Schallschutz und Akustik gehören vielleicht nicht zu den primären Parametern, die den Entwurf eines Gebäudes normalerweise beeinflussen. Doch spätestens wenn guy den Vortragenden im Seminarraum nicht versteht, der Geräuschpegel im Großraumbüro unerträgliche Ausmaße annimmt oder das Rumoren des Nachbars einem den Schlaf raubt, wird klar, wie wesentlich die Raumakustik zum alltäglichen Wohlbefinden beiträgt. Nicht nur Konzertsäle oder das antike Amphitheater erheben Anspruch auf akustische Qualität, sondern jedes Gebäude, sogar jeder Raum besitzt eine akustische size, die je nach Funktion in ihren individuellen Anfo

Example text

Pugging usually contributes only very little to improving the sound insulation of older suspended floors when the ceiling is rigidly fixed to the joists because most of the sound is transmitted via the joists. Which measures are feasible when refurbishing an existing building depend on many factors. 5 mm plasterboard can be suspended below the timber joists on resilient brackets or channels. The ensuing void is then packed with min. 80 mm thick mineral wool. Where it is possible to increase the depth of the floor and to add ballast, one option is to lay concrete bricks (= non-rigid ballast) below a floating screed or dry subfloor.

G. for housing LAF,max ≤ 30 dB(A). Industrial doors Industrial doors are treated in a similar way to normal doors. The sound reduction indexes to be expected in the as-built condition range from about 15 dB for rollershutter or overhead doors without special acoustic measures to Rw ≈ 45–50 dB for heavyweight sound-insulating doors. Movable room dividers Movable room dividers are available with weighted sound reduction indexes of up to about Rw,P = 55 dB. Here again, a tolerance allowance of 5 dB should be applied to obtain the value possible in the as-built condition.

Mineral-fibre insulating material to EN 13162, application type DES-sg, compressibility CP2, dynamic stiffness SD ≤ 20 MN/m3 i Structural floor Despite their low mass, cross-laminated timber or similar timber floors can be used to achieve the sound insulation requirements for housing or schools, for instance, provided suitable floating screeds are laid on the floors. In order to reduce the impact sound propagation in the vertical direction, an underlay can be placed beneath the framing to the hollow floor to dampen the structure-borne sound transmissions.
