In many environments, suspended ceilings are a key factor to provide the correct acoustic environment. Isomass frequently offers PI backed solutions to improve both ‘reverberation’ and‘Sound Attenuation’, in structures sometimes many decades or even centuries old. Commonly high sound attenuation is also required in domestic dwellings under Approved Doc E of the building regulations.
Building Bulletin 93 (BB93) has placed a higher value on acoustics, recommending ‘a structured approach to acoustic design at each stage of the planning and design process’. While upper limits exist for the indoor ambient noise levels in specific room types, there is no provision for impact noise created by rain. Section 3 of BB93 recognises that rain noise is an important source of unwanted noise which must be considered in the early stages of roof design.
Party walls that divide neighbours can be a problem especially when there is less background noise being generated within the home. Earlier houses and flats may have been created with separating walls that have little or no acoustic insulation so normal noise levels can more easily be heard from adjoining neighbours. Isomass will offer solutions to reduce noise nuisance through a wall and improve the sound insulation.
