MuteMat 3 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.

MuteMat® 3 is a premium floor soundproofing product that features strong performance against both airborne and impact noise. It is available for install on for both timber and concrete structures, and it is both slim and straightforward to install. To achieve the best possible solution for soundproofing, you will need to incorporate them into 'Systems', and it is here you will find MuteMat® 3 in a range of options. Each offers ways of increasing acoustic performance, for example, by fitting them alongside acoustic cradles to create a fully floating floor, by adding them to 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.


  • 12mm x 1200mm x 600mm.
  • For improving both airborne and impact noise issues.
  • Application to both concrete and timber subfloors.
  • Resistant to mould, fungi and rot.
  • Compliant with both Part E Building Regulations (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and Building Standards Technical Handbook 2017 for Scotland for impact transmission.

As a three-ply soundproof material, MuteMat® 3 comprises of two layers of Mass Loaded Vinyl at both two and four millimetres, each provides a level of damping that due to its flexible mass it will help to break down airborne sound energy. Bonded between the mass layers is a six-millimetre closed cell foam, this helps to provide a solid performance against impact noise due to its compressibility, this is very important in timber structures as rubber alternatives are often too dense.

The subjective nature of noise means that there are problematic noises that will affect you but will not have the same effect for others. Your sensitivity to a specific sound or event will vary, and this could be disruption from footsteps above, noise from traffic or a commercial store below, or even from casual conversation. Acoustic issues vary for homes or workplaces, but it is MuteMat® 3 that offers you the flexibility to suit your specifications for performance, cost and thickness.
