Urbanization is increasing. Consequently, new buildings located on plots of land subject to vibrations are being constructed every day. Frequently, nearby railway lines, roads or industrial complexes are some of the main sources of disturbance. Unless appropriate action is taken, such buildings are defenceless against these vibrations.
This is precisely where Getzner comes into the picture. With the sound control solutions made from Sylomer® and Sylodyn®, vibrations and secondary airborne noise – transmitted via elements such as ceilings and walls – are counteracted in a targeted manner.
Constructing a two tower high-rise complex above a train tunnel
Compliance with the required ceiling height with smaller distance between floors
Decoupling individual floors from vibrations
„The material provided met the requirements in every way, and the Getzner specialists were able to install it quickly and easily. It's just amazing: no vibrations at all can be felt inside the building.“Josef Clark, Senior Manager, general contractor Falcon Construction LCC

„Installing Sylomer® mats reduces vibration and noise levels. The material has been employed successfully for decades – Getzner has demonstrated this on numerous occasions in the rail sector. Another important criterion for future-oriented urban planning is that the material should be easy and quick to install.““TORU TSUCHIHASHI, DEPUTY GENERAL MANAGER, MORI BUILDING
