Acoustic Flooring for Your Project

All new build and existing floors must meet minimum sound insulation values in order to pass Part E Building Regulations. Resonate’s range of high performance acoustic flooring products will enable you pass the required test. For more information contact our technical experts to meet Part E regulations and prevent delayed project completion.

Sound Insulation Solutions for Floors

Resonate Systems manufacture high performance acoustic flooring solutions for a range of new build and refurbishment applications. Our acoustic floor products have been specifically designed to enable projects to achieve Part E Building Regulations and provide occupants with excellent living conditions. When selecting the soundproofing solution for your floor it is important to consider the type of floor and the intended use of the room. When soundproofing new and existing floors the impact and airborne acoustic values need to be met to achieve Part E Building Regulations.

Acoustic Flooring for Specific Applications

Soundproofing New Build Floors

All new build floors and walls must meet sound insulation values to achieve Part E Building Regulations. To achieve these standards soundproofing solutions need to be installed as part of the overall construction of a new development.

The typical types of floor for new developments are: Concrete Floors, Timber Floors, Steel Floors

The soundproofing performance will differ significantly depending on the combination of floor type and soundproofing product selected. Therefore it is important to select the soundproofing product that best meets your requirements. Find out more about soundproofing new build floors here.

Acoustic Insulation for Existing Floors

A suitable method of meeting Part E Building Regulations on Refurbishment timber floors often involves a combination of the following acoustic treatments:

1. Acoustic floor boards on the sub floor, 2. flanking strips around the floor perimeter, 3. soundproofing wool in between the joist, 4. resilient bars and acoustic plasterboards fixed below the joists.

The acoustic floor boards will provide the necessary barrier for impact noise, whilst soundproofing wool is effective at reducing the transmission of airborne noise. Resilient bars decouple the floor from the ceiling, reducing the transmission of vibrations through the floor. Find out more about soundproofing existing floors here.

Sound Insulation for Bedroom Floors

The bedroom is one of the most important places to soundproof. It is where people sleep, play loud music, video games and more making it important to soundproof the room for the benefit of the occupant and people in surrounding rooms. Soundproofing a bedroom is also important to ensure a development meets Part E Building Regulations.

Acoustic Flooring for Bathrooms

Soundproofing a bathroom requires careful consideration for the high levels of water and moisture that are present in these environments. Selecting the wrong solution can result in damaged floors and significant repair costs to resolve. In addition to meeting Part E Building Regulations it is important to soundproof bathrooms to reduce the noise of running water, pipes and foot traffic.

Timber and Steel Floor Soundproofing

Timber and steel floors require acoustic insulation to deal with both airborne and impact noise. Airborne noise is of greater concern when soundproofing timber and steel floors as these type of developments lack the mass of a concrete floor. Therefore, in order to achieve Part E Regulations soundproofing solutions must be designed to reduce both impact and airborne noise sources.

Noise Reduction for Timber Floors

The following soundproofing products are recommended for timber floor applications:

New Build:
GYPDECK dry screed acoustic floor boards

Existing Floors:
ResoDeck acoustic chipboards
GYPDECK dry screed acoustic floor boards

Concrete Floor Soundproofing

Soundproofing a separating concrete floor and meeting the demands of Part E Building Regulations mainly concerns the elimination of impact noise. Airborne noise is less of an issue as the mass of a concrete floor is able to absorb airborne noise transmission without the need to install soundproofing materials.
