Abstract: The thermal and acoustic insulation of individual building elements such as walls, windows and systems for roller shutters significantly affects the thermal and acoustic insulation of a building. This paper considers the acoustic and thermal performance of the individual elements evaluated in laboratory with simulation of both the façade sound reduction index and thermal transmittance of a typical room. The scope of this work is to verify if there are any correlations between acoustic and thermal performance; for this reason, 4 types of opaque wall, 3 window systems for roller shutters and 5 windows for a total of 60 façade configurations have been considered and combined.
