Buers (AT). Type 31 and 33 Acoustic Floor Mats from Getzner have recently been granted the CE marking. The European Technical Assessment confirms that the impact noise insulating mats conform to the applicable standards of the European Union. This means the products can be used without restriction throughout the European market, including in public buildings.
The Type 31 and 33 Acoustic Floor Mats from Getzner Werkstoffe, the leading expert in the field of vibration protection, have been granted the CE marking. The European Technical Assessment (ETA) provides recognised proof of the technical requirements of a construction product. The CE marking indicates that the impact noise protection from Getzner conforms to the Construction Products Regulation of the EU member states. “The major advantage of this certification is that, following approval for Germany, the Acoustic Floor Mat is now also certified across Europe and can therefore be used in public buildings in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation. It also provides proof of conformity for customers. This means we can make the decision for construction project managers that little bit easier,” underlines Sebastian Wiederin, a product manager at Getzner.
Effective reduction of impact noise and vibrations
Nowadays, impact noise protection plays an important role in the building and construction industry. The Acoustic Floor Mat provides insulation for flooring in commercial and industrial buildings, and is also used in residential properties, especially during renovations. “Even public buildings with high acoustic demands can be decoupled using the insulating mat, as it has been shown to reduce noise levels by up to 33 decibels and provides consistently high impact noise insulation for decades,” explains Sebastian Wiederin. The mats are designed for loads of up to 5,000 kg/m2 and even when subjected to high loads such as this, exhibit very little deflection, which counteracts crack formation in the screed. By reducing disruptive impact noise, Getzner is making a valuable contribution to enhancing living and working environments.
