Impact Sound Insulation to BS EN ISO 10140-3 / BS EN ISO 717-2

Sound Absorption to BS EN ISO 354 / BS EN ISO 11654

Sound Absorption of Road Traffic Noise Reducing Devices to BS EN 1793-1

Sound Insulation of Road Traffic Noise Reducing Devices to BS EN 1793-2

Sound Absorption of Railway Noise Reducing Devices to BS EN 16272-1

Sound Insulation of Railway Noise Reducing Devices to BS EN 16272-2

Sound Power to BS EN ISO 3744:2010 / BS EN 60704-2-1:2015

UKAS Accredited Calibration Services

Other traceable standard test services we offer include:

We also offer a broad range of non-standard measurements, diagnostic testing and R&D services including:

Structure borne noise & Vibration prediction

Noise source tracking/localisation

Sound and vibration source characterisation

Transfer path analysis / source path contribution analysis

Noise source rank ordering and treatment

Product noise modelling and auralisation

Vibration testing e.g. with Polytec laser interferometer or Guralp force-feedback accelerometers

Vibration isolator characterisation (dynamic stiffness measurements)

Using our expertise in acoustics and audio research into a wide range of subjects, we are able help companies with various aspects of research and development. We recognise that it is not always possible for companies (whether large or small) to commit large amounts of time or human resources to R&D. As a result we have helped many companies in the past to either improve the audio performance of existing products and also to create new products that help give them a new foothold on the market. In the past we have helped, loudspeaker and amplifier manufacturers, fire alarm system designers, algorithm developers and many more improve their business using our research experience.Read more...
