Approved Document E (ADE) of the Building Regulations 2003
(amended 2004 and 2010) for England & Wales is designed to cater for acoustic insulation. These regulations have changed the pass criteria for airborne sound by putting a greater emphasis on low frequency sound (100Hz - 400Hz) which can be the root cause of many complaints about noise.
ADE applies to both new build and conversion projects defined as rooms for residential purposes which includes nursing homes, hotels, hostels, and student accommodation, applying to the separating walls, floors and ceilings between adjoining dwellings. All Isomass acoustic sound proofing systems are designed to comply with these standards and it is important to understand that builders will need to demonstrate that they have been achieved in two ways. Either pre-completion testing (PCT) for conversion, change of use or new build (that are not using a Robust Detail), or using a Robust Detail (new build only), depending upon the project.
