Our homes and buildings are increasingly equipped with complex systems that provide us with a healthy indoor climate and comfort. A disadvantage of this is that we have more sources of noise. An additional requirement, that is often requested, is that installations do not cause noise pollution. We would like to share our experiences and capabilities of sound-proofing.
It is important to mute or disconnect the noise (vibration). A major step in reducing or eliminating noises coming from an installation (heating/cooling/ventilation, etc,) is to use brackets with rubber lining. Rubber has the fine quality that it can absorb the vibrations. Less vibrations comes through the steel of the bracket to the building (walls/ceilings/floors). As a result, a large part of the sound is removed and there is no noise pollution.
In some situations, the proprietor of the building does not want the occupants or property users to suffer from the installation sound. This includes draining rainwater, indoor plumbing (toilet/bath, etc,), ventilation and expansion of pipes.
High requirements are more common in hospitals, hotels, theatres and apartment buildings. The “dis-connection” of the sound is the solution, but be aware that the weakest link will nullify the best solutions!
Walraven is happy to help apply the best sound-proofing for your project. A bracket with rubber lining is easy to use and often more than sufficient.
