In winter, you obviously want to come home to a comfortably warm house and … on a hot summer’s day not melt in the bedroom. How do you achieve this? Through the effective thermal insulation of your home. But at least as important for your quality of life is the acoustic performance of the insulation material. In this article you will read how to combine the best of those two worlds.
THE IMPORTANCE OF ACOUSTIC INSULATION
The effects of noise should not be underestimated. A recent German study showed that daily exposure to excessive noise, for instance caused by traffic, will negatively affect the cardiovascular system. The scientists proved that both high and low tones cause stress.
In addition, it is of course also extremely disrupting when you can hear what your neighbours are arguing about, or everything that passes by your window. Silence is an important condition for your daily comfort.
THERMAL INSULATION FOR ALL APPLICATIONS
In the SOPREMA range, you will find various insulation solutions that excel most of all in the field of thermal insulation. Efisarking, for instance, is used for the thermal insulation of slanting roofs and facades. Sopratherm Alu, on the other hand, is perfect as cavity wall insulation and for the insulation of floors.
THERMAL AND ACOUSTIC INSULATION CONTAINING WOOD FIBRES
If the acoustic insulation value is also an important factor for your application, then you might consider other products from the SOPREMA range. Take, for instance, Pavaflex Plus, a natural insulation material made from wood fibres. This product not only has the best insulation value on the natural insulation market, but also offers a lasting solution that protects against noise.
ENJOY THE TRANQUILLITY PROVIDED BY SPECIALISED INSULATION MATERIALS
If acoustic insulation is your project’s top priority, it is in your best interest to focus on the noise reduction in decibels.
TECSOUND, for instance, is applied in the acoustic insulation of light-weight roofs. It has a muffling effect on airborne noise – think street noise or airplanes – and on impact noise such as rain, …
Pavacoustic on the other hand are sound-reducing insulation panels made from wood fibres.
And finally, you can also choose a combination of materials. For an optimum result, you can, for instance, combine TECSOUND, an acoustic membrane, with PIR insulation.
