Sound insulation services

 

Approved Document E of the Building Regulations (England and Wales) stipulates sound insulation criteria for new builds and for building conversions. The regulations state that separating walls and floors, and staircases with a separating purpose must meet both the airborne (speech, television sound, etc.) and the impact (footsteps, etc.) sound insulation standards.

RSK Environment Ltd is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory No. 2546. Consequently, its building sciences team can help through its extensive experience in the construction industry.
