Acoustics

Insulation can be useful in controlling the movement of sound in buildings. Acoustics is a scientific term concerning the properties of sound.

There are performance standards to adhere to when designing buildings, such as Building Bulletin 93 for school buildings, Healthcare Technical Memorandum 08-01 for healthcare buildings, and Building Regulations outlined in Approved Document E for England and Wales and Technical Handbooks Section 5 for Scotland. An acoustic engineer should be consulted for guidance on how to insulate building elements to achieve particular acoustic goals and to provide acoustic calculations.
