Can you explain a bit more about sound insulation testing?
All new builds or residential dwellings need to comply with the regulations and provide what is called a reasonable resistance to the passage of sound. This means that sound levels are kept to a minimum through the build of the dwelling so that the residents can enjoy a peaceful living space. We test both airborne and impact sound to ensure that these regulations are met, and that noise pollution is kept to a minimum.
What is tested during Sound Insulation Testing?
Generally speaking, a development that has 10 buildings or less will need 2 airborne wall tests, 2 airborne floor tests and 2 impact floor tests. But of course, this might change depending on the size of the development you’re working on. If you’re unsure, contact us now! We can give you a bespoke quote for the size of your development. Just let us know your requirements so we can get to understand your project better.
