Acoustical planning

Since the seventies and an increase of apartment buildings, noise protection in buildings became more and more important to continue to ensure comfortable living.

Cantonal institution CMN/HEG
During the planning phase of a building it is necessary to analyze the different structural elements to comply with the SIA standard 181.

This standard sets the threshold values for protection against the following types of noise:

  • airborne noise from outside,
  • airborne noise within buildings,
  • footfall noise,
  • noise of technical facilites and fixed installations in buildings.
For special types of use like classrooms or gyms some reverberation time requirements are also applied. That is how comfortable acoustics and a good speech intelligibility can be assured.
