Sound Insulation Testing on a listed building in Kings Bromley, Staffordshire

THE BRIEF

  • We were instructed to complete Sound Insulation Testing on this Grade II listed building in the delightful rural village of Kings Bromley in Staffordshire
  • This was an Airborne Party Wall test
  • To pass an Airborne test, you must score 43db or higher (45 on new build properties)
  • Airborne tests measure the difference in sound levels between the receiver room and neighbouring walls or floors
  • If the sound output in the receiver room is 100db and the sound leakage being passed through into the neighbouring room is 40db, then the result would be 60 and therefore would be a pass
