walls, and both airborne and impact sound insulation for floor-ceiling assemblies. Partitions and floor-ceiling assemblies constructed in accordance with the diagrams shown herein are considered to have Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings and Impact Insulation Class (IIC) ratings of 50 as shown.
Impact noise is created by knocking sounds or walking on party floors (high heels on laminate are particularly guilty!) and can be controlled through structural isolation such as adding a resilient mineral wool or rubber layer between the floor deck and the floor structure.
When building new party walls and floors it's usually necessary to have. When someone drops a book or stomps their feet, the ensuing sound is called impact noise. Impact noise makes direct contact with the floor and is transmitted via a vibration pathway of the floor structure.

As mentioned previously, without this, the addition of any mass will have very little effect on impact noise. Use acoustic insulation between the timber joists to eliminate any sound resonating and .There are two types of sound tests: Airborne Tests – These tests are carried out on party walls and floors/ceilings between airborne test measures levels of sound transmitted through the air.
We use a loudspeaker that produces white noise on one side of the partition, and measure with a decibel meter on the other side how much sound is lost through the partition.
