Sound insulation concept

In the current, very fast moving, society, people wish for more calm and relaxation. To be able to relax, they need a quiet home. Thus also higher requirements are necessary on sound insulation at home, but also at the workplace.

In order to meet the increasing demands Pitzl Metallbau works steadily on new and innovative solutions. In close cooperation with Getzner Materials GmbH Pitzl Metallbau GmbH & Co. KG developed a comprehensive sound insulation - concept.

Together with the company Getzner Werkstoffe GmbH and the timber engineering unit of the University Innsbruck, Pitzl Metallbau GmbH & Co. KG has developed a powerful perfectly sound-decoupled angle bracket for CLT constructions.

The so called „GePi-Winkel“, which was created as part of this cooperation, has a much higher load-bearing capacity than comparable concepts on the market. On the basis of test results the TVFA-Innsbruck confirms characteristic loads up to 60 kN for the GePi 240. An additional advantage of this system is the energy dissipation without any breakage in the earthquake case. Cyclic stresses impressively confirm the efficiency due to acting dynamic loads of the revolutionary GePi-concept.
