Sound insulation testing

In addition to our full range of acoustic consultancy services we are a UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No. 2809) for carrying out field testing of sound insulation, as required by the Building Regulations.

Sharps Redmore have been accredited for a considerable time ISO 140/4 & 7 testing required for Building Regulations Part E1 testing, but also recently are now accredited for the updated standards ISO 16283-1 & -2 applicable which can apply to Part E1 testing, and is required for Part E3 (schools) testing. Sharps Redmore are proud to be one of a small group of companies testing to this current standard, and are presently unique to be accredited to both Parts 1 and 2.

Our accreditation does not limit our tests to just Building Regulations compliance however, and we can meet all your testing requirements for:

  • Building Regulations compliance
  • Code for sustainable homes or other schemes
  • Contract requirements
  • Noise disputes
  • Troubleshooting etc

Coupled with our sound insulation testing team, our experienced consultancy staff can advise on design and remedial measures, where appropriate.
