Decoupling of lift systems to reduce noise
Elastic bearings from Getzner have an exceptional effect when used in lift systems: they reduce the structure-borne noise caused by lifts so that it cannot propagate to the rest of the building. When passenger or goods lifts are in operation they cause vibrations that – without any professional vibration protection – are transferred to the structure of the building and perceived as an irritating rumbling noise. This can even affect the value of a building. It is therefore recommended that appropriate decoupling measures are considered right from the start, during the planning stage.
Getzner offers specially designed elements for lift systems with various installation heights and load ranges. The bearing of the drive and cables in particular using Sylomer® and double elastic Isotop® SE-DE elements can achieve effective decoupling and noise-reduction results. Other plus points of the proven decoupling bearings from Getzner are that they are maintenance-free and still display consistent elastic properties after decades.
Getzner’s solutions for lift systems audibly reduce noise and vibrations in buildings, thereby improving the quality of living and working conditions.
