Acoustic testing to meet your needs
As the construction envirnonment increasingly works towards densely populated offices and mixed use complexes, the associated regulations have a creative impact on the way architects approach acoustics. As needs become increasingly diverse, the ability to tailor acoustic testing to customers’ precise requirements becomes an essential ingredient in project success.
Exova has two UKAS-accredited acoustic testing facilities, one in the UK and one in the Middle East, where we meet a range of accreditations including ASTM and BS EN ISO standards. We have the flexibility to work to your individual needs, conducting trials on your own materials or on samples that we can provide.
Sound transmission and absorption services
Knowing the acoustic absorption levels of architectural materials and the behaviour of sound reverberation prior to build can be vital. Our sound absorption tests can be conducted in our reverberation chambers, assessing the performance of absorption materials such as acoustic panels and baffles in noise control.
We also conduct acoustic testing on insulation material such as glasswool and rockwool and on the following products:
- Door seals
- Glazing systems
- Penetration and linear joint seals
- Single leaf partition systems
Site-based acoustic testing
In addition to laboratory acoustic testing, we can conduct analysis on-site for the measurement of sound insulation of separating walls and floors between rooms and of façade elements. Our services apply to a broad range of customers, including window and door manufacturers, plasterboard and partition wall suppliers, and concrete block providers.
