About the Test Reports and Disclaimer
Clever Choice Underlays have been tested by Koikas Acoustics Pty Ltd. The purpose of undertaking these impact noise tests was to quantify the acoustic performance of the flooring systems with selected floor coverings in conjunction with the sub-base being
concrete with suspending ceiling. The acoustic ratings provided in this report are indicative and for comparative purposes only.
Tests were conducted in a residential apartment building located in Macquarie Park, NSW. We were advised that the ceiling/floor system between the residential units is constructed with the following materials:
- Approximately 200mm thick concrete slab
- 80-100mm suspended ceiling cavity, and
- 13mm thick plasterboard ceiling
Test results were compared to the acoustic requirements of Part F5 of BCA (Building Codes of Australia), the standards prescribed by the Association of Australian Acoustical Consultants (AAAC) and City of Sydney Council’s DCP 2012 requirements. All measurements were carried out following the guidelines and procedures outlined in AS/NZS ISO 140.7:2006 “Field measurements of impact sound insulation of floors” with the rating determined as per AS ISO 717.2-2004 “Rating of sound insulation in buildings and of building
Selecting the right Underlay for your purpose is of great importance, it is just as relevant to understand how sound and vibrations travel. Underlay is not the sole determining factor for achieving ultimate acoustic ratings and reduction in transmission of noise.
Acoustic ratings will vary depending on the testing environment/conditions including, materials/structures of the existing ceiling/floor system, room volume, internal layout and workmanship. Even with the same testing environment, acoustic ratings can vary from room to room and so buildings to buildings as no two buildings are identical.
