Noise can be one quick way for neighbours to fall out – so making sure party walls provide effective sound insulation is super important.

With approximately 1,000 complaints per day, noise from neighbours is a huge issue for UK homewoners.

While keeping noisy parties or loud building work are things to negotiate, the party walls between properties should provide effective sound insulation.

Our guidance on the subject provides detailed calculations of the sound reduction of our aircrete blocks, Robust Details for various wall construction to meet Part E of the Building Regulations.  We also have a video demonstrating the construction of Party Walls to provide the required sound and thermal insulation performance – view it here.
