No need to be distracted by noise in the next room
Eliminating noisy disturbances from above, below and adjacent rooms
Absorbing sound converts part of the sound energy to a very small amount of heat in the absorbing material, rather than the sound being transmitted or reflected. Sound Insulation is providing the required sound transmission loss or noise reduction and it is mainly associated selection of the building elements itself, i.e. walls, windows, doors, roof, floors, etc.
There are two types of sound insulation in buildings: airborne and impact sound. Airborne sound insulation is used when sound produced directly into the air is insulated and it is determined by using the sound reduction index. Impact sound insulation is used for floating floors and it is determined by the sound pressure level in the adjacent room below. Live Acoustics has the expertise to design, review and propose noise control measures, using cutting-edge state-of-art products to various building materials. The aim of this material selection is to achieve the required reduction, by minimising the noise propagation or energy transfer path.
Minimising noise intrusion into each of the critical spaces is a vital factor to ensure that the specific rooms function satisfactorily, free from any forms of intermittent external noise interruptions and annoyance to the users. Sound insulation covers both cases of noise intrusion from external areas and noise intrusion from internally within the building from internal adjacent spaces themselves.
