Sound insulation testing

AD-E 2015 cover
Residential sound insulation and testing requirements are detailed in Approved Document E

Apex Acoustics is the first independent company based in the North East of England to achieve UKAS accreditation for sound insulation testing.  We have undertaken many thousands of sound insulation tests across the country.

Check our accreditation on the UKAS website here.

Part E of The Building Regulations states that organisations carrying out testing should preferably be UKAS accredited.  The current version is available on the government’s planning portal.

Our responsive and efficient service can be tailored around your hours of work on site. We are usually able to indicate whether a partition has passed or failed the test on site. Apex can both calculate and test for flanking sound to determine the cause of any failures.

FREE* remedial advice in the case of test failures.

We also offer FREE* residential sound insulation design, for both new build and refurbishment projects.

*Please contact us for T&Cs and to determine if our FREE offering is suitable for your project.
