All public premises must be equipped with systems that meet the required demands for acoustic sealing of buildings in accordance with the Approved Document E.
For structure-borne sound insulation in which pipes must be isolated from the structure by appropriate acoustic insulation material, the responsible person for a building must source a range of systems and solutions that can achieve the desired acoustic control.
Acoustic Fire Management Explained
When airborne sound insulation is necessary to reduce sound transmission from room to room, a building will require a range of fire stopping products in order to achieve the sound insulation values and fire ratings needed to ensure the environment is safe, comfortable and secure.
Coated boards and mastic can be used for sealing purposes, but these products need to be stringently tested and approved to ensure that a responsible person or fire stopping consultant has a known basis in which to work.
Where Does the FireArrest App Come In?
At FireArrest, our ground-breaking passive fire protection app has been designed alongside select professionals from the industry to create software that can ensure all acoustic and other fire stopping projects can be undertaken safely, efficiently and collaboratively. What’s more, any fire stopping activity and material can be recorded, allowing full traceability.
The app features a selection of carefully developed features and tools which offer fire stopping professionals the flexibility to communicate and inform colleagues on the progress of any project.
When we began developing the app, we realised that the most critical facet of undertaking a fire stopping project of any size is interaction, efficiency, and collaboration, which is reflected in the software.
