Low Frequency Impact Noise

Low Frequency Impact Noise

There is significant evidence showing that impact (ie footfall) noise can be a serious problem in dwellings even if the floor has met the Part ‘E’ minimum performance standard for impact sound insulation.  An ANC working group is investigating this to establish an appropriate way of identifying this problem during testing. They have produced a note on work to date on this subject which you can access here.
