Vibration Solutions for Building Services Equipment – Vibration Sources in Building

Modern buildings are becoming ever more complex in terms of construction and equipment. Even lightweight constructions – mainly concrete and steel structures with extensive glass façades – are susceptible to vibrations. They amplify and transmit structure-borne noise from the facilities installed inside. When these devices are operational, they emit vibrations that are transferred as structure-borne noise to other parts of the building via solid objects such as loors and walls. Humans perceive this as vibration or noise. Vibration has an adverse impact on quality of work and life in places where lots of people congregate. Calling in vibration isolation specialists during the building planning phase helps to keep costs low, as much of the additional expenditure required to make subsequent improvements is no longer necessary. The result is a building that offers more tranquillity, enhanced functionality and improved wellbeing.
