Finding sound leaks in façade

The façade is not only the face of the building, but it should also create a comfortable indoor space and keep unwanted noise from outside out. To accomplish this, the façade should be installed correctly. If not, it might result in sound leaks in the façade, via which noise travels from outside to inside. With the Sorama CAM iV64, you can localize these sound leaks, so you can fix the façade.

Right now, how do you test your façade for sound leaks? How do you localize leaks? Often you have to wait until an expert comes by and does sound measurements. Wouldn’t it be easier to know immediately if there are any leaks right after completing the façade?

Using the right tools to find sound leaks

After constructing the façade and the exterior construction, you or your colleague can do a measurement with the CAM iV64. The acoustic camera enables you to find and visualize any present sound leaks on the spot. That way you can confirm straight away whether the façade is installed correctly and if not, you can immediately fix the sound leaks.
It just takes 3 steps:

  1. After constructing the façade, you place an omni-directional speaker or another strong sound source, in the room and you move outside of the room.
  2. You turn on the speaker and start measuring with the CAM iV64.

  3. The CAM iV64 will show you where the sound leaks are.

Additionally, you are able to record a movie and take pictures of the sound leaks. You can use this visualization in a report and share it with your customer as prove, if desired.

Your benefits

Save time and money: you can immediately fix any sound leaks without completing the full construction.

Proof: visualize that there are no sound leaks.

No expertise needed: you don’t need to be an expert to use the CAM iV64.

Finding sound leaks in interior walls

Besides finding sound leaks in the façade and exterior construction, you can also use the CAM iV64 for interior walls. When interior walls aren’t installed correctly, sound might leak from one room to another room.
