Nuevas funcionalidades acústicas

“We are experts in the acoustic evaluation of systems and in the evaluation of other types of functionalities and performance: optical, mechanical, fire, etc.”

We helped ISINAC evaluate a patent for sun protection solutions, applied to a sunshade

ISINAC, a company that develops innovative products for acoustic conditioning, relies on TECNALIA to carry out acoustic and fire tests to facilitate the marketing of its products.

Sunshade systems are primarily designed to provide protection from the sun. However, these systems can be used to provide additional functionalities. This is the case of the ABSORBRELLA sunshade developed by ISINAC and designed to integrate features to improve the acoustic comfort of spaces.

Noise, leisure and acoustic comfort

Ambient noise generated on the terraces of bars, restaurants and meeting areas can affect the acoustic comfort of the environment and nearby buildings. Finding solutions to help mitigate the noise emissions produced by this type of activity contributes to the development of more sustainable urban environments and more comfortable buildings.

When these activities take place inside buildings (leisure centres, atriums, department stores), the use of products that contribute to their acoustic conditioning is of vital importance so that noise levels are not amplified and conversations are intelligible.

Testing of acoustic functionalities

The LCCE-GV acoustics laboratory run by TECNALIA has the technical and human capacities necessary for the evaluation of the acoustic functionalities integrated in innovative products.
