Irritation by noise is a classical reason for disputes between neighbours. Despite this, in the event of a need for rehabilitation, this does not mean that a new concrete ceiling needs to be installed.
It’s the mass that does it: A Timber-Concrete Composite system provides effective sound attenuation
In multi-storey buildings, the room ceiling is the most obvious transmitter of noise from a variety of sources. One long-term solution is Timber-Concrete Composite, because this increases the mass of the ceiling supporting structure.
When refurbishing old timber-beamed ceilings, it becomes necessary to improve sound attenuation (impact sound and airborne sound) in such a way that the values specified for the ceilings of dwelling houses are achieved. A plethora of sound measurements performed on projects both before, during and after completion of the construction work show the significant improvement potential of the Elascon composite system.
Prediction of results based on earlier measurements
We have used our substantial collection of measurements we have performed to develop an empirical forecasting model. This allows us to support you at an early stage in the planning process in a way that you will find affordable. We can therefore make sure at an early stage that the sound insulation provided by the refurbished timber-beamed ceiling meets your requirement and can be achieved.
