discrete bearings for efficient impact noise insulation
Buers, Austria. Getzner Werkstoffe is expanding its range of products for reducing disruptive noise in the home and workplace. Floor Blocks are discrete bearings based on the tried-and-tested Sylomer® material that have been proven to reduce impact noise in false floors by 31dB.
The innovative Floor Blocks from Getzner are used for impact noise protection in commercial, industrial and residential buildings. Specific areas of application include cinemas, studios, nightclubs, theatres, gyms and bowling alleys, as well as flats and offices. “When people are using buildings for different purposes, this often generates disruptive noise that propagates from one room to another. The impact noise insulating Floor Blocks, available in custom designs and dimensions, provide a solution for false floor constructions. They ensure a peaceful environment in buildings, improving the quality of living and working conditions,” explains Sebastian Wiederin, Product Manager at Getzner. The impact noise reduction rate of 31 dB in accordance with EN ISO 717-2 is confirmed by independent testing institutes. The Floor Blocks are used under both dry and wet screeds. “These discrete bearings are made of a durable material. External tests prove that our materials demonstrate virtually the same properties even after thirty years,” summarises Sebastian Wiederin.
Getzner solutions based on the materials Sylodyn® and Sylomer® are in use around the world. “Floor Blocks make a significant contribution to improving the quality of working and living conditions in various buildings and are suitable for use in new buildings as well as for retrofitting in renovation projects. The blocks are handy and easy to transport and install. Floor Blocks impress with their long-term effectiveness and durability,” explains Sebastian Wiederin. A further advantage is that the false floor construction with an installation height of 50 mm to 500 mm can be used as an additional installation level.
