Sylomer Open Cell Acoustic Foam
Description

Sylomer is an open cell acoustic foam, available in a range of acoustically ‘tuned’ densities. It can be used to reduce impact noise and also to acoustically separate plant and equipment and floor panels with special requirements or very high traffic loads, for instance warehouses or factory halls, where the noise source is often forklift traffic or the operation of machines. It can further also be used to acoustically separate floor panels of recording studios, cinemas and event halls.

Key Features
  • The bearing can be applied in sheets, strips or at individual bearing points
  • Can also be used to acoustically separate floor panels with special requirements or very high traffic loads
  • The installation can be full-surface, on bearing strips or individual bearing points depending on the design
  • Sylomer bearings remain effective without limitations even if they are installed completely enclosed
  • Areas not occupied by the bearing can be filled up with a soft, non-supporting material - this significantly reduces the risk of sound bridges
  • Short-term load peaks are easily accepted by Sylomer
Scope of Use

In addition to the measures for impact noise (foot fall) insulation, Sylomer can also be used to acoustically separate floor panels with special requirements or very high traffic loads, for instance warehouses or factory halls. The noise source is often forklift traffic or the operation of machines.

The floor panels of recording studios, cinemas and event halls are also often separated, which makes Sylomer ideal for these areas as well.

As with bearings for stairs and landings, Sylomer R 12 is suitable for separation of the side joints in all structures.

Limitations on Use

The basis for the dimensioning of the bearing is generally the permissible rate of deflection when walked on.

The Sylomer type and bearing surface should be selected such that the rate of deflection when walked on does not exceed the permissible value.

The floor must be completely separated from the bordering structures. Sound bridges should be absolutely avoided.

The increased requirements as per DIN 4109 Addendum 2 are safely fulfilled under typical installation conditions with a bearing thickness of 12 mm.

In-Service History

Bearings of Sylomer have proven themselves for decades. With correct dimensioning, no dynamic stiffening of the bearing takes place. The effectiveness of the measure is therefore maintained even after decades.
