SOUND INSULATION

In construction there are three concerns:

  • Low sound transmission in construction components
  • Low transmission between floors and walls
  • Low transmission of sound from footsteps

Perlite insulation performs in much the same manner as multiwall systems with bulk insulation to achieve reductions in sound transmission. Sound transmission from plumbing systems is also reduced when piping is surrounded by Perlite insulation within the floor.
