Ensure your project meets Part E requirements for airborne and impact noise

It is important to note that in a majority of developments the requirements will be for a sound test for airborne and impact sound. You will need to consider whether the separating structure will achieve the required sound insulation for both airborne as well as impact? Most properties would require to have not only the ceilings treated with this type of solution, but would also require a solution on the floor above.

The best way to treat impact sound is at the source, in most cases this means adding a resilient layer to the floor. the best methods of achieving this, and to ensure compliance with Part E is to use either an acoustic mat over the floor or install a floating floor. Floating floor solutions can be installed over an existing floor or as a direct to joist solution if the flooring has been removed.

Solutions to combine with the Part E Ceiling Kit to pass Building Regulations Part E

You can view our full range of floor soundproofing products here. The floor solution you use will be determined by factors such as the existing sub-floor, has the floor been removed as part of the work, what is the limit to the thickness of the soundproofing you can lay on the floor? knowing what the floor finish will be will also have a bearing on the type of soundproof flooring you can use.



Still unsure how to soundproof your project to comply with Part E. We are able to offer expert advice on all aspects of Building regulations for your floors, call 01423 339163. Alternatively send us your enquiry.

How will my order be delivered?

The majority of orders we despatch are sent on pallets. We use a network of pallet distribution companies across the UK. All our pallet deliveries are kerbside deliveries. This means the pallet will be delivered as near to the delivery address as possible. Pallets are unloaded form the vehicles with a pallet truck. If it is possible the pallets can be dropped on driveways if they are accessible with the pallet truck.

Pallet deliveries are normally made on 7.5 tonne vehicles that are similar in size to bin lorries. Occasionally larger vehicles are used. If you know of any reason why it might be difficult to deliver to your address with this type of vehicle please let us so we can pass the information on to the delivery company. Typical delivery problems can include parking restrictions, access issues for certain size vehicles, low bridges and overhanging trees. Call 01423 339163 if you are unsure.

Unfortunately the delivery drivers will not bring the goods into your property or unload the individual items from the pallets.

Many of our items are heavy and often require two people to carry them safely.

All orders sent on pallets are wrapped and secured to the pallet to protect them while in transit. Once you have received your order we would recommend storing the materials inside. If you are planning on leaving your goods outside you should use additional covering to protect them from any adverse weather conditions.

Damaged or missing items

In the unfortunate event that items are damaged or missing when your order arrives you should sign damaged or missing items on the drivers paperwork. Call 01423339163 to let us know of the issue to allow us to quickly rectify the problem.

We might ask for a picture of the damage, this is to speed up the process of arranging a suitable solution.

To enable us to quickly resolve any issues with your delivery it is important that you sign for your delivery when it arrives.

Returns

Can I return items from my order? Yes you can return unused items from your order that are in a salable condition. We can arrange to collect any unused materials and have them brought back to us. We would refund the cost of the items returned back to us less the shipping cost incurred by the company collecting the items. The cost to return the goods would be confirmed at the point of arranging the return. The refund would be paid once the goods have been brought back and have been checked at our warehouse.

Alternatively you can arrange to return the materials back to us and we would issue a refund once they have been received.

Special delivery note if you order soundbreaker bars as part of a wall or ceiling kit

If you order a wall or ceiling soundproofing kit that include soundbreaker bars these will be delivered separately from the pallet. we are not able to despatch the bars with the pallet. The soundbreaker bars are too long to go with the pallet so they will be delivered separately. No additional charges are incurred for the separate deliveries. We try to ensure the pallet and the bars arrive on the same day, occasionally this might not happen. Normally both deliveries are made within 24 hours of each other.

*All prices displayed are exclusive of VAT @ 20%. This will be added at the end of the checkout process before you confirm your order.

If you require any additional information regarding deliveries please give us a call 01423 339163, alternatively get in touch via our contacts page.
