Sound Insulation Testing

Sound Insulation Testing Ireland www

We provide sound insulation testing and consultancy advice on new and existing buildings. We accurately measure airborne and impact noise transfer between dwellings such as apartments, terraced houses and semi-detached housing. All tests will are carried out following guidance in the 2014 Irish Building Regulations Technical Guidance Document E (TGD-E).

As full members of the Institute of Acoustics (IoA) and the Association of Acoustic Consultants of Ireland (AACI), combined with extensive acoustic consultancy experience, we are well-positioned to provide competent and qualified technical advice on matters relating to building acoustics.

  1. Room acoustics – sound generation within a room;
  2. Building acoustics – sound insulation between rooms.
