Acoustic barriers are designed to significantly reduce noise transmission through walls, floors, and ceilings, catering to the modern demands for quieter living and working spaces.
Many Irish homes suffer from inadequate sound insulation, allowing everyday noise to easily pass through thin walls and floors, disturbing peace and comfort.
For homeowners with high-level noise activities, such as home cinemas and music studios, soundproofing becomes essential to maintain neighbourly harmony.
Soundproofing isn't just a courtesy, it's a requirement. With Ireland's Building Regulations updated (link to Technical Document E Sound) in December 2014 and January 2015, adherence to sound insulation standards is mandatory:
Minimum Sound Insulation Standards: A new benchmark for reasonable resistance to sound.
Reverberation Management: New considerations for common building areas to control echo.
Pre-completion Testing: Mandatory acoustic testing to ensure compliance before occupancy.
For Existing Structures: Enhancements to sound insulation in existing buildings, keeping the peace without a complete overhaul.
For New Constructions: Integrating soundproofing into the design from the ground up, for quieter and more serene environments.
Soundproofing is not limited to residential spaces; educational institutions, commercial offices, and industrial warehouses also benefit from acoustic barrier installation.
