Measurement report for Caputh

From 1 February to 28 February 2023, FBB’s mobile measuring station was located in Caputh on the grounds of the volunteer fire service near the industrial park. Aircraft noise measurements showed a continuous daytime sound level of 27.0 dB(A) and a continuous night-time sound level of 23.4 dB(A).

In Caputh, a few take-offs on the north runway were measured in aircraft movements to the west and occasional landings on the north and south runways in aircraft movements to the east. These take-offs and landings produced an average maximum level of 56 dB(A).

The continuous sound levels are important for, among other things, determining threshold values for guaranteeing noise protection measures. Rooms used at night are protected from a continuous sound level of 50 dB(A); rooms used during the day from 60 dB(A).

All measured values were clearly below the claim limits for noise protection or compensation measures.
