Reducing sound and noise emissions during construction
Effectively protecting people from noise.
Noise can cause stress, problems with concentration and even chronic illnesses. Sound control is therefore becoming ever-more important and has now developed into a key responsibility in the building and construction industry.
The positive effect of the sound control measures has been demonstrated by measurements taken by Getzner experts over many decades. People who live and work in well-insulated buildings are far more relaxed, attentive and demonstrably healthier than people who are plagued by noise.
Noise in buildings is produced by the stimulation of airborne or structure-borne noise, which is caused by talking, music, walking across ceilings and up and down stairs (impact noise), or by the operation of building service installations such as wastewater systems, energy supply and heating systems, ventilation and air-handling units, lifts, powered doors, etc.
The sound control solutions from Getzner have been specially designed to isolate sound sources and reduce sound transmission. Possible applications range from the elastic bearings of floors, stairs, ceilings and wall linings in buildings, to the sound insulation of building service installations.
Solutions to reduce flanking transmission are also available, as a large proportion of the noise comes from so-called flanking elements. Getzner also recommends that doors, shafts and wall and ceiling ducts are also taken into account during soundproofing projects.
