Restaurants and cafes

When designing, constructing and renovating public catering facilities (restaurants and cafes), due attention should be paid to the issues of sound and vibration insulation. As well as, creating optimal acoustic comfort within the premises. First of all, these issues are relevant for built-in premises adjacent to a residential building or a hotel.

Long-term practice has shown that in-situ measurements of sound insulation of real building structures always turn out to be lower than the values obtained for these structures in laboratory settings. This occurs due to the indirect ways of transmitting noise between the rooms, as well as the actual quality of construction and installation works. Therefore, restaurants with high levels of noise adjacent to apartments, the method of integrated sound insulation of all surfaces using the "floor-wall-ceiling" system can be successfully applied.

Key numbers

55 dBA

The average permissible equivalent noise level in cafes and restaurants

57 dB

the minimum required sound insulation of walls separating the premises of apartments from restaurants

in 99 %of cases

you can improve acoustic comfort, create a private environment, and reduce echoing within restaurants or cafes using sound-absorbing materials in the interior decoration

The issues with sound vibration and acoustics within cafes and restaurants:

  • Sound insulation between restaurants or cafes between apartments or hotel rooms (insulation of walls and partitions, sound insulation of ceilings and floors);
  • Sound and vibration insulation of utility systems and machinery, as well as other adjacent technical premises (vibration insulation of refrigerating machines, sound insulation of chillers, etc.);
  • Acoustic comfort within dining areas of restaurants and cafes, allowing for comfortable incorporating of live music or karaoke.
