Protect people from noise with high-quality acoustic control solutions
Excessive noise is the number one source of frustration for 76 percent of the world’s population. It can also cause irreversible damage. Armacell’s technical insulation solutions enable you to take your acoustic control BEYOND BETTER to mitigate noise, improve productivity and enhance your standard of living.
Learn all about acoustic control in our whitepaper
Solving acoustic challenges requires correctly identifying the source of noise and understanding how it spreads, and the solutions available to control it. How do you isolate the different types of sound types– and how do you deal with them? Find out by reading our whitepaper.
Taking acoustic control BEYOND BETTER
Watch the video below to discover how Armacell’s technical insulation solutions go BEYOND BETTER, to deliver the ultimate in noise reduction and acoustic comfort.
Noise is the second biggest environmental contributor to health problems
Over 430 million people are affected by hearing loss today. That’s one in twenty people – and the problem will only get worse over time. By 2050, it is estimated that more than 700 million people – or one in every ten – will suffer disabling hearing loss.
The smallest detail can have significant consequences
1 in 10 people will suffer from disabling hearing loss by 2050
Exposure to loud sounds damages the inner ear structures that are vital for hearing. This damage is permanent and irreversible, but noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented, for example, through hearing conservation programmes and workplace safety measures.
Unwanted noise disturbs sleep and affects productivity
Many people find their sleep disturbed, and consequently their quality of life is affected. Studies show that 20 percent of residents are bothered by noise from sanitary fittings, especially at night, and that 30 percent agree that such noises should not be audible.
Why you should consider acoustic insulation as early as possible
Due to rapid urban and industrial development, residential zones can be located near loud areas, such as construction sites or transportation hubs. Therefore, a noise reduction strategy should always be part of any early design phase, providing an overview of the insulation solutions that are required to successfully mitigate noise disturbances.
