Sound Insulation Testing is one of the many terms used when referring to the Sound Insulation Regulations for Part E of the building regulations. This compliance is set out to test party walls and floors to ensure compliance with part E of the Building Regulations. (A ‘party wall’ or floor is the shared partition between two dwellings.) Sound Insulation Testing is such an important part of your build and essential that you get Building Control to sign it off. ATSPACE is ready and equipped to take on your sound insulation testing requirements. By providing expert advice, you will be fully prepared for your sound insulation regulations. The test itself usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the party wall or the floor being sound tested. Access to both sides of the partition(s) will need to be given. Please bear this in mind when booking your Sound Insulation Test, as it is vital for us to carry out the sound testing.

ATSPACE has over 9,000 Sound Insulations Tests under its belt. Our team, including relationship managers and engineers, are on hand to help you with anything you need, right down to the last detail.

We offer full “end to end support”, which includes pre-visit checklists, so that you are fully aware and prepared for your sound insulation test. Sometimes with Sound Testing, you can be unsure whether your party wall or floor will pass, but don’t worry, we can help with design consultancy. This is where we can evaluate the performance and give you a predictive calculation. If the performance isn’t adequate, we offer advice and what materials to use in the floor / wall material make up, so we don’t get any unnecessary surprises when it comes to sound insulation testing.   Our knowledge in sound testing is extensive, so please don’t hesitate to call for advice.

Sound insulation Testing is required for all new construction as well as some residential conversions. Your build is tested in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations! – Watch to find out more.

Why Do I Need a Sound Test?

The simplest answer is that you will need it for Building Control and to make sure you are meeting the latest building regulations. The tests done can have a bigger impact on the overall project than you might think. 

What is Airborne and Impact Sound? 

Your Sound Insulation Test will test for both Airborne and Impact sound. Understanding what these terms mean will help you to get the best from your test.
