Outline

Wooden buildings have a lower impact on the environment. This is especially the case in the sound transfer between floors as a result from pedestrians walking on the floors above. By installing a dampening rubber on the structural framework of the floor, the Mute55 system provides superior performance in vibration absorption. It also opens up new avenues for wood-framed buildings, and has realized a floor sound insulation without altering the structural framework similar to RC structures. Buildings can also be easily renovated to install this system because the design & methods are simple.
