Title: Dealing with poor sound insulation between new dwellings

Ref Code: IP14/02

Abstract1: When a test demonstrates that the sound insulation between new houses, flats or rooms for residential purposes does not meet the performance requirements of Section 0 of Approved Document E, appropriate remedial treatment is needed. This Information Paper describes how to rectify faults that can cause sound insulation to be lower than expected. Its advice is intended for developers, builders, designers, and others concerned with rectifying defects that cause poor sound insulation.
