Sound Testing


What is Sound Testing?


Sound Insulation Testing (also referred to as pre-completion testing and acoustic testing) is required on all new build (providing robust details haven’t been adopted) and converted dwellings that have separating walls or floors. The requirement is driven by Part E of Building Regulations and is to ensure that suitable sound insulation has been installed.

There are two types of sound tests:

1. Airborne Tests – which are carried out on separating walls
2. Impact Tests – which are carried out on separating floors

Tests should be carried out as early as possible because issues can potentially be more difficult and costly to resolve the more progressed the build is. It is advisable to carry out tests before kitchens and bathrooms are installed. However, all doors and windows need to be fitted, all walls and ceilings should be plastered, there should be no holes or cracks in walls/floors/ceilings and there needs to be power available to all rooms.


Our Sound Testing Process:

  • Review Plans and specification and make any recommendations
  • Schedule a suitable date for the test
  • carry out the tests on-site
  • Supply the reports.
