Have you ever come across sound proof material in Dubai and thought about why it’s required? Let us tell you why.
Sound, without any doubt, is an essential aspect of our day-to-day lives. It’s not only essential for communication, but it also has its significance in geophysics, for example, in location, signaling, and positioning. Sound waves and energy have numerous uses and applications.
Despite that, this form of energy is unwanted and becomes annoying for the ears or creates hindrances.
Like the noise coming from the traffic, the neighbors, the construction site near you, or the room next to you in your own house. These noises entering your house every day can take away the peace you expect to have at the end of the day at your house.
Therefore, there is a need to have some technique, technology, or means to reduce or block unwanted noises.
Since sound is a form of energy in waves, it can reflect, refract or maneuver around the edges. Even if the noises cannot be blocked entirely, they can always be significantly reduced. To reduce, block or eliminate sounds, you will need soundproofing materials.
However, you cannot treat sound or noise with all materials. It has to be acoustically efficient.
To treat noise at any space, you need to have certain materials with unique features. Here are a few properties that material must possess to be a fit choice for soundproofing.
Materials with the property of porosity compress, expand, or change the direction of the flow of sound waves, making them lose momentum.
For a material to be fit for soundproofing needs to have high density. The more density material has, the better! If the material density is very low, the sound waves can travel from one room to another.
Each cell of the particular material should be adequately small to qualify for soundproofing needs. It means the cell should be even smaller than the sound wave.
● Flow resistivity
Flow resistance depends on the thickness of the material. When resistance is high, there are fewer chances of transmission.
Tortuosity is the arrangement of cells in a material. It refers to various twists and turns in them. The more twists and turns the sound waves have to travel, the more momentum the sound waves lose.
