RMP acoustic consultants carry out sound insulation testing throughout the UK. Our consultants are members of the Institute of Acoustics and are accredited by the Association of Noise Consultants to carry out completion sound insulation testing to BS EN ISO 140-4:1998 & 140-7:1998 as required by Section 5 and Part E of Building Regulations and BREEAM.

See the short video below which highlights the importance and advantages of using an ANC member when it comes to sound insulation testing.

As well as sound insulation testing on new build residential developments, RMP acoustic consultants regularly carry out assessments for residential conversions. We strongly recommend that sound insulation testing is carried out on the existing building prior to redevelopment. This allows our expert team to provide tailored advice which can significantly reduce the risk of failure following completion and often reduce the level of material and remedial measures necessary to pass a sound test.

Sound insulation testing is usually conducted between party walls and party floors. The sound test procedure involves setting up a noise source in a room on one side of the party wall or floor and conducting noise measurement on both sides of a partition. Please check out our Site Ready checklist to know if your site is ready for sound insulation testing.

Once sound insulation testing is carried out, we issue a Technical Report detailing all testing results and giving recommendations on noise control measures if required. We issue ANC certificates for all sound insulation testing carried out in Scotland, England and Wales, as required by the Building Regulations.
