SOUNDPROOFING:

THE INVISIBLE ARCHITECTURE

Soundproofing is an essential part of a building, but since its benefits can’t be seen, we sometimes forget its importance. Good building soundproofing is a priority for an increasing number of occupants. Whether in condos or offices, everyone is looking for a quiet place, even if they are located in a dense urban area.

 

Here are some of the inconvenient noises one might hear on a daily basis:

Acoustic comfort must be maintained between 35 to 40 decibels maximum. However, in our daily life, we are constantly disturbed by noises that can become true irritants in the long run.

VACUUM: 70 DECIBELS

LAWNMOWER: 90 DECIBELS

CONVERSATION: 60 DECIBELS

CRYING CHILDREN: 100 DECIBELS

TRAFFIC: 75 DECIBELS

DOG BARKING: 80 DECIBELS

The impacts of poor soundproofing

  • Difficulty to concentrate
  • Lack of privacy
  • Tensions between neighbours
  • Sleep loss
