Sound-absorption testing is now offered by BSRIA as part of its UKAS-accredited services. Tests are carried out in accordance with BS EN ISO 354:2003 and BS EN 11654:1997. BSRIA provides acoustic testing to determine the sound-absorption coefficient and rating of sound absorption for a range of materials — including insulation, carpets, wall panels, ceiling tiles and office screens.

Testing is carried out in the BSRIA thermally controlled acoustic facility, a 210 m3 reverberation chamber.

Rebecca Hogg, acoustic consultant, (pictured) who manages the acoustic test facility, said, ‘The UKAS-accredited sound-absorption testing extends our existing acoustic services and provides the customer with the assurance they are getting internationally recognised quality test data. With an increased importance placed on acoustics in the built environment, it is essential that manufacturers, designers and installers have confidence in the acoustic performance data of sound-absorbing materials.’
