Sound Insulation testing – Barn Conversion in Shrewsbury

THE BRIEF

  • To pass an Airborne test for conversion properties you must score 43db or higher 
  • 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
