Missel: Sound insulation - quietly assessed and properly solved

Noise insulation – calm evaluation and a realistic solution
The discussion about noise insulation in buildings is characterized by the confusion about the new DIN 4109 (07/2016) and the VDI 4100 (10/2012). Many are also unclear about the decisiveness of these norms in connection with expected noise level values. For the prevention of trouble and costs due to noisy building sounds, a reasonably executed noise insulation is the only logical consequence.
 
The bone of contention: Insufficient noise insulation causes high costs to many people.
With higher real estate prices, the expectations of buyers concerning living comfort are also increasing.
If afterwards a flat is noisier than expected and the acoustic values don’t meet the requirements, the abatement of rent by the tenant and the abatement of the purchase price by the investor of the freehold flat can occur as a result. The investor does not require an extended knowledge about noise limits for the enforceability of their demands according to the usual values.
 
Pointing the way: state-of-the-art technology (aRdT)
On the safe side, according to the actual jurisdiction, are those who standardly use state-of-the-art technology for implementing noise insulation measures. Reference points therefore are given by the sound protection degrees II and III of the VDI 410.0 under private law, as well as the recommendations of the DEGA.
Meanwhile, the DIN 4109 represents only the absolute minimum requirement under public law.
 
Currently: Which noise protection standards may construction clients expect?
The basic standards, laid down in the DIN 4109, do not correlate with the current common and expected demands for comfort and quality. Based on the actual jurisdiction, the medical findings about the health-damaging long-term effects of noise and the state-of-the-art technology, a noise level of ≤ 30 dB(A) in the external area is the minimal requirement we owe to people.
 
Effective: Small expenditure, great effect
For the design, acoustically favourable layout planning is advisable. In the realization phase, the gapless insulation with soft flexible, noise decoupled and tear-proof Missel insulation systems has proved reliable. A structure-borne sound insulation like the MSA 4 and the MSA 9 is needed for cast iron and plastic pipes, regardless of the air-sound minimising properties of the pipework. Loud impact noises at 90° pipe bends can be prevented by slower turns with 2 x 45° bends. Appropriately shaped parts and custom products for a complicated fittings geometry are available from Missel.
