Project: Sound Insulation Testing Walsgrave Road, Coventry

Sound Insulation Testing Walsgrave Road, Coventry – Completed: 06/06/2018

Technicians: Mikey Crampton

 

The Brief

We were instructed to complete a Sound Insulation Test on this converted tattoo shop in Coventry.

A mixture of Airborne Floor, Airborne Wall and Impact Floor Tests needed carrying out on this particular project.

To pass an Airborne test, you must score 43db (45 on new build properties) 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 (62 on new build properties) 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.
