The most important thing in advance:
Yes, all synthetic rubber insulation materials like ours VANUE® INSULATE panel have a good sound insulation effect, which noticeably reduces the volume in the vehicle. If you want it to be as quiet as possible in your camper and during the Drive or at rainy days If you want to hear as little background noise as possible, you can insulate your camper with ours VANUE® MUTE sound insulation panels bring to the next level.
So how big are the differences with and without a sound insulation board?
Noise while driving or in heavy rain
If we drive our campers on the motorway, the entire body is excited by various different vibrations. There is the engine, which oscillates in different frequency ranges depending on the speed, excitations from the road surface and much more. When these vibrations are transmitted to the body, it also vibrates. Similar to a loudspeaker membrane, the vibrating sheet metal surfaces in the vehicle generate noise. By installing the VANUE® MUTE sound insulation panels, these vibrations are greatly reduced.
They are on a large sheet metal surface VANUE® MUTE sound insulation panels, in the case of periodic excitations, e.g. from the engine speed or excitations from the roadway, which fall within the natural frequency range of the sheet metal, for up to 60 % and the VANUE® INSULATE panel for accordingly 40 % responsible for noise reduction. With such suggestions, one usually has to do with the sound insulation panels at least 20 – 30 % Noise reduction, which makes a big difference, especially on long car journeys.
ambient noise and knocking
You've probably often seen videos of people banging on their insulated camper to show that it doesn't make a difference whether sound insulation is installed or not. This is simply because the soundproofing panels are not designed at all to reduce this type of noise any more than the insulation does. That's a bit like someone saying the gas stove is useless because I can't do my laundry with it... that's the main reason why we were able to reduce the weight of the VANUE Mute panel by almost 50% without sacrificing the sound insulation properties.
When it comes to noises, such as knocking, the ratio between the VANUE Insulate with its sound insulation of up to 40 db and without sound insulation panels is quite small. Here is the added value that the plates offer at "only" 5 - 10 %.
You have the following advantages if you also install the VANUE® MUTE sound insulation boards for the VANUE® INSULATE insulation:
- The general noise pollution when driving is noticeably reduced.
- The sound of raindrops hitting the vehicle is significantly quieter.
- Doors no longer rattle and are significantly quieter when closing.
- The noise from the wheel arches when driving over e.g. B. gravel roads is significantly reduced.
Why is the VANUE® MUTE sound insulation board 1.2 mm thick and made of rubber, unlike the Alubutyl?
the VANUE® MUTE sound insulation panels have been specially designed for use in conjunction with the VANUE® INSULATE developed. By combining the two materials, we were able to reduce the weight of the sound insulation panels from 3.9 kg/m² to 2.1 kg/m². This saves you almost half the weight when you expand it. The weight saving not only leaves you with more payload, you also save fuel and at the same time protect the environment.
It definitely makes sense, next to the insulation still sound insulation panels to block. It is important to know that a lot helps not much. If you want to know how to optimally install the sound insulation panels, you can find them here here a contribution to it.
