Abstract
The use of double-sheet enclosures with an intermediate air chamber in façades guarantees a higher quality of acoustic insulation against external airborne noise. The effective advantages of the intermediate air chamber depend mainly on its airtightness and the absorbent material contained inside. A ventilated façade with lightweight cladding (LVF) is a specific construction system for double-sheet envelope façades, characterised by an intermediate air chamber that enables a certain amount of...
