BSRIA delighted to announce UKAS accreditation for sound absorption testingAugust 2017

BSRIA is delighted to announce it has extended its scope of UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) accreditation to include sound absorption testing in accordance with BS EN ISO 354:2003 and BS EN 11654:1997.

BSRIA provides acoustic testing to determine the sound absorption coefficient and rating of sound absorption for a range of materials including: insulation, carpets, wall panels, ceiling tiles and office screens.

The sound absorption testing further extends BSRIA’s UKAS accredited acoustic testing services, which also include determination of sound power levels in accordance with BS EN ISO 3741:2010 and BS EN 12102:2013. Testing is carried out in the BSRIA thermally controlled acoustic facility, which is a 210m3 reverberation chamber.

Rebecca Hogg, Acoustic Consultant, who manages the acoustic test facility, said:

“The UKAS accredited sound absorption testing extends out existing acoustic services and provides the customer with the assurance they are getting internationally recognised quality test data. With an increased importance placed on acoustics in the built environment, it is essential that manufacturers, designers and installers have confidence in the acoustic performance data of sound absorbing materials.”

The UKAS assessor said:

“The laboratory has an excellent facility for the sound absorption measurements.”

UKAS is the sole national accreditation body recognised by government to assess, against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services. Accreditation by UKAS demonstrates the competence, impartiality and performance capability of these evaluators.
