Alpstadt Lifestyle Hotel exemplifies the latest modular construction methods in wood
Effective sound control with Sylodyn®
Wood is much lighter than other building materials and it therefore takes very little energy to generate vibrations. The wooden modules are particularly susceptible to vibration and the propagation of unwanted noise. Timber was chosen as a building material due to its ecological properties and the warm interior ambience it creates, and is key to the look and feel of the rooms throughout the hotel.
To prevent sound transmission between the different floors, the individual modules were bedded on Sylodyn® from Getzner.
Getzner not only provides elastic bearing for modular construction projects, but also for element and hybrid construction methods. Each timber construction is considered as a whole, and the flanking transmission of structure-borne noise is avoided to improve the acoustics. Alongside the highly effective Sylodyn® strips for the bearing of modules, achieving effective soundproofing is also a matter of choosing the right fasteners between the wall and ceiling – such as GEPI angle brackets or Sylodyn® washers. This combination enables the very best sound control results in timber construction projects.
- Highly effective sound control to create high quality living and working environments
- Allowing the special qualities of the timber construction process to be used to best effect
- Project considered as a whole with support throughout
- Innovative and durable PU materials that are maintenance-free and fully recyclable.
