It is not surprising that one of the main considerations in choosing an apartment or property to purchase is the noise conditions in the vicinity: proximity to schools, a main road, an airport, a community center, a construction site, etc.
The Ashbond Gypsum Block serves the construction industry as a premium tool for acoustic insulation. Gypsum is a naturally porous material, and it is these pores that give it an improved acoustic value for swallowing noises.
The Ashbond partition is an excellent acoustic isolator between rooms in the same apartment, and there is no need for special application.
In order to improve the acoustic isolation between residential buildings in the same building, an ashbond partition was built, with dense rock wool or glass wool. The Ashbond partition is a solution to the standard requirements
The use of the block reduces project costs considerably and its quality as an acoustic isolator is no less than that of a regular concrete block.
Acoustic insulation with ashbond blocks
In the State of Israel there is a standard (1004 1) which determines the methods of testing and requirements for acoustic insulation between one apartment space and the space of other apartments in a residential building, and between the spaces inside the apartments and stairwells and machine rooms in a residential building.
The standard does not apply to test methods and requirements for acoustic insulation between spaces inside the apartment (ie between one living room and another), and not to acoustic isolation between the interior spaces and the exterior of the building.
The requirements of the Standard stipulate that the apartment must be at least 50 cm between the spaces of one apartment and the other residential spaces in the same building, since the standard does not define requirements for acoustic insulation between residential spaces within the same apartment, That the isolation level will be about 20 decibels.
Ashbond's gypsum block meets both standard and conventional requirements, and its insulation values are: 10-38-thick block decibels (it should be remembered that in constructing a partition, the acoustic value rises) and the integration of two partitions of 40 blocks, 10) - 2.5-54 decibels, depending on the surface conditions.
Acoustic insulation in large spacesThe gypsum board can be used as an acoustic isolator in large spaces where it is necessary to absorb echoes: lecture halls, cultural centers, malls, banquet halls, offices designed as open spaces, etc.
Studies have shown that exposure to echoes during a lecture in a study causes a feeling of fatigue among listeners, due to their effort in distinguishing between sound and echo. The same is true of jobs in which a number of people work in a large common space: the output of workers decreases drastically as they struggle to locate the sound they want between noise and other echoes - conversation with a colleague, telephone conversation, etc.
The use of the gypsum block Ashbond improves the acoustic values and provides a good response to echoes, so that you can listen freely to the lecture, work or spend time in the shopping area without suffering background noise.
