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.
The Floating Acoustic Floors range from Hush Acoustics’ has demonstrated compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations and the Robust Details Scheme.
The flooring range consists of structural boards and overlay boards. The structural boards are compatible with a range of Hush systems and are developed with easy installation in mind.
The overlay boards are designed to be used in a myriad of residential and commercial settings.
