Soundlag acoustic pipe wrap from Pyrotek Noise Control was specified to resolve a noise problem in the bathroom of a Taipei City resident.
The stock analyst was being disturbed by bathroom noise, emanating from a waste pipe that bellowed nearly 61.0 dBA with every flush. The 60+ dBA noise level was equivalent to the sound of an operating washing machine or a busy office. The noise in his master bedroom had a reading of 52.5 dBA, which also caused sleep interruption.
Pyrotek Noise Control in Taiwan assessed the situation and found a large, unlagged wall cavity waste pipe with an elbow bend that was producing excessive amounts of unwanted noise. Soundlag 4525C acoustic pipe wrap was specified and installed to solve the problem.
Fresh readings taken from the location saw the bathroom noise levels decrease from 60.8 to 52.5 dBA, equivalent to the sound of a refrigerator and an improvement of 8.3 dBA. This particular installation was so successful it was featured in Taiwan’s Acoustic and Vibration Conference.
No longer sleep deprived, the owner commended Pyrotek on the smooth process of testing, diagnosis and installation.
Guaranteed for ten years, Pyrotek’s Soundlag acoustic pipe wraps are a highly cost-effective way to solve pipe noise problems and meet building regulations. Installation is as simple as cutting, wrapping and taping the product.
Soundlag’s mass-loaded barrier deflects noise back to the source, while its acoustic foam layer separates the barrier from the source. Its aluminium foil facing makes it flexible yet sturdy and flame-resistant.
Pipe lagging is a fundamental noise abatement technique and recommended for private homes as well as high- and medium-density residential complexes where it is increasingly becoming mandatory.
