Timber Construction Sound Control

Timber construction sound control is particularly challenging field. The demand for energy-efficient, sustainable construction methods is increasing. And large, multi-storeyed wooden buildings are becoming more and more popular. Wood is increasingly being used in the renovation of old buildings as well as for remodeling and additions.


Applications in Timber Construction:
  • Elastic mounting of flanking components
  • Ceiling structures of elastic materials
  • Mounting of staircases and landings
  • Mounting of machinery and other technical building systems
  • Mounting of sanitary fixtures and suspension of pipes
Solutions are available for:
  • Stairs, floors and ceiling structures
  • Terrace floors and the junctions between walls and floors

Wood construction is gaining an increasing share in the total volume of construction. Lightweight wood construction represents an eco-friendly alternative that is cost-effective and flexible. Wood construction is one of the most natural methods of construction.

Builders, project managers, passive house builders, structural engineering firms, carpenters, architects, planners and engineers all have one thing in common: They all have to meet strict building requirements. Buildings in which people live and work must also meet unique challenges related to sound insulation. And large, multi-storeyed wooden buildings are becoming more and more popular. Wood is increasingly being used in the renovation of old buildings as well as for remodeling and additions.

Wood has a much lower mass than many other construction materials. Therefore, even small amounts of energy can cause vibrations in wood. In European countries, there are various construction standards aimed at protecting against disturbing vibrations and noise, including minimum standards that must be met for wood construction.

TVS, together with our creative partner Getzner works together with builders, project managers, passive house builders, craftsmen, planners, structural engineering firms and architects to develop efficient, tailored solutions that fulfill the highest of sound insulation requirements.

To this end, Getzner has been cooperating closely with leading wood construction companies and universities for years. Quality assurance and environmental sustainability play a decisive role in all of the company’s developments.

TVS and our partner Getzner can help you to achieve the absolute pinnacle in living and working comfort when it comes to timber construction sound control. Getzner is the first choice when it comes to efficient solutions for insulation against structure-borne noise and footfall noise. Innovative planners, architects, builders and craftsmen rely on Getzner’s creative experts. Working together, these experts constantly develop optimized solutions for sound insulation in wood construction.
