Updated guide plates laminated plaster and mineral wool thermal and acoustic solutions

Prepared by ATEDY (section PYL) and AFELMA with the collaboration of the Institute of Sciences of construction Eduardo Torroja (CSIC) the new guide is a tool to service professionals containing more solutions and essays, and a table of recommendations to respond to every need of work or project with the right solution Technical Association and gypsum businessSection plate plaster laminate (ATEDY-PYL) and the Association of Spanish manufacturers of insulating mineral wool (AFELMA) have developed, in collaboration with the Instituto Eduardo Torroja, the guidance of constructive solutions with plate laminated plaster and Mineral Wool, which updated the building thermal and acoustic solutions catalogue edited by the same associations.

updated business guide

Divided into 11 sections, the Guide collects in 9 of them over 50 constructive solutions with the reliability and versatility of plaster plate laminate and MINERAL wool systems, a wide range of solutions that are sorted by the location of each system in the work (partition, separation elements, dry lining, risers, hollow, elevators, floors and suspended ceilings). In the classification also has has taken into account the characterization of each system and demands required in the DB-HR.

Guide devoted a whole chapter to measurements “in situ”, in an exercise in transparency that is confirm the acoustic solutions implemented for the fulfillment of the DB-HR. In this field, by way of summary, it should be noted that achieved in tested enclosures, acoustic values are equal or superior to the results provided for in the design.

The last entry in the Guide refers to technical details of execution for the resolution of systems at work, which is considered very important so they are resolved with the greatest possible rigour.

In short, this new study is based on the thorough work done by AFELMA and ATEDY-PYL, technicians with the collaboration of the Eduardo Torroja Institute, based on the experience and the numerous tests.

The end result is a rigorous service professionals work so that they can give answers to benefits that are required in the technical building code, and various regional and local regulations sometimes more demanding than the raised in the basic documents of the CTE.
