Steel structure buildings are increasing every day, which you can see almost everywhere. In recent years, with the concept of green environmental protection, noise pollution has also become the object of people’s attention. However, there is a lot of noise in the metal buildings, impacting the surrounding environment. Therefore, sound insulation in steel buildings has become the critical requirement of various industrial enterprises, and the steel structure workshop must be well soundproofed in engineering construction.
How about sound insulation in steel buildings?
How to achieve sound insulation in steel buildings? Steel building construction should consider the following aspects.
1. Foundation excavation and construction of steel structure building
Vibration isolation treatment should be taken when the foundation is excavated and constructed. First, for example, a vibration isolation ditch should be set up around the foundation. Generally, a vibration isolation ditch should be not less than the depth of 1m and the width of 0.4 m. Next, do other necessary treatments on the shock pad, and then use a steel plate to flatten the shock-absorbing ditch and the ground.
2. Enclosure for Steel structure buildings
The enclosure system of the steel structure building only needs to use single-layer or double-layer color board + thermal insulation cotton, which ensures safety, practicality, and beauty while maintaining a good sound insulation effect. In addition, its thermal insulation and cooling effects are also significantly better than concrete architecture.
3. Use soundproof windows and doors for sound insulation in steel buildings
Most disturbing sounds from outside enter the room through doors and windows. Therefore, try to use soundproof windows and doors. We usually use aluminum alloy windows and doors with double or triple insulating glass, and it is best to fill them with damping sound insulation materials. Soundproof windows and doors can effectively resist the penetration of sound waves, and the interference sound entering the room can be significantly reduced.
4. Good insulation materials for sound insulation in steel buildings
The walls and roofs can use good insulation material. Adding thermal insulation cotton on the top can keep heat and heat insulation and play the role of sound insulation and noise reduction, making the indoor warm in winter and cool in summer, saving energy, and reducing emissions!
5. Reduce the noise pollution sources
The timely replacement of the aging mechanical equipment in the steel structure workshop will naturally reduce noise pollution. Checking the faults and inappropriateness of the machine operation in time can quickly eliminate hidden dangers and maintain the machine. First, the steel structure buildings must be connected and sealed to minimize the hole between the cracks not to affect the sound insulation function. The second is to deal with the damaged protective cover and repair it to restore it to a balanced state. When installing new equipment, you need to consider the average value of the machine to reduce the friction and noise of internal equipment. Install mufflers or special sound-absorbing and sound-insulating materials inside and outside of mechanical equipment exhaust holes or exhaust pipes, or use physical principles to eliminate and reduce noise.
6. Steel structure stairs
Steel structure stairs are often used in life because they are economical and practical and have high strength, high plasticity, and convenient construction. There are many options for noise reduction methods for steel structure stairs. A suitable wood floor can be placed on the stairs, which is aesthetically pleasing and noise-reducing. A layer of perforated sound-absorbing panels can be placed on the stair treads, or a layer of sound-absorbing cotton can be installed under the treads, absorbing part of the noise. Concrete can also be cast at the stair treads to reduce noise. You can also lay a layer of carpet directly to minimize noise.
When considering the construction of steel structure buildings, the owner should consider the impact of noise and take noise reduction measures. The steel building is a green building. Therefore, taking noise reduction measures reduces the massive noise pollution to the surrounding environment and is an important measure to optimize the internal working environment of the workshop.
