In this paper an insulation structure from apparel cutting waste was designed and its sound insulation properties were investigated. Shredded polyester apparel cuttings were used as the raw material for an insulation structure. The obtained results show that the insulation structure made from apparel cutting waste has good sound absorption compared to standard sound and thermal insulators. The average sound absorption of the samples was from 54.7% to 74.7%, for a frequency range of 250-2000Hz. The research demonstrates a way to decrease environmental pollution by using polyester apparel cuttings waste for insulation purposes in roof construction and internal walls.

Key Words: apparel cutting waste, building insulation materials, sound insulation
