Versafloor® 18mm for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

Achieving good levels of Sound Insulation to ensure you pass your sound test and achieve Part E compliance can seem a daunting task. We have put together a myriad of commonly used soundproofing wall and soundproofing floor solutions, with the simple aim of achieving passing your Part E sound test. We have selected a range of products which we have tested frequently and are confident in their onsite performance. So look no further your sound testing, acoustic design and product supplier is looking right at you.

For creating a high performing acoustic floor, there often needs to be a combination of both flexible and dense materials, for example, ones that have a lot of weight. Without this weight, and with the use of foam like materials, you may see an improvement for impact, but very little for airborne. If the noise is intrusive to your everyday activities, or your work team, a replacement of ply and chipboard flooring with our  Versafloor® 18mm  will help to improve the mass of the floor, and in turn, decrease airborne noise.

Versafloor® 18mm  is a tongue-and-groove, cement impregnated chipboard, and what this means for soundproofing is that the interlocking groove helps to keep an airtight seal, this is essential in maintaining excellent performance for acoustics. It has a high mass, which is important for creating a 'barrier' against airborne noise.  Versafloor® 18mm  is also load bearing on specific flooring centres, which means that you can install it as a standalone, we would need to make sure it is compatible with your structure first. To achieve the best possible solution for soundproofing, you will need to incorporate them into 'Systems', and it is here you will find  Versafloor® 18mm  in a range of options, these are found in the tab above. Each offers ways of increasing acoustic performance, for example, fitting it on top of acoustic cradles to create a fully floating floor, or by adding them to timber joist structures alongside sound insulation for a vast improvement for airborne and impact noise, or use in concrete buildings as a standalone for impact reduction.
