Posted: Nov 01, 2017

"An Anechoic Chamber is most often designed to create a desirable testing space for such examples as; Response of Loudspeakers and Microphones, Loudness of General Electronic Equipment or Simulating Spatial Acoustics for Concert Halls in the design process, it is also used as a training facility for Astronauts in NASA – “Astronauts do part of their training in anechoic chambers at NASA, so they can learn to cope with the silence of space.” https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2012/may/

Adding Acoustic Weight to Gym Designs

Posted: Jan 22, 2018

Its that time of the year again where New Year resolutions lead to fitness commitments and Gym memberships soar!

AND to cater for this massive surge of enthusiasm there has been an exponential explosion of Gyms across the UK.

These new Gyms are often in Mixed Use Developments such as in hotels, shopping centres, industrial units, above shops, more accessible and open for increasingly longer hours. Sounds like heaven? Well not if you live next door to a badly designed one.

Acoustic Control is an important consideration in both specification and construction of each building to ensure that the impact of airborne noise and impact noise is minimised in transfer between spaces. A common place in which soundproofing is required is in multiple dwellings such as housing conversions and large scale residential builds – where a sound transmission can be most problematic, and the requirement of Part E Building Regulations determines whether a property is suitable for living.

In this post, we will be guiding you on the common mistakes that often cause failures in Sound Testing and how to ensure you have the best chance in passing the sound test. We will also look at sound testing for Airborne and Impact noise and using the correct soundproofing materials for your project. We want to make sure you are receiving the best guidance as possible to help your project through the sound test.
