Airborne and impact noise should be considered when designing all flat roof constructions. The aim of this document is to show that Hush Acoustics are able to design lightweight flat roof constructions which meet a variety of airborne and impact noise requirements.
For advice on the use of Hush FR Roofing Membrane, as part of a system within any project, please contact our experienced technical team on 0151 933 2026 who will be happy to give comprehensive and practical advice to meet with your requirements.
The SRL tests clearly indicate that the use of different materials within a flat roof construction can benefit a building’s acoustic performance. The Hush FR Roofing Membrane used in the tests was shown to significantly improve both airborne and rain impact acoustic performance.
When creating a flat roof solution, airborne and rain impact noise are two considerations that should be placed high on the agenda. This is especially true when designing for education and health sector buildings where indoor acoustic comfort is of particular importance. (More details of performance standards for school buildings are detailed in Building Bulletin 93, and for healthcare buildings in Health Technical Memorandum 08-01: Acoustics.)
Full fitting instructions are supplied with all products and are available to download from the Installation Guides section.
