Quick Install Sound Insulation Test Aperture
In this Blog, we present Ventac’s newly upgraded Sound Insulation Test Aperture which is a simple, quick, and easy-to-use system for indicative Sound Insulation and Reverberation tests.
This system employs an ancillary steel frame, together with clamps, which compresses the edges of a test sample onto the clamping surface of the test aperture, distributing an even pressure-seal around the clamped edges in the process as shown in figure 1.
Figure 1 illustrates a test sample securely clamped in place for a sound source-receiver insulation test. It is imperative to note that this aperture test system allows for the prompt and efficient installation and de-installation of a variety of test specimens including flexible and rigid components. Its usage flexibility also gives an allowance for the testing of a vast range of simple and complex structural components. These components range from basic 950mm x 950mm single-squared samples to multi-component structures like ply/metal sheet coupled frames, and complex beam-coupled structural components, at varying depths and thicknesses of up to 150mm.
The ease of sample installation and efficacy in the elimination of noise flanking around the sealed edges, which mainly characterises this system, allows it to be used in test experiments where repeatability and experimental integrity are key. Due to the relatively small sample size requirement, typical test applications for this system include, but are not limited to, the research and development of vehicle components, building & industrial components, as well as scaled-prototype laboratory testings for the building, construction, and automobile industries.
At Ventac, we carry out standardised testing, product development testing and problem-solving testing. We are very flexible in our approach to testing and are happy to develop and adapt test set ups to meet our customers’ needs.
Typical tests conducted include:
- Sound transmission loss
- Impact sound
- Sound absorption
- Noise source/path investigations
- Rainfall noise on building elements
- Indicative testing
- Noise reduction projects
- Sound power level
- Sound intensity
- Field tests
Ventac Laboratories has been in operation since 1995. Through supporting the R&D of our customers’ products and our own noise reduction projects, we have developed broad acoustic expertise, technical capabilities and an innovative problem-solving ability. We take pride in sharing our expertise with our customers to help them understand the acoustic performance of their product and discuss potential design options.
