Improving the environment by reducing noise
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics is promoting its Green Glue Noiseproofing System as a tool to prevent noise issues throughout the building cycle.
The company said the ability to specify the LEED-certified Green Glue Noiseproofing System at the start can prevent noise issues later in the project.
“As the number of new residential developments and renovations grows, design-build teams are increasingly being called upon to use their collaborative approach to eliminate potential problems,” said Steve Jette, marketing manager, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. “These teams are able to specify Green Glue technologies early on as a complete system to decrease noise transmission, protecting the sanctity of residences by keeping noise out. And that’s a tangible benefit that homeowners can appreciate.”
Green Glue’s Noiseproofing System consists of four components: Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound, Sealant, Joist Tape and Clips. When these technologies are incorporated systematically into a structure, they substantially reduce noise transmission between rooms, improving quality of life along with quality of the construction.
