High Performance Sound Insulation

Vibration control solutions are used to support buildings and building structures to provide protection from low frequency ground-borne noise and vibration generated from external sources such as underground railways for the entire life of the building.

Farrat design and manufacture a comprehensive range of ever improving standard and bespoke products; ranging from individual Acoustic Bearings through to complete Building Isolation Systems including;

Acoustically Isolated Façades

Whilst cladding is attached to the structure of the building, it typically does not contribute to its stability. However, cladding does play a structural role by transferring wind loads, impact loads, snow loads, and its own self-weight back to the structural framework. Wind causes significant pressure on the surface of buildings and cladding must have sufficient strength and stiffness to resist this load, both in terms of the type of cladding selected and its connections back to the structure.

High-quality, well-designed, and professionally installed cladding can help maximise thermal performance, minimise air leakage, and optimise natural daylighting into a building. This can in turn help to optimise energy efficiency and lower capital and running costs. Poor design detailing or installation, however, will compromise cladding performance and can result in safety problems such as cladding collapse or cladding panels pulling away from the structure. Farrat offer;

  • Acoustically Isolated Façade Design
  • Expert Consultancy Services
  • Springs

Building Vibration Isolation

Farrat’s design principles and acoustic isolation solutions provide an adaptable and flexible way of incorporating vibration control into building structures, with the aim to achieve the best combined system performance of load bearing capacity, structural integrity, vibration control and buildability. The success of a building isolation project is not just reliant on the performance of the isolation bearings but requires consideration of the entire building design. Our engineering and manufacturing teams provide;

  • BVI Design Consultancy
  • Springs
  • Bearing Assemblies
  • VFT System

Installation Services

Farrat Installation Services have supplied clients from a wide range of projects with the guarantee of complete isolation, overseen by our team of project managers and engineers with specialist experience in acoustic and vibration isolation.

If installation is not required from Farrat we will support project managers and contractors with onsite installation training.
