The input values in the database are carefully selected and there are more than 1500 European constructions that supports the three softwares below. The database are used by many consultants and updated versions are sent out two times per year. Using the softwares below together with our database can be said to be good industry practice for predicting the sound insulation.
CadnaB is developed by DataKustik GmbH with similar features as its predecessor BASTIAN. Together with our database, it becomes a powerful tool to calculate the building acoustic parameters.
SONarchitect is developed by Sound of Numbers and with it, you can evaluate the sound insulation of the entire building according to the ISO 12354 series. Our database is integrated within the Acousticbase database that the program uses.
BASTIAN has been used in the Nordic countries since 2000 to calculate sound insulation in buildings. The software is still used by many consultants but it is no longer maintained by the supplier DataKustik GmbH.
"The SOAB database was established in 2001 by Simmons akustik & utveckling in cooperation with Sintef Byggforsk and DELTA Akustik
The service is now continued by Sonusoft, in order to maintain and develop this extremely efficient way of providing reliable data to the acoustic community in the Nordic countries." /Christian Simmons 2023
