What is Sound Testing?
In the construction industry, sound testing refers to the practice of conducting acoustic tests to check the efficiency of a partitioning structure or 'party' wall/floor that sits between two dwellings..
This is commonly required for a building to comply with Building Regulations and various other industry standards. In most cases, a sound test will be needed before a property can be signed off by authorities.
Supplying these niche services to buildings of all shapes and sizes, the Facade Group has proven invaluable to projects including the following types of properties:
- New Build Residential Houses
- New Build Residential Apartments

How to conduct a sound insulation test
Sound insulation tests or 'airborne tests' as they are referred to, involve creating noise on one side of the party wall/floor. The volume of the noise is then measured from the other side, evaluating how much of the noise the wall/floor is successfully insulating.
When using the Facade Group as your appointed sound testers, we will conduct all tests quickly and with minimal disruption, utilising industry-leading testing equipment and practices when working on your property.
