Project: Sound Insulation Testing High Wycombe

Sound Insulation Testing High Wycombe – Completed: 24/01/2018

Technicians: Mikey Crampton

 

The Brief

We were instructed to complete a Sound Insulation Test on flats 1-5 within this property in High Wycombe.

6 tests needed carrying out- 4 of which were Airborne tests, while the other 2 were Impact tests.

To pass an Airborne test, you must score 43db or higher. Airborne tests measure the difference in sound levels between the receiver room and neighbouring walls or floors. So 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 a pass.

To pass an Impact test, you must score 64db or lower. Impact tests measure how effectively the Sound Insulation between floors cancels out sound. If there is more than 64 decibels of sound leaking through into below floors then the test would be a fail.

The Process

After reviewing drawings, on site testing was ready to be completed. All suitable equipment was set up and checked over to ensure the best possible result.
