1. Planning floor plans for favorable acoustic performance and avoiding fastening piping, sanitary fixtures and units on partitions to quiet living spaces.
2. Rigid connections to floors, walls and ceilings should only be made with appropriate vibration absorbing elements in place.
3. Using low-noise fittings: Identification with noise class I (DIN 52218).
4. Dimensioning pipes sizes correctly to avoid high flow velocities.
5. Installing pressure regulators is useful for high line pressures (> 5 bar).
6. Correctly dimensioning and venting waste water lines to prevent gurgling noises.
7. And avoiding freely routed waste water lines in vulnerable areas.
8. Lining shafts with mineral wool (min. 30 mm) and sealing installation shafts to avoid joints.
9. Avoiding 90 ° bends in downspouts, and avoiding locating pipe clamps in collision zones where possible.
10. Always fastening ventilation units, pumps and refrigeration systems to ensure vibration absorption.
Precise planning and the use of certified soundproofing solutions reduce sound transmission and provide reliable protection against subsequent complaints and lawsuits. After all, complaints relating to annoying noise often prove to be particularly expensive defects of the building; and they could be avoided by the use of proper soundproofing products at the planning stage. Soundproofing elements by MÜPRO decouple the potential sources of noise
and noise-conducting pipes from the building shell. Noise bridges are prevented and the transmission of annoying noise is directly prevented.
