Effective Suppression of Impact Sound
La Seine Musicale in Paris - undisturbed sound experience thanks to Sylomer®.
Elastically Separated Floor
What we refer to as impact noise is caused by the use of rooms. The sound radiates via the floor into adjacent rooms and other floors of the building, where it is perceived as a disturbing noise. For example, parquet flooring in neighbouring apartments can lead to a significant impairment of the quality of life. However, effective impact sound insulation can minimise noise propagation and significantly improve architectural acoustics without making it necessary to accept restrictions in the choice of floor covering.
A supermarket beneath offices, a doctor's surgery next to private apartments, a roof-top bar above hotel suites. Structural sound control is indispensable, especially in buildings that are used for a variety of purposes. With the right impact sound insulation, noise can be effectively avoided and the quality of life noticeably improved. This can happen in the run-up to the project if the architectural acoustics plan takes this into account. But even when renovating or refurbishing individual areas, an insulating layer in the floor can be retrofitted for increased sound control and less noise.
The product series Acoustic Floor Mat (AFM), Acoustic Floor Blocks (AFB) and the material Sylomer® offer effective insulation and customised sound control for a wide range of applications and achieve impact noise improvements of up to 38 dB.

Our Solutions for Impact Sound Insulation
Full-Surface Floating Floor
The Acoustic Floor Mat (AFM) is installed over the entire surface and is suitable for the isolation of floating screed, dry screed, and even heavy-duty screed. Five types for customized sound control: from targeted compliance with standards to the highest acoustic requirements.
Point-Bearing Floating Floor
The Acoustic Floor Blocks (AFB) also provide effective soundproofing for false floor constructions, e.g., for studios, theaters, and nightclubs. An ideal rate of impact noise reduction for professional use, especially at low frequencies.
Renovation of Hotel Alte Post
Three Steps to Success
The challenge: renovation for mixed use and new supermarket as additional source of noise
The Getzner solution: use of the AFM 33 especially for heavily-loaded floors in industry and commercial spaces
The result: optimum floor insulation with fast installation and low insertion height
„The exciting aspects of this project were the fixed parameters: old building structure, strict limit value specifications, and on-time implementation. Thanks to good planning and the early involvement of Getzner, everything proceeded without a hitch.“
