Noise insulation: no forgetting the central vacuum system

Design and choice of materials to eliminate the most annoying noises

Design and choice of materials to eliminate the most annoying noises

Sound insulation, which aims to limit the transfer of sound waves into rooms, is important to ensure interior comfort. Just as with thermal insulation, the design of sound insulation and the choice of materials are crucial for an effective result. There are many noises that can disturb our peace of mind, and sound insulation is necessary to reduce discomfort from unwanted noises and sounds in home and work environments.

As a general rule, it is always a good idea to include a layer of acoustic insulation in the case of new construction, considering that, if made with the right material, thermal insulation can fulfil both functions.

Insulation should be provided at structures bordering on the outside, as well as at partitions and internal floors. A necessary precaution to protect the building from external noise, but also from the passage of sound between different flats or between rooms used for different functions.

With proper acoustic insulation, therefore, you can say goodbye to traffic noise, noisy neighbours, trampling from upper floors, but also to noise caused by installations.

Wall sound insulation

Insulating walls means ensuring that noise does not propagate through them. In the case of interior partition walls, the purpose of soundproofing is to prevent noise from spreading to other rooms, and the most common solution is to insert special sound-absorbing or sound-insulating panels in the cavities, so that the noise is absorbed and does not reach neighbouring rooms.

This type of intervention is non-invasive, guarantees the soundproofing of the walls and is very often combined with the installation of plasterboard counter walls, which are useful for creating the space needed to house the insulation. In the case of perimeter walls, on the other hand, it is important to choose the right thermal insulation when deciding to install a coat, as it will perform the dual function of thermal and acoustic insulation.

In the case of new construction, the use of sound-absorbing masonry blocks helps to meet the necessary requirements for both acoustic and thermal insulation.

When it comes to acoustic insulation, the central vacuum system is the No. 1 ally because it allows you to clean without the noise typical of traditional vacuum cleaners. In particular, the Wolly 2 built-in central vacuum unit is the answer to the needs of those who want to live in a healthy, clean environment without sacrificing acoustic comfort, for which they invested when building or renovating their home.

Adaptable by nature, Wolly 2 is so flexible that it will fit anywhere. It can be installed flush or fixed against the wall thanks to its depth of only 18.7 cm. Both solutions guarantee reversible (right/left) pipe connections, even if disjointed, and direct air exhaust, thanks to the slots along the perimeter of the closing doors, or ducted with an expulsion pipe.

Compatible with stringent energy certifications, the Wolly 2 central unit body is clad with a high-density polystyrene shell that acts as thermal insulation, soundproofing barrier and vibration-damping support. Thanks to it, thermal dispersion due to the recessed installation of the power plant is minimal. Wolly 2 is certified by the Giordano Institute for thermal transmittance 'U' and sound emission.
