SOUND INSULATION TESTING
Approved Document E (ADE) 2003 specifies standards for the sound insulation of walls and floors in a house, flat or rooms for residential purposes.
The Building Regulations Approved Document E specify that "the person carrying out the building work should arrange for sound insulation testing to be carried out by a test body with appropriate third party accreditation".
The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister has agreed that the Association of Noise Consultants are approved to be such an accreditation body.
Acoustics and Noise Limited are an accredited test body approved by the Association of Noise Consultants and are fully equipped to carry out Airborne and Impact noise resistance tests as per BS EN ISO 140 and Schedule E of the Building Regulations and to provide rating of the sound insulation as per BS EN ISO 717.
