soundproofing


In recent years people have acquired more knowledge regarding energy saving legislation and certification in real estate unlike that regarding noise abatement norms and certifications thus taking for granted that one should put up with a noisy next door neighbour.

 

Listen to the silence.

We have always placed great emphasis on all aspects involving noise abatement in our constructions. We are now proud to have defined a specific construction  technique named “box in box noise control” that is integrated in all our projects, granting  an excellent level of noise abatement. The “detached home effect” phrase was coined since.

'BOX IN BOX' noise control technology
What is the meaning of box in box?

  • Such technique, named “box in box”, whereby every residential unit is considered an independent cell, surrounded on each of its six sides (floor, four walls and ceiling) by supporting walls.

    Obtaining the noise abatement values between residential units, foreseen by the current legislation (Dpcm 5/12/1997) is not OUR objective but our starting point. From here stems the innovative construction technique named “BOX IN BOX”.
  • The supporting structure of the 4 walls and the suspended ceiling is fixed with anti-vibration joints.
    Second Skin
    Using high quality dry materials, a “second skin” is created and is inserted in a suspended manner not attached, but ideally suspended within the main envelope from a suspended flooring that rests on a sound proof mattress.

    Detached home effect
    This innovative technique allows for a very high sound proofing both among units on the same floor as well as units on lower and upper floors. This condition is usually unobtainable with normal techniques. We can therefore coin the phrase of a residential unit with a “Detached home effect”
1 Box in box
2 Second Skin
3 Detached home effect

By applying this technique , a drastic noise reduction in all its frequencies, for example:

  • noise from compling (heels, balls, pulled chairs, etc.)
  • airborne noise (TV or loud music, voices)
  • domestic equipment noise (water circulation, WC)

 

This means that you can live in the quietness of your home without perceiving any difference between a partying neighbour or an absent neighbour”.

Modern homes today are air tight in order to reach very high levels of energy efficiency. However this also implies very low levels of air exchange of air tight spaces. There is an insufficient exchange and a difficulty in adjusting the “degree of humidity” as well as  a presence of domestic toxic substances (detergents, cooking, polluting elements that radiate from different materials, furniture and accessories, and presence of radon gas).
