Acoustic Performance for Loxo Wall System

Sound Acoustic Qualities

The Loxo® Panel System provides acoustic performance levels equivalent to other masonry products that are twice as thick. Although the acoustic performance of residential external walls is not a requirement of the BCA, it is reassuring to know that acoustic performance is achieved when you use the Loxo® Panel System. (Refer KOIKAS Acoustics report 2156R20120302).

The Loxo® Panel System offers good acoustic performance. To significantly increase the acoustic performance against outside noise, the use of sound insulation materials is recommended.


The Loxo® Panel System meets the performance requirements of P2.4.6 of the BCA in respect of acoustic performance.
