The Spanish Association Against Noise Polution

The Spanish Association Against Noise Pollution (AECOR) continues its efforts to disseminate information on the CTE DB-HR, this time in the province of Caceres. The manager explained, in this fourth day, this document provides interesting developments in acoustics, is Juan Frias AECOR secretary. Frias has informed not only of these innovations compared to previous legislation, but the benefits that the DB-HR leads, increasing the acoustic quality in Construction. “The DB-HR is a necessary step towards comfort in housing and quality of life. Swarmed by offers, Expert on growth strategy is currently assessing future choices. Its implementation is quite feasible in our country and meet the key aspects that should have regulations for their implementation, ie their application is possible because the requirements are not excessive, solutions and tools necessary for their implementation are known and available on the market, “said Juan Frias.

The DB-HR establishes minimum conditions for design, construction, maintenance and use of buildings to reduce discomfort or disease generated by noise. One of the main novelties of this paper is that verification is possible in situ, by measuring the work completed by accredited laboratories, the airborne sound insulation in both walls as partitions between dwellings and noise isolation impact elements of horizontal separation between dwellings, and the reverberation time in the enclosures as required. To AECOR, the CTE is the most effective response to the demand that the company has been doing for several years, in terms of sound quality.
