In apartment buildings and offices is often the task of increasing the sound insulation of walls and ceilings from airborne noise. Traditional methods of solving this problem, gypsum board on metal or wooden framehave low efficiency. This is, in particular, due to transmission sound vibrations through the frame and the presence of a large number of wall lining elements that must be properly performed during installation. The frameless panels for additional sound insulation (ZIPS) were developed
more » ... in 1999 in Russia. They have high rates of additional sound insulation (9...18 dB) depending from thickness of 43...120 mm. This system was patented and still is widely in use. In addition, the system provides the necessary durability and ease of installation. Over 20 years, the system has undergone several upgrades. The article describes the physical principle of the ZIPS-system, the calculation data and laboratory acoustic measurements, latest modification of the system with adjustable mounts.
