Sound absorbers in thermoactive prefabricated concrete ceilings

BASF SE, 67056 Ludwigshafen, Germany


When a thermoactive element is incorporated into a concrete ceiling, this is offset by part of the building itself to regulate heat. This tech- nology produces extremely energy-efficient cooling and heating in modern buildings that in some cases can make them eligible for passive house certification. Typically, though, the drawback is that the sound-reflecting surfaces of a concrete ceiling mean poorer room acoustics due to longer reverberation times. When acoustic absorbers are subsequently fitted for sound insulation, however, they often have an adverse effect on the convection of air needed, which then considerably reduces the efficiency of the cooling and heating capacity.
