Impact noise is a type of structure-borne noise that may be caused, for example, by a person walking across a floor or down a stairs.
If high-quality impact sound insulation such as VIBRAX-DAMP 17/8 is not provided, the resulting vibrations can cause disturbances in neighbouring or connecting areas.
Impact sound insulation and impact noise reduction are thus an important part of the construction industry.
Effective impact sound insulation can be achieved by the use of high-quality impact noise insulation products from the VIBRAX range, such as VIBRAX-DAMP 17/8.
VIBRAX-DAMP 17/8 is a profiled mat product that is manufactured from recycled granulated/fibrous rubber material, for impact noise insulation and structure-borne noise isolation under floating sub-floors or load-distributing slabs.
In contrast to impact noise insulation directly beneath the floor surfacing, this enables disturbing impact noise to be already combatted between structural slab and sub-floor.
VIBRAX-DAMP 17/8 is building authority-approved in Switzerland, Germany and other countries , and offers very high compression strength and excellent noise protection, even at low thicknesses.
It has particularly proven its worth in the construction of mixed-purpose buildings, supermarkets and storage halls, as bearing support for load distributing slabs and sub-floors, and on timber structures.
VIBRAX-DAMP – Impact/footfall noise reduction beneath floating subfloors: up to 30 dB for single-layer, up to 32 dB for two-layer
