Peninsular Acoustics is a Registered Member of the Association of Noise Consultants Registration Scheme, which is the preferred qualification scheme for sound insulation testing in the UK. All ANC members are qualified acousticians. The alternative is UKAS (the United Kingdom Accreditation Service).
Approved Document E requires that all pre-completion sound tests are carried out by either ANC or UKAS test organisations. All our tests are performed in full accordance with ISO 140:1998 Parts 4 and 7 and Approved Document E (2003).
All newly-built and converted dwellings and ‘rooms for residential purposes’ which share a party wall or floor must be tested to a programme of 1 set of tests for every 10 dwellings, unless they are registered and built using Robust Details (new-build only).
Using the latest Norsonic test equipment from Norway, we can carry out site tests quickly and accurately so that a set of six tests usually takes less than two hours. This minimises disruption on site and enables us to keep our test fees surprisingly low. Test results can be calculated on site if required but we will normally inform the client of the test results within 24 hours. Test reports and certificates (unique to the ANC) are issued within 5 working days.
Note: We are accepted by all approved inspectors and local authority building control bodies to carry out sound insulation testing throughout England and Wales.
