Sound-proofing is becoming a more important consideration in construction projects. With the increase in buildings constructed in close proximity to others, often with complex systems to provide us with a healthy indoor climate (such as heating/cooling/ventilation etc), the sources of noise need to be taken into consideration and addressed.
It is important to mute or disconnect the noise and vibration from the building structure. A simple way to reduce or eliminate noise from heating, cooling or ventilation pipework is to use pipe clamps with rubber lining. Rubber has the useful quality of being able to absorb vibrations, therefore, less vibration travels through the bracket into the building, removing a significant amount of the sound.
In certain buildings, for example, hospitals, hotels, theatres and large apartment buildings, there may be more specific noise-reduction requirements. This could include requirements to reduce noise from plant rooms, waste water pipes or pipe expansion.
The “dis-connection” of the sound or vibration is the solution. Walraven have a range of acoustic supports for each of these instances from pipe fixing points to spring and rubber mounts and our unique Bismat® 1000 for waste water pipes which has superior noise insulating properties than alternatives on the market. Our Bismat® 1000 Stand Pipe Clamp offers unrivalled low residue sound insulation exceeding the requirements of DIN 4109. Tested and documented by The Fraunhofer Institute.
