Approved Doc E Sound Testing
Approved Document E of the Building Regulations is a government-issued document providing guidance for architects, developers, building control bodies, building services engineers, and others involved in the design and conversion of buildings for residential purpose. The document explains the sound testing requirement and provides advice and details about building procedures and materials that affect test results.
Devon based, Soundguard Acoustics Ltd is approved under the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) registration scheme for carrying out sound insulation testing (Registration number: 194-01) and will carry out sound tests across the South West and the UK.
The ANC scheme is supported by Approved Document E and ensures that sound insulation tests are carried out by suitably qualified and experienced staff, in accordance with the appropriate standards.
The scheme ensures that sound tests are properly traceable, audited and that you receive a fully documented report and certificate which will be easily recognised for approval by your local Building Control department.
If you require further advice with your project or end of build sound testing then please contact us.
