Growing rates of urbanisation are resulting in more new buildings springing up on plots of land that are susceptible to vibration. The vibrations frequently emanate from nearby railway lines - specifically underground railway lines, roads or adjacent industrial complexes. Unless appropriate action is taken, these buildings are defenceless against the structure-borne noise generated in their immediate environments: this can result in unwanted vibrations. Secondary airborne noise levels also rise, as the vibrations excite elements such as the walls or ceilings. External factors such as these have an unfailingly adverse effect on the living and working environment inside the building.
A structural engineer’s challenge in protecting against shocks and vibrations
This presents specialists such as structural engineers with new challenges for effective sound isolation and reduction of vibrations that cause sound and noise. An engineer's task is not only to construct a building that complies with the relevant regulatory standards, but also to meet the particular requirements of the customer.
This is precisely where Getzner comes into the picture. With over 50 years of experience our engineered sound control solutions are individually adapted to the respective requirements. So what are some ways your company in partnership with Getzner can improve vibration isolation? Getzner typically offers five appropriate applications to reduce vibrations - depending on the parameters of the site and the distance from the noise source.
Getzner offers highly effective protection against shocks and vibrations. Getzner’s solutions boost the value of buildings and land. Successful projects, including the Central & Park Panorama Towers in Munich's Arnulfpark, serve to demonstrate that even buildings constructed immediately next to busy railway lines can meet the most stringent requirements. In summary, the benefits of a Getzner vibration solution are the following:
