At AF Acoustics we offer sound proofing consultancy and sound insulation testing, to ensure that your floors and walls meet the required sound insulation levels. We have many years of experience in soundproofing walls and floors and are able to tell if a wall or floor will meet the required standards, and if not, we would be able to give advice to ensure that it does.
In July 2003 the new approved document E of the building regulations came into force which required all new build dwellings and building conversions to be built with a minimum standard of sound insulation. The regulations state that separating party walls and floors must meet both airborne (speech, television sound, etc.) and impact (footstep noise, etc.) sound insulation standards. The regulations apply to all houses, flats, student residences, care homes and hotels.
The building control department of the Local Authority may ask builders or property developers to carry out sound insulation testing in order to confirm compliance with these latest standards.
We provide sound insulation testing for building regulations compliance and can help to ensure your development is signed off promptly.
