WAVIN LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE NOISE REDUCTION SYSTEM IDEAL FOR MULTI-OCCUPANCY BUILDINGS
A new innovative wastewater system designed to outperform all other systems on the market in terms of reducing noise levels has been launched by Wavin.
Wavin AS+ is the ideal solution for tackling noise pollution in multi-occupancy developments, such as apartments, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries and offices. It is manufactured using mineral reinforced polypropylene material which prevents noise from escaping.
“The high-quality nature of the material and specially developed sound-absorbing brackets are perfect for small and large installations. This premium low-noise drainage system ticks all the boxes of noise reduction and cost-effectiveness and is designed to benefit specifiers, installers and occupants,’ said John McPeake, Technical Sales Manager at Wavin Ireland.
A very important consideration when specifying products and materials for homes and particularly for multi-occupancy properties is awareness that noise pollution can significantly impact the comfort and wellbeing of building occupants. A physical piping system along with the bracketing system can have a major influence on the noise levels generated from wastewater discharges. The new innovative Wavin AS+ and bracket system along with its SoundCheck tool provides a comprehensive solution for controlling noise levels. It offers some of the most impressive reductions in wastewater noise available in the market and with the Wavin AS+ bracketing system, a Db rating of less than 10Db can be achieved (Fraunhofer Institute of Building Physics test report 2019).
Combining Wavin AS+ with a considered approach to the layout of the whole system, means that specifiers can effectively minimise the discharge noise from wastewater creating a more relaxing, productive environment for all occupants. For installers the Push-Fit system for quick and easy installation makes it more efficient than cast iron systems and using the Wavin AS+ system will ensure that projects are able to meet current and future acoustic regulations from the outset.
Wavin also provides the support to accurately predict the noise levels of any soil and waste installation with the Wavin SoundCheck Tool. This tool has been developed by a specialist acoustic engineering company and measures more than ten variables, covering both airborne and structure-borne sound.The Wavin BIM Revit package for Wavin AS+ (FREE download) with integrated intelligence facilitates fast and efficient design, providing 100% accurate representation of the way the piping system will actually be installed along with a fully integrated bill of materials for accurate costing and minimising wastage.
