Key contribution

GYPROC solutions for plasterboard and ceilings limit acoustic intrusion and sound disruptions by blocking noise from the exterior.

 

Aim

To reduce acoustic disruptions by limiting external noise intrusion.

Detailed requirement

Part 1: Sound Pressure Level

Each regularly occupied space meets the following sound pressure level as measured when the space and adjacent spaces are unoccupied, but within 1 hour of normal business hours:

  • Average sound pressure level from outside noise intrusion does not exceed 50 dBA.

Part 2: Sound Pressure Level in Residences

Each regularly occupied space meets the following sound pressure level when the space and adjacent spaces are unoccupied:

  • The sound pressure level from outside noise intrusion is less than or equal to 40 dBA based on the peak hour Leq.

Part 3: Acoustical Narrative

The project team provides a narrative describing:

  • The sources of external and internal noise considered in design.
  • The strategies undertaken to manage these sources.

Part 4: Sound Pressure Level in Schools

Each regularly occupied space meets the following sound pressure level when the space and adjacent spaces are unoccupied:

  • Spaces equal to or less than 6,000 m² [20,000 ft²]: average sound pressure level from outside noise intrusion is less than or equal to 35 dBA.
  • Spaces greater than 6,000 m³ [20,000 ft³]: average sound pressure level from outside noise intrusion is less than or equal to 40 dBA.

Our contribution

GYPROC solutions are designed to decrease unwanted noise from external sources, such as traffic or neighbors and reduce sound transmission considerably. Our sound solutions can inhibit noise disturbances from busy outdoor scenes, so that occupants can perform their tasks within a peaceful and comfortable environment.

GYPROC offers plasterboard and ceiling solutions for sound insulation and acoustic absorption. Lightweight partition and ceiling systems can be specified to improve the sound insulation between adjacent properties of different occupancies.
