    Building acoustics

    The main goal of architectural acoustics is to prevent sound from spreading from one room to another. By using suitable materials, we can reduce the transfer of sound in both directions, resulting in a decrease in the noise level in each room.

    The absence of good building acoustics results in noise pollution. Sounds such as traffic and machinery inside a building can negatively affect people's performance, health, and well-being.

    What is building acoustics and why is it important?

    Building acoustics is about how sound behaves within buildings, including how sound is generated, transmitted, and absorbed. It is important because it affects the quality of sound in a building, such as how well sounds are dampened or how much noise comes from outside.

    What factors influence the architectural acoustics of a building?

    Various factors influence building acoustics, including the materials used in the construction of the building, the layout of the space, and any soundproofing measures that have been taken. Even details such as the shape and size of the room can play a role in acoustics.

    What factors influence the building acoustics of a building?

    Poor building acoustics can lead to problems such as noise pollution from outside, a lack of privacy due to sound easily travelling through walls, reduced speech intelligibility in meetings or classrooms, and disruption of sleep and concentration.

    How can I improve the architectural acoustics of my building?

    There are several ways to improve the construction acoustics of a building, such as using sound-insulating materials, adjusting the layout of the space to reduce echoes, installing sound-absorbing panels and sealing sound leaks.

    A commonly used product is an acoustic cladding wall. This is an additional wall that is added to an existing wall to improve sound insulation. These walls are designed with materials that absorb or insulate sound, making them effective in reducing sound transmission from outside or between spaces. You can build a cladding wall with our Cyclin insulation panels.
