Web portal: The A to Z of impact sound insulation

A sophisticated sound insulation system installed in buildings protects the health of their users whilst being an important quality feature of apartments. Staircases of multi-story residential buildings are particularly prone to generating noise that creates a nuisance for tenants due to poor impact sound insulation. Schöck has just launched its impact sound insulation portal as a new service to provide a comprehensive overview of legal requirements, verification methods and designs that ensure effective impact sound insulation of stairs. Designers find plenty of information on-line about the factors to consider when designing staircases and to ensure compliance with the specified quality standard. The portal refers to the fundamentals of building insulation in great detail but also contains additional information, including codes and standards, a glossary, and various solutions that use impact sound insulation systems.

The information provided on this portal is being constantly checked and updated by Schöck experts in the field of building insulation. Designers can sign up to a newsletter to be in­formed of new solutions in a timely manner.
