Sound insulation

Sound insulation is a key issue in today's noisy world. Indeed, there is now a mandatory onus on housebuilders to demonstrate that minimum sound insulation standards are met.

There is mounting concern over the poor acoustic performance of lightweight construction particularly with unwanted noise coming through walls, floors and ceilings of adjacent rooms or adjacent properties.

Reinforced concrete offers a high degree of sound insulation - at no extra charge and without the need for additional finishes - that meets the requirements of building regulations and the demands of building occupiers.
