Speech & Noise Stop Light Partner: Politecnico di Torino (Dipartimento Energia); Onleco S.r.l.; Web Service S.r.l. In collaboration with: BSA – Bottega Studio Architetti The feasibility study for S&N-S Light (Speech & Noise Stop Light) focus on verifying the development and commercialization of an intelligent sound level device with a light indicator for exceeding noise limits. This device can be helpful in controlling noise from chatter in both indoor (cafeterias, schools, restaurants, conference rooms, waiting rooms, etc.) and outdoor (patios) environments, leading to an improvement in the acoustic quality of these spaces.

SDF-02 PRIN 2.1

PRIN 2.1 – High-Performance Prefabrication for Integrated Building Envelope Partner: Onleco S.r.l.; SE.PA.M. S.r.l.; Politecnico di Torino (Department of Energy). The feasibility study intents to innovate in the field of continuous prefabricated facades by analyzing the potential of an integrated opaque and transparent system that involves manufacturing different parts in the factory and assembling them on-site. The novelty of the feasibility study lies in the adaptability of stratifications of opaque lightweight claddings (made of plasterboard or wood), effective in terms of thermohygrometric and acoustic performance, to a continuous aluminum facade system currently used for transparent claddings.
