Two new supermarkets with apartments above acoustically insulated

Both new sites consisted of a supermarket with apartments above


Two supermarket chains opened new stores in Maarn and Groesbeek in October and December 2015. Both new sites consisted of a supermarket with apartments above. A schedule of requirements (SOR) establishing the perceptible level of noise in the apartments was drawn up in order to prevent any noise nuisance for residents. Our specialists were called in to help ensure that those requirements could be met.

Tackling noise

The wheels of shopping trolleys and stock trolleys, loading and unloading, the stacking of crates, etc.: these are all noises from a supermarket that can filter through into dwellings above via the floor and walls and cause a nuisance. In order to tackle that noise, reliable acoustic insulation had to be installed in the floor.

Roll 7 from Isolgomma

Loos Betonvloeren B.V. of Obdam was given the task of constructing the floor. They had already collaborated on similar projects with specialists from Imbema SMT. Based on the excellent experience gained during those projects, Loos proposed using our Roll 7 acoustic insulation from Isolgomma.

High pressure load

Our Roll 7 insulation mats are 7 mm thick, are mostly made from recycled material and are easy to work with. Roll 7 can also withstand a high pressure load which is important for floors which have to take a considerable weight, as they do in a supermarket. Loos also used EPS to thermally insulate the floor which complemented Roll 7 perfectly.
