Enhance and protect with superior acoustic solutions
Excessive noise is the number one source of annoyance for 76% of the world's population. It frustrates and can cause irreversible harm. Go Beyond Better to mitigate noise, improve productivity and enjoy better health in the comfort of silence.
70% of the world’s population is estimated to live in cities by 2050. This increases population density and consequently noise levels and exposure to excessive noise.
Excessive noise is the 2nd largest environmental cause of health problems, after air quality.
Noise and acoustic disturbance frustrate in the short-term and have long-term health repercussions. Excessive noise disturbs sleeps, reduces productivity, provokes changes in social behaviour and presents a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases. Also, according to the World Health Organisation, over 430 million people – or one in five people – are affected by hearing loss worldwide today. This will exacerbate over time. Over 700 million people – or one in every ten people – will suffer disabling hearing loss by 2050.
Improve work and living conditions with preventive measures like acoustic insulation.
Excessive noise is the #1 source of annoyance for 76% of the world's population.
That's frustration and potential lifestyle changes to accommodate noise.
One in five people is affected by hearing loss today.
That's 5.5% of the world's population today with inner ear damage. This will worsen to one in ten people with disabling hearing loss in 2050.
20% identify noise from areas like sanitary fittings annoy at night.
That's disturbed sleep, reduced productivity and potential health problems.
Consider acoustic insulation as early as possible for optimised design
Due to rapid development, residential zones could be located near light industrial, commercial, transportation hubs or catering establishments, with ongoing construction works and a permanent traffic flow. Quiet zones and noise corridors are essential to alleviate noise impact and exposure, and an effective noise attenuation strategy should begin as early as possible in the design stage. This is to deliver an optimised proposal that includes a combination of methods such as mechanical layout, vibration isolation and duct insulation. Also, insulation products can be layered to achieve the desired acoustic performance plus the added benefit of thermal insulation and mitigation of corrosion under insulation.
