Louvres Housing Project Amsterdam
For housing project Oostenburg Kavel 6 in Amsterdam, Kumij, producer of plastic frames, has given Alara-Lukagro the order to deliver more than 100 acoustic louvres. The apartments where the louvres will be applied suffer from a high noise level on all floors, and consequently, without additional provisions, these homes will not comply with the requirements for a silent facade with adjoining bedroom.
Oostenburg Kavel 6
Oostenburg is one of the three eastern islands in the centre of Amsterdam and is also known as the former Stork area and the location of the Van Gendthallen. It is also the location of the INIT-building, which houses, among others, three newspaper editors of De Persgroep Nederland as well as the Amsterdamse Gemeentereiniging (Amsterdam Municipal Cleaning System).
This new to be realised housing project on plot 6, which will provide homes for starters, students and the elderly, is part of a surprising ensemble of residential buildings and office space designed by three different architectural firms.
To comply with the requirements of the noise policy, a sound absorbing acoustic louvre (type Al-R/150) will be applied in the façade element of Kumij. The louvres have a sound insulation value of Ra rail 13 dB and a customised crack between the louvre parts to comply with the requirements of both noise policy and ventilation capacity. The measurements of the louvres and the height between the louvre parts are customised for the frame sizes of Kumij.
The louvres are made of aluminium (AIMg3) and are treated with a duplex powder coating in the RAL colour 7016 (anthracite grey) chosen by the customer. In addition to producing the louvres for this project, Alara-Lukagro also provides the engineering, conservation, and delivery of the louvres.
