Acousta-Wal is a performance upgrade option, which may be added to a number of structural concrete masonry units. It has a closed top and vertical slots on its face, exposing the inner cavity. Working much like an automobile muffler, the closed-end cavities of the different size units resonate to sound waves of different frequencies, converting
Concrete blocks are a cost-effective, and tried and tested means of providing load-bearing and non-load-bearing walls with many other performance and sustainability benefits. There is a well-established supply chain for concrete blocks in the UK, providing a readily-available source for construction.
Concrete masonry is a versatile, durable material for the construction of building walls that provide load-bearing strength, fire resistance, a high degree of resistance to sound
A cost effective concrete building block, close textured paint grade unit developed specifically for use in schools to meet the acoustic requirement of BB93.
In concert halls, theaters, houses of worship, rehearsal rooms, and other areas where sound quality is critical, masonry is the architect's and his client's best friend. Building in heavy masonrybrick or medium-to-normal weight grout-filled blockis the simplest and most direct path to achieving high quality acoustic performance.
on the type of block and on-site execution, precast concrete blocks can provide fire protection, thermal insulation and even sound insulation and acoustic More information solid concrete block / cellular / for walls / for partition walls SOLAR GRADE
Acoustic Properties of Precast Concrete 150 precast concrete wall as complying acoustic performance must be delivered.
Acoustic performance Good sound insulation by walls and floors is easily achieved using the inherent mass and damping qualities of concrete. The need for additional finishes is minimal, thereby reducing capital and ongoing maintenance costs.
The effect of the added gypsum board on acoustic performance is striking at high frequencies, the performance of the walls with the gypsum board is better than that of the bare block wall; at low frequencies, it is worse.
Concrete Block Walls with added gypsum board on acoustic performance is striking at high frequencies, the perform-ance of the walls with the gypsum board is
2 thermal and acoustic performance. 3 Concrete density approx 1930 kg/m3 Block density approx capacity of masonry block walls by providing additional tensile
2.4 Acoustic Performance Concrete masonry blocks possess a combination of sound absorbing qualities while the mass of a block wall guarantees good sound
