Based on the TÜV-certified elevator insulation JAI, JORDAHL has developed two new types that reliably ensure that elevators with backpack suspension or high load capacity are also acoustically decoupled. The new product solutions reduce sound transmission at the most effective point between the elevator guide rail and the shaft wall. This is particularly important for buildings with high sound insulation requirements. These must be taken into account both in new buildings and in the modernisation of existing buildings.
Lecture about our new product solutions
In a technical lecture at the First Swiss Lift Day on 9 November in Wallisellen, our expert Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mazen Ayoubi addresses a topic that is equally important for elevator manufacturers, planners and architects. He explains the principle of sound insulation in elevator shafts with reference to the JAI types, which reduce the introduced structure-borne noise by up to 26 dB at the transition between the elevator guide rail and the shaft wall. A particularly important point of the presentation is the aspect of safety, as the construction elements absorb and transmit high forces. Ayoubi also goes into more detail about the areas of application and test results of the new JAI types.
Expert advice on site
The Swiss Association for Technical Inspections (SVTI) is the organiser of the conference. As a private, independent company, it monitors around 50,000 technical installations and equipment, more than 2,000 kilometres of natural gas and oil pipelines and other objects in Switzerland on behalf of the federal government and the cantons. It also carries out market surveillance for pressure equipment and lifts.
The First Swiss Lift Day will focus in particular on current trends in urban and building development in Switzerland and the associated requirements for the planning of elevator systems. Register here, let our experts advise you on site and be inspired by the lectures. We look forward to seeing you!
