ROCKWOOL has announced the introduction of a new ‘Acoustic Standards in Schools’ CPD for architects.

The CPD explains the science behind acoustics, the latest building regulations, best practice guidance on acoustics and explores the most appropriate sound insulation solutions for education environments.

Product Manager at ROCKWOOL Ltd, Paul Barrett expresses the importance of good acoustics in schools as excessive and unwanted noise is known to have a detrimental effect on academic performance in the learning environment.

“ROCKWOOL has created the CPD to help ensure that architects are aware of the issues and understand how stone wool insulation can provide a range of solutions that will last the lifetime of the building,” he adds.

In 2003, the Department of Education and Skills, introduced acoustic performance standards for new schools under the Building Regulations, Building Bulletin 93 (BB93).

Insulation material choice plays a bit part in meeting the acoustic requirements of BB93. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation has good acoustic properties and has been fully tested to meet the demands of today’s legislation, stone wool insulation solutions are proven to reduce ambient, impact and reverberation noise in educational buildings.

ROCKWOOL can offer various solutions, including flat roof insulation with HARDROCK Multi-Fix, external wall insulation, using the REDArt system, internal partitions with ROCKWOOL FLEXI, and internal floor solutions with ROCKWOOL FLEXI and ROCKFLOOR to combat impact noise. Flanking transmission can also be reduced by ROCKWOOL fire protection products.

ROCKWOOL has also recently lunched an acoustic calculator. The free online tool has been designed to provide a simple, reliable and effective way of working out the acoustic performance of insulation installed in walls, floors and roofs.
