Acoustics In Your Home

Sound has an astonishing ability to find its way through the smallest of gaps and can also transmit through the walls of residential buildings.

Residential buildings can include; apartment blocks, care homes, student accommodation and houses of single or multi story occupancy. The problem that residential buildings face is from unwanted impact and/or airborne sounds travelling throughout the structure.

Airborne and impact are two ways in which sound can travel.  Airborne refers to sounds that can travel through the air and into adjoining rooms, examples include; voices, snoring, music systems or television.  Impact noise refers to sounds caused by impact such as light or heavy footsteps, moving furniture and even objects that have been dropped onto the floor.  Impact noises send vibrations through the structure of a dwelling.

With all residential environments, noise levels can negativity affect a person’s mental health, including; sleep deprivation, lack of concentration, bad tempered and suffering from feelings of general irritability.
