First AENOR certificate for Noise behavior
On date 2015-09-18 AENOR has granted to the company PLASTICOS FERRO, SL the first AENOR certificate for "Noise behavior of poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC-U) pipes and fittings for soil and waste discharge" according to the standard UNE-EN 14366 and particulars rules from RP 01.80.
This certification scheme requires that the product must be certified previously by AENOR for soil and waste discharge application. The system that has been certificated consists of PVC pipes and fittings previously certified according to the standard UNE EN 1329, including the fixing system to the building structure. Sound measurement tests were performed in the German laboratory Fraunhofer Institute for Building Physics IB, European specialist for sound tests on the pipes used for soil and waste discharge inside buildings.
Systems with noise reducing properties are increasingly demanded by architects considering the comfort advantages over conventional systems. One of the basic documents of the Technical Building Code (CTE) is "Protection against noise". The aim is to limit the risk of discomfort or illness regarding noise as consequence of the design, construction, use and maintenance. Depending on the use and type of the building recommended noise levels are indicated.
This released AENOR certification helps to locate the “Noise behavior” of each system. It is indicated at the certificates the installation sound level measured under the same conditions for each system indicated.
