How Sound Travels
Noise problems in buildings come from two acoustic transmission sources: airborne and impact sound. Airborne sound emanates from sources such as TV, stereo equipment etc and travels through the air into the fabric of a building. Impact sound arises mechanically and travels through the fabric of the structure e.g. walking, moving furniture etc. Any acoustic isolation which may be in place, could be negated by 'flanking', which occurs where there is an alternative path that sound can use to bypass a insulating materials, this could be due to mechanical bridging or hidden cavities, such as poor mortar joints or inadequate dry lining.
We find that one of the most common causes of problems is through flanking paths, and we therefore seek to identify them and provide solutions to deal with them.
