Acoustic specialists refer to “impact sound“, any continuous annoyance caused on the floor (noise from heels, furniture being moved, children playing, etc.) which may generate noise that becomes unbearable for people in the surrounding area. Our DIGISOL range of under screed and under floating floor acoustic insulators provides effective acoustic insulation between two floors and therefore solves these problems.
When a sound wave, which is multi-directional by nature, touches any object (floor, wall, chair, human being), one part crosses the object, one part is returned by the object and one part is absorbed by the object.
DIGISOL is the response to new standards which seek to reduce noise annoyance. DIGITEX’s DIGISOL products insulate and reduce the part of the sound wave which passes through the floor and annoys the occupants (transmitted intensity).
DIGISOL products are certified by the CSTB and characterised by the very high performance ΔLw acoustic insulation index expressed in decibels (dB). This has been measured in a laboratory, under standard conditions, to enable comparisons (report on request).
