One in five people in Europe suffer from noise levels that are a major health threat, according to The World Health Organisation (WHO).
And it is a situation that is getting worse. As the urban density of cities increases, noise pollution is becoming more intense with a huge negative impact on productivity, performance and social behaviour.
So what can we do? As it is not always possible to stop noise at source, the most effective solution is to insulate and Knauf Insulation offers a wide range of highly effective acoustic insulation products and solutions for use in new build separating walls, partitions, and floors, as well as for the upgrade of existing buildings to provide improved sound insulation and acoustic comfort. They also provide excellent thermal performance.
Our Glass Mineral Wool is lightweight, easily installed and provides outstanding thermal insulation as well as exceptional acoustic performance.
Another solution could be our Heraklith Wood Wool systems that offer an ideal acoustic solution for applications such as garages, ceilings, external walls, loft floors or pitched roofs.
Finally, our Green Roof System, Urbanscape® not only dramatically reduces noise pollution through excellent external sound absorption properties but also provides excellent climate-friendly thermal insulation.
