Abstract

Improvement of sound insulation – Old housing

In connection with renovation or rebuilding of old housing in Denmark, improved sound insulation should be included as an objective. Projects concerning the possibilities of complying with sound class C in the Danish classification scheme DS 490:2007 [1] have been carried out [2]
The projects focused on old apartment buildings with typical Danish timber floor constructions. For these floor constructions an improvement of approx. 5 dB for the airborne sound insulation and 10 - 15 dB for the impact sound insulation is normally required. Different solutions have been tested in the laboratory as well as in the field during renovation of a block of flats in Copenhagen.
Information about the projects and results are given on www.ejendomsviden.dk/nabostoj
