Part E Ceiling Sound Insulation Kit

Our part E ceiling sound insulation kit combines all the necessary materials to soundproof timber ceilings to meet the current regulations. Combine acoustic insulation slabs, soundbreaker bars and acoustic plasterboard to form the ceilings in new build and conversion projects to create the ceiling between separate habitable dwellings.

  • Noise reduction against airborne and impact sound
  • 57dB airborne sound
  • 59dB impact sound
  • One hour fire protection
  • Trade soundproofing solution
  • Part E compliant for separating floors/ceilings for new build and conversions

Part E Ceiling Sound Insulation Kit Features:

  • DFM acoustic insulation –  100mm DFM acoustic insulation layer to block and absorb airborne sound transfer through the ceiling.
  • Soundbreaker Bars – The separation, which is key to ceiling soundproofing, is created by fitting the Soundbreaker bars acoustic hangers that reduce vibration through the structure of the building. The final layer of boards is applied fixed directly into the soundbreaker bars.
  • 12.5mm acoustic plasterboard – Denser than standard plasterboard, acoustic plasterboard has increased mass and density meaning it blocks a higher level of sound. Double boarding the ceiling ensure a one-hour fire rating.

Fitting Part E Ceiling Kit

  • Infill the joist cavity with the 100mm acoustic insulation. Ensure the whole area is filled. Acoustic insulation slabs will friction fit between the joist if you cut them wider than the opening.
  • Fit the soundbreaker bars at 400mm centres. The bars are attached to the ceiling joist by screwing through the pre-drilled holes.
  • Attach the acoustic plasterboards to the bars by screwing through the boards into the wide corrugated flange on the soundbreaker bar.

Part E Compliant Flooring Solutions

Combine the Part E Ceiling kit with a suitable soundproof flooring solution to ensure compliance with the regulations. Here are a variety of solutions that when combined with this ceiling solution your separating floor will meet the airborne and impact noise regulation requirements.

Ceiling Soundproofing

Make sure you are getting the right soundproofing for your needs. Understanding the most common types of noise and how to stop them will help you decide the right solution.

Different Types of Sound

  • Airborne sounds – Conversation, TV noise and radios are examples of airborne sound. The best way to stop airborne sounds is to add mass/density to the walls or ceilings.
  • Impact/vibration sounds – Footfall and moving furniture across a floor are examples of impact sounds. The best way to reduce these sounds is to create separation.

In summary, the best way to reduce airborne sounds is by increasing the mass of the area you would like to soundproof. Reducing impact/vibration sounds is achieved by creating separation within the structure.

Reducing Impact and Airborne Sounds

By following some of these steps, you will ensure you get the best level of soundproofing for your room.

  • Mass/Density – Increasing the mass and density of the area you are soundproofing will block airborne sounds from transferring between rooms. You will increase the mass of walls and ceilings using materials such as soundproof panels or high-density acoustic insulation slabs.
  • Separation – Incorporating separation within the structure will reduce vibration and impact sounds transferring between rooms. Achieve separation by building independent stud walls and ceilings. If you don’t have the space in the room, you can use acoustic clips and resilient channels to decouple the wall and ceiling.
  • Absorption – Use materials that are going to absorb sounds. Acoustic insulation is suitable for sound absorption as it converts the sound waves into heat as it passes through the insulation. Dense mass loaded barriers will also dampen and absorb sound.

    How long will delivery take?

    We aim to despatch orders within 2-3 days of placing your order.

    If you order online, you will receive a confirmation email that we have received your order and it has been processed. We will then contact you once the order is just about ready to be dispatched to confirm a suitable delivery date. If you would like to discuss delivery times with us, please call 01423 339163. We recommend contacting us if you require the goods to be delivered on a specific date before placing your order.

    If you place an order over the weekend or on a Bank Holiday, this will be confirmed as an order on the first working day after the weekend or Bank Holiday.

    If you need goods in a hurry, give us a call. We carry most items in stock, which can be delivered quickly if required. Call 01423 339163.

    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 from 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 typically 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 know 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 heavy items 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 plan on leaving your goods outside, you should use additional coverage to protect them from adverse weather conditions.

    Damaged or missing items

    If items are damaged or missing when your order arrives, you should sign damaged or missing items on the driver’s paperwork. Call 01423339163 to let us know of the issue to allow us to rectify the problem quickly.

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

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


    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 unused materials and bring them 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 will issue a refund once they have been received.
