So, what exactly is sound insulation testing?
Sound insulation tests generally cover two types of noise; airborne and impact. Airborne sound is transmitted through the air. This could be in the form of a conversation, noise from a TV or music. Impact sound is when a sound physically hits something, like someone tapping on the wall or walking up the stairs. We test for these noises to make sure that residential dwellings comply with Part E of the Building Regulations, which sets out what a reasonable level of sound should be. This ensures residents live peacefully with acceptable levels of sound insulation.
