Wavetech Acoustic &
Thermal Solutions

Challenges

Events at your venue will create serious noise levels that can travel to nearby residents, which could lead ongoing complaints.

Solutions

Our louvre treatment acts an effective noise barrier that will reduce excessive upward noise leaving your venue.

Results

Skymax delivered a substantial reduction of upward noise loss from Robin Hood Hotel, Randwick, NSW.

Wavetech Acoustic Solutions is one of the most advanced & functional noise barrier systems available.

Wavetech is a high-performance, flexible mass-loaded inserted vinyl noise barrier, that offers superior acoustic transmission loss.

By utilising our in-house engineering services and the expertise from our industry partners we are able to produce customised soundproofing plans to meet your unique noise reduction needs.

Designed to meet market requirements Wavetech has effectively been installed to reduce noise and improve thermal performance on many high-end commercial, hospitality & residential projects throughout Australia.

skymax Wavetech Blade model

Wavetech incorporates a high-performance noise barrier composite within each Louvre.

Dual wall louvre design incorporating the exclusive Wavetech composite targets a wide range of frequencies.

Infused Foam-seal within the Veiwtech louvre system ensures maximum sound reduction is continually achieved.

Wavetech Acoustic Solutions
Technical Benefits

Wavetech’s Acoustic & thermal performance is achieved by inserting the mass barrier between the two walls of the Skymax Aerotech louvre blade or an alternate Skymax application.

It keeps the noise barrier separate from the structure that it is bonded to, allowing for flexibility to reflect and absorb the transmission of sound.

Tests have revealed that increasing the thickness of the foam insertion within the louvre will improve the product’s performance in some frequencies without affecting the overall weight and performance of the system.

skymax a weighting

A-Weighting

The A-weighting curve is widely adopted for environmental noise measurement and is standard in most sound level meters. This curve shows that sounds at 50 Hz would have to be amplified by 30 dB to be perceived as equally as loud as a sound at 1000 Hz at normal sound levels.

skymax sound power

Sound Power

A sound source radiates power and this results in sound pressure. Sound power is the cause. Sound pressure is the effect. The relationship between sound power and sound pressure is very similar. What we hear is sound pressure, but it is caused by the sound power emitted from the original source.

skymax outside noise

Noise Outside

Outdoors, sound waves travel in a continuously expanding spherical wavefront from the source. For a point source that emits a certain sound energy, this energy is concentrated in a single point at the source. At a distance from the source, the same energy is distributed over a sphere. The greater the distance from the source, the larger the surface over which the energy ends up being dispersed.

skymax adding noise sources

Adding Noise

When adding two sound sources together the total sound level does not double, this is because decibels are expressed in logarithmic values so simple addition and subtraction cannot be used. Perceived loudness is typically a subjective term describing the strength of the ear’s perception of a sound. A widely used ‘rule of thumb’ for the loudness of a particular sound is that the sound must be increased in intensity by a factor of ten for the sound to be perceived as twice as loud.

skymax source noise receiver

Sound Transmission

Ideally, this is the area that should be considered for treatment first when trying to control a noise problem. The Transmission path is the most variable of the three areas, as noise can travel through air or through structural vibration. Vibration is transmitted structurally through a building causing walls in other areas to vibrate and radiate noise. Treatment of the transmission path reduces the noise reaching the receiver. While the Receiver of noise may be a person or room or even a whole community in the case of aircraft noise. In some cases treating the receiver may be the only noise control option, but it is by far the most complex & expensive.
