Focus on noise protection using vibration isolation
Buers (AT), Munich (DE) – As the leading specialist in the field of vibration isolation and protection, Getzner Werkstoffe will be presenting innovative solutions for noise protection at the BAU 2019 trade fair. BAU is the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, and will be held in Munich from 14-19 January 2019. Visitors to the 70 m2 Getzner stand – B6.430 – will be able to discover the wide range of applications and effectiveness of the tried-and-tested polyurethane materials Sylomer® and Sylodyn®.
Getzner has set itself the task of improving conditions on construction sites with vibration-prone subsoil through the use of its proprietary sound control solutions made from polyurethane (PU). The company can draw on nearly 50 years of experience in this field. The high-tech materials Sylomer® and Sylodyn® have been approved for use by the relevant building technology bodies and ensure peace and harmony reign inside buildings – a fact that increases the property’s value and has already been proven in several projects around the world. These include the floor and wall elements of the penthouse apartment of the Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, which have been decoupled using elastic bearings made of Sylomer®. This solution provides for optimal sound control and the highest living standards. A PU solution from Getzner can also be found in the Jinmao Palace luxury complex in the heart of Beijing, consisting of seven high-rise apartment blocks. The discerning residents of the well-appointed apartments are effectively cocooned against vibrations from the adjacent traffic arteries and railway lines.
Experience vibration protection
This “Getzner effect” will be demonstrated on the stand at BAU 2019 with many other examples. The range of applications may be broad – from a city-centre hotel looking to keep out heavy traffic noise to a school located right next to a power plant – but the bespoke solutions from Getzner make sure that buildings are decoupled effectively and unwanted vibrations and noise are kept at bay. Visitors to the Getzner stand will be able to experience this principle for themselves: “Visitors can trigger vibrations using buzzers and see for themselves how effectively our sophisticated vibration solutions work,” says Sebastian Wiederin, a product manager at Getzner.
Getzner vibration protection experts will be on hand to answer specific questions and provide technical details on the possible uses. In addition to its decades of experience in the industry, Getzner also sees the development of individual solutions together with the customer as a key success factor. “We are happy to help customers find the optimum solution for the challenge they face,” emphasises Sebastian Wiederin. “Whether it is a bedding solution for entire structures or the elastic decoupling of floor, wall and ceiling elements or other structural features, such as stairs or landings.”
