SIDERISE is delighted to announce it has become an Organisational Member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).

SIDERISE is delighted to announce it has become an Organisational Member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) is an international body in the field of tall buildings and sustainable urban design. A non-profit organisation, it is based at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.

The CTBUH’s aim is to study and report on all aspects of the planning, design, and construction of tall buildings and is widely considered to be a leading authority on the official height of tall buildings. The organisation provides the official update on the title of ‘The World's Tallest Building’ and maintains an extensive database of the tallest buildings in the world, organised by various categories.

The CTBUH hosts annual conferences and a World Congress every three to five years, publishes the quarterly CTBUH Journal along with numerous guidebooks, and reference manuals as well as the Skyscraper Awards. The CTBUH also works with institutions of higher-education from around the world in researching projects related to tall building design.

“Over the past decade, SIDERISE has provided products and systems to some of the world’s tallest buildings”, commented Steve Swales, Chief Commercial Officer at SIDERISE. “Becoming members of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat is key to recognising the role SIDERISE has played in helping to deliver tall buildings across the globe. We are looking forward to working with the CTBUH and contributing technical information and knowledge to further the development of tall buildings.”

In the first major innovation of its kind in 30 years, SIDERISE has launched SilentWave™ RCD - a ground-breaking acoustic treatment for marine engine rooms.

In the first major innovation of its kind in 30 years, SIDERISE has launched SilentWave™ RCD - a ground-breaking acoustic treatment for marine engine rooms. SilentWave™ RCD delivers exceptional noise reduction for recreational craft with an industry-setting 4x improvement in the cabin environment for passengers and crew, making it one of the most significant developments of its kind in recent years.

All yacht builders want to do is maximise space, minimise weight and deliver maximum performance, including quiet operation, for their clients. Fully compliant with the Recreational Craft Directive, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is the optimum sound reduction solution for recreational craft less than 34 metres. With an unmatched 4x reduction (6dB) in cabin sound pressure level, this lightweight composite treatment delivers comfort, security and protection to all passengers and crew.

Committed to continued research and development, SIDERISE went back to the drawing board to develop a new composite acoustic product that offers significantly improved absorption performance and would be aesthetically pleasing to this high-end marine market.

Graham Laws, Business Development Officer of SIDERISE said: “Modern motor yachts are built for performance, but power does come with a price. As engine performance increases so do sound levels, which can have a negative impact for crew and passengers on-board. Our new composite acoustic product can deliver the ultimate balance between acoustic performance, weight and cost.”

Easy to install, SIDERISE SilentWave™ RCD is moisture-resistant, non-flammable and features a high aesthetic finish. Tested for fire performance in accordance with ISO 4589-3 (Oxygen index >21% @elevated temperature), the composite prevents ingress of fuel and oil.

SIDERISE sets out to deliver engineered performance, keeping both large voids and mass to a minimum. The company’s innovative acoustic laminates can achieve previously unseen levels of acoustic attenuation at low frequency.

SIDERISE acoustic products have been developed over a number of years and third-party tested to certify their performance. SIDERISE has been providing noise control solutions throughout Europe within the industries of power generation, wind turbines, automotive, HVAC, rail and marine. SIDERISE technical experts can tailor the material performance directly to the controlling frequencies of your application.

SIDERISE, global leader in the development, design and manufacture of fire, acoustic and thermal solutions has launched the SIDERISE DWX range, an innovative system for the wrapping of metal ducting systems

SIDERISE, global leader in the development, design and manufacture of fire, acoustic and thermal solutions has launched the SIDERISE DWX range, an innovative system for the wrapping of metal ducting systems. The system offers both thermal insulation to maintain the efficiency of a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems as well as acoustic enhancements to reduce sound transmission. Its high performance helps to promote comfort in the workplace through the creation of energy efficient and quiet HVAC systems.

SIDERISE DWX is a soft flexible quilt that offers exceptional performance. It provides excellent sound and thermal insulation qualities, is highly durable offering long term performance in use and offers Class 0 reaction to fire. SIDERISE retains compliance at the top of its agenda, and as such, SIDERISE DWX has been tested in an independent laboratory and is fully compliant with building regulations. Furthermore, the testing was carried out on the finished products, rather than relying on the performance of individual components before they are assembled.

SIDERISE DWX encompasses a range of solutions. DW5P and DW10P comprise a flexible resin-bonded glass fibre quilt that contains an anti-dusting fleece. DW5P has a 5kg/m2 surface weight whilst DW10P has a 10kg/m2 surface weight. DW5P/NPF and DW10P/NPF comprise a polyester / PP ultra-fine fibre spacing layer. All are wrapped with a polymeric acoustic membrane and diamond stitched. The exposed surface is finished with a Class 0 reinforced aluminium foil.

The range is designed for HVAC systems as an external cladding for sheet metal ducts. However it can also be used for a range of other applications including construction, marine, automotive and OEM, where it can be used on ventilation equipment, concrete columns, generators, compressors, process plant and electrical equipment where there is a need to reduce airborne noise.


The typical level of improvement of sound transmission loss through the installation of SIDERISE DWX is 18dB, based on a single layer application on a 0.8mm steel duct. Specific sound transmission loss is dependent upon a number of factors and SIDERISE's technical team are able to work closely with clients to provide solutions that meet their exact requirements. As well as its acoustic properties and good damping characteristics, SIDERISE DWX also provides thermal efficiency, helping to reduce energy loss.

Flexible and easy to install, SIDERISE DWX can be installed with mechanical fixings such as insulation support pins with non-return washers.
