The Robust Details Scheme measures the ‘resistance to the passage of sound’ in separating walls and floors in new builds.
A Robust Detail is defined by two measures; the first being that any separating floor or wall must consistently demonstrate compliance with the performance standards in the Building Regulations (Document Part E).
This is independently assessed by Robust Details Limited.
Approval also depends on the material being practical to build on site and being reasonably tolerant to workmanship’.
If a material has been designed to Robust Detail standards, PCT does not have to be carried out, as it is deemed to have been produced to a highly specific, quality standard.
