Every living being is exposed to an unavoidable, multi-faceted background noise of natural and unnatural origin in its habitat.
The sensations caused by this noise range from gently soothing sounds to bothersome and even painful clamour.
Sound has a tremendous influence on our subjective feeling of wellbeing, resulting in rising expectations on the acoustically optimised design of traffic routes, public spaces and rooms in an era when more and more people live in conurbations.
Footfall and airborne noise need to be controlled; annoying sound must be abated and absorbed.
Made of fired clay, Hagemeister acoustic bricks feature specific material properties which are highly effective in abating sound and avoiding the reflection of sound waves. In accordance with Germany?s ZTV-Lsw 88 (supplementary technical directive on noise barriers), clay brick constructions are certified to reduce sound levels by as much as 10 db, depending on type.
The sound absorbent effect of Hagemeister acoustic bricks has been proven through independent sound absorption tests. By specifying Hagemeister acoustic bricks, architects and planners opt for a sophisticated, permanent, purely natural and high-quality solution which lends itself to a wide range of soundproofing applications:
- High level of sound absorption
- Natural beauty
- Variety in design
- Consistent quality
