Local Building Regulations demand that new domestic buildings have a minimum level of sound insulation, as detailed in Technical Standard E "Resistance to the passage of sound".

Where sound insulation is important for the comfort of occupants, such as semi-detached houses or apartments, Building Regulations require that levels of sound insulation in separating elements of the building meet minimum standards. 

There are two ways of proving compliance, either by using construction details approved by Robust Details Ltd or by Sound Insulation testing. With our Technicians trained to Institute of Acoustics Standard, AFM offer this airborne and impact sound testing in accordance with ISO140-4 and ISO140-7 procedures.  

Our aim is to help Contractors achieve the required Sound Insulation Standards first time, as cost-effectively as possible.
