Who wants a project to go down the tubes?
Wölfel – Experts for Shock and Vibration Control, Building Demolition and the Design of Bell Towers
We support building owners and project developers as well as municipalities and authorities with short-term or permanent solutions for vibration measurement as well as its mitigation, prepare vibration forecasts based on measurement data and simulations, and provide reliable expert opinions. Even when a structure needs to be removed, we are your partner: with safe blasting and dismantling concepts.
OUR CERTIFICATES – THE FOUNDATION YOU CAN BUILD ON</header></div>
According to § 29b of the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG), we are a recognized independent measuring agent for the determination of emissions and immissions of noise and vibrations.
We are accredited by the German Accreditation Body according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 for tests in the fields of determination of noise and vibration, noise measurements on wind turbines, noise and vibration at the workplace, aircraft noise, building acoustics, immission control module. Our DAkkS registration number: D-PL-19254-01-00.
Our work is the foundation you can build on, both literally and proverbially – we are certified and quality-assured according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2008.
WHAT ROLE DO VIBRATIONS PLAY?
More and more frequently, our tasks begin where classical structural analysis reaches its limits. Regardless of whether you are planning a residential building next to a rattling railroad line, your tunnel construction site is causing vibrations to adjacent structures, or a laboratory full of sensitive measurement technology needs to be absolutely vibration-free – the measurement, monitoring and compensation of vibrations and their effects on buildings have been our profession for decades.
WHEN MACHINES NEED PEACE AND QUIET
People need concentration and a quiet environment if they are to achieve precise results. Many machines are no different. Whether it's the printing press in a publishing house, the turbine in a power plant, the MRI machine in a neurologist's office, a clean room laboratory or a sensitive IT system – if the environment is affected by vibrations, precision and the ability to work suffer.
With our extensive experience in machine and construction dynamics, we find optimal solutions – regardless of whether it is a matter of a durably designed plant in an earthquake zone or the temporary vibration protection of a laboratory next to which a high-emission construction site is planned.
BIG BANG BOOM – WE ARE ALSO SPECIALISTS FOR BUILDING DEMOLITION
Wölfel not only protects buildings from vibrations and shocks – we also use the force of dynamic stress to demolish them. Thus, we develop demolition concepts by means of blasting or dismantling and offer vibration and shock control and vibration monitoring for the respective environment, all from a single source.
HOW BIG CAN THE BELL BE?
One of our areas of expertise is the calculation and design of restoration and renewal measures for bell towers. For centuries, these structures have had to withstand the strong vibrations caused by ringing bells, some of which weigh several tons. In doing so, we not only ensure a stable tower masonry, but also provide for the bell-musical fine-tuning and thus perfectly prepare the further work of structural engineers and bell founders.
