SoundPLANnoise and SoundPLANessential

The right software for every requirement

Whether you are faced with noise reports in connection with construction requests, a range of tasks in the field of environmental acoustics or the assessment and optimisation of an open-plan office: With SoundPLAN you are always right.

SoundPLANessential, as a cost-effective option for standard noise reports in environmental acoustics, offers you the basis for fast and high-quality results - even if your main focus is not on noise protection.

If your field of activity changes and SoundPLANessential is no longer sufficient for your requirements, you can easily upgrade to the SoundPLANnoise package that suits you best at any time.

SoundPLANnoise is equally suitable for all facets of noise immission control, noise at the workplace or room acoustics, and small projects or nationwide noise mapping. Thanks to the flexible combination of modules, which allows you to only buy what you really need, you will find the perfect personal software package. Later expansions are possible at any time. The rental option for the whole software or for individual modules allows for further flexibility.
