessed in any way and data can be seen only via the secure front-end which is restricted to those you decide to give access to.
Installing a permanent PSL sound monitoring system is extremely low-cost and hassle-free. The system is based on licences for each monitoring unit, the cost is low and PSL Monitoring will fully maintain the system for you at no additional cost at all.
The front end of the system that you see is incredibly intuitive and easy to understand. It’s based around graphs that show current and historical information. Limits, average and peaks are all shown in real time so you can see what’s happening all around your site.
Potentially one of the most powerful tools available – a small box with a very low cost!
PSL’s noise and environmental monitoring product is the result of years of experience, market research and in-depth needs analysis. The result is a service that saves huge sums of money, provides an unparalleled knowledge platform and places our customers in a position of authority, compliance and business security.
- Automatic monitoring of environmental noise level
- Weatherproof, un-intrusive unit can be placed literally anywhere!
- Calculations of average and peak dB(A)
- Facility to set alarms by text, email, phone call, or phone app alerts
- On-screen limit comparisons (LAeq – environmental)
- Physical layout noise level representations with site plans
- Temporary battery-powered installation or permanent mains supplied
- Connections via Wifi or to any mobile network
- Full history can be kept (not subject to data protection act)
Not only does PSL monitoring enable total peace of mind, implementation is simpler than you can possibly imagine!
An unexpectedly welcome difference:
Engaging PSL should be a pleasure from start to finish… it is our mission to ensure that is the case.

TESTIMONIALS – What are people saying about us?
Andy Edmeads - Festival Organiser
“We were delighted with the work PSL did to make our festival a real success this year. This was the event’s fifth year and was definitely our biggest and best yet! The team were full of ideas, solutions and offered plenty of help and suggestions along the way and on the weekend ran a very professional and good quality event”.
Paul Reed - Chief Executive, Association of Independent Festivals (AIF)
“PSL provided all of the PA and lighting for the Independent Festival Awards in 2018 and 2019 and have done a fantastic job. The venue was a warehouse which are notoriously challenging venues in terms of sound quality but the team worked tirelessly to create the best possible sound within the space. They are true experts in audio, consummate professionals and great people to work with. As a result, it was a tangible step up for the event in terms of sound and production quality. I can’t recommend PSL highly enough”.
John Saunderson - Notting Hill Music Publishing
“PSL provided not one but TWO sets of sound, lights, staging and even arranged the marquee. Both venues looked and sounded amazing. I have NEVER worked with such a professional company or group of people. Totally unflappable and totally professional. Thank you all so much for your efforts. You made the place look and sound SPECTACULAR”.
Sam - Founder, Music Crowns
“We worked with PSL for an artist EP launch night. We were blown away by the professionalism and diligence of this forward thinking company on a night which was very important to us. They dealt perfectly with the complexities that a new venue brings and ensured that the night was a major success. We can’t thank them enough for the role they played in what was a night to remember”.
Brandon - Star Events
“The audio and lighting package the guys put together was amazing. Without a doubt the best sound I’ve heard in nearly 50 years of doing this job”!
Ray, CEO - TalentBanq
We had the pleasure of working with PSL on a hugely challenging but highly rewarding gig. We were first into a brand new London venue, comprising three brick tunnels. A sound and light nightmare – made easy by PSL. The sound and lights were spot-on! Thank you PSL.
“We had a blast, made all the better your professional and helpful crew. We play a lot of festivals and it’s rare to get a decent sound on stage when changeovers are quick, but last night was smooth, stress-free and the sound on stage was perfect”.
Belle Roscoe - (Band)
PSL provide the very best state of the art service. They are a very professional outfit that deliver the best results every time. They work very well alongside the artist.
Funk Lab - (Band)
It was probably the best organised and equipped festival event I have played at and I will certainly be recommending you.
Mark - CEO, Cripps Barn Group
Your aftersales support has been exceptional. I’m really grateful for the way you’ve looked after the work you’ve done.
