Mechanical vibrations, as well as shocks and structure-borne noise, are among the biggest problems for comfort on board, both in yachts and passenger ships.
The wide range of anti-vibration systems offered by Pantecnica® for the nautical sector, also certified in the tear-proof version, can satisfy every application requirement to improve comfort on board.
On-board vibro-acoustic comfort: the problem
In order to achieve this ambitious objective, it is necessary to isolate and dampen the vibrations and noises originated by on-board operating auxiliary machinery, such as:
- Structure-borne noise: any vibrating device transmits mechanical energy to every structure to which it is connected;
- Airborn noise which propagates to adjacent rooms.
On-board vibro-acoustic comfort: solutions
The decoupling of the inner hull from the outer one is an important issue for yacht builders. Pantecnica® Box-in-Box systems significantly reduce vibrations and absorb structural airborne noise: the floor and sides of the hull are suspended with vibration-damping PU strips, which isolate the inner hull from the outer one.
POWER DEVICE SUSPENSION
Vibration isolation of on-board power supplies is a must to reduce wave propagation and increase comfort. Whenever, in addition to mechanical vibrations, you want to reduce the associated structural noise, a high-damping isolator is recommended.
CEILING-FITTING FAN SUSPENSION
Fans, extractors and ventilation units can be very unpleasant when you are moored in a bay or harbour. Even when they are switched on at low power, the noise can run quickly and reach our ears, disturbing our sleep at night even when the direct noise is dampened due to the structure-borne noise. A ceiling-mounted smoke extractor combined with a PU pad can improve acoustic comfort on board, preventing structure-borne noise from spreading.
