Get Compliant with our Ceiling Soundproofing Solutions
If you need floor soundproofing that that works towards passing Part E of the Building Regulations, then we can help. Our team can provide advice on the UK soundproofing regulations and on our ceiling soundproofing products and solutions that can be used by both industry experts and non-experts in meeting regulation E requirements for newly constructed and renovated buildings.
For anyone building new homes, we can offer assistance and direction on soundproofing that can be applied to the Robust Details scheme, making it simpler to use the alternative to pre-completion sound testing needed to satisfy Part E of the Building Regulations.
What are the Part E Soundproofing Regulations?
The government has implemented soundproofing regulations with the aim of reducing the impact of noise pollution. These standards are documented in the Approved Document-Part E of the Building Regulations "Resistance to the Passage of Sound", which was implemented in 2003.
The overall goal of these soundproofing legislations is to enhance the acoustic insulation both between and within properties, such as hostels, hotels, and residential homes. The target to reach is a minimum airborne sound of 43 dB and an impact sound of below 64 dB for new builds and conversions. At SoundStop, we make complying Regulation E easier for customers just like you.

Soundproof a Ceiling to Regulation E Standard
The floor ceiling divide is usually the single biggest expense when soundproofing to regulation E standard. It is important to understand that regulation E soundproofing solutions can be achieved in a number of ways and the acoustic solution you ultimately choose may not just be driven by materials cost, but by ease of fitting and by floor ceiling height constraints.
Our ceilings solutions can be used to soundproof a new or existing solid wall, such as a brick stairwell, party walls, and most other walls, with options to dictate the overall performance, depth gain and overall costs.
Regulation E Soundproofing Solutions
Our wall soundproofing solutions exceed the acoustic performance of Regulation E, while also being user-friendly to install (even with limited access), cost-efficient, and space-saving. Every solution has an online calculator that provides precise costs for each option, and they have been rigorously tested by the respective manufacturers with accompanying test results.
GenieClip Ceiling Solutions
This solution provides an impressive level of protection without being overly heavy, and can be upgraded for even greater performance. Easily installed by either a skilled DIYer or a professional, this is an ideal solution for achieving regulation compliance.
LB3 GenieClip Ceiling Solutions
Where Ceiling height loss is an issue we recommend the use of the GenieClip LB3 Ceiling system. It offers a high level of soundproofing, can be installed by a competent DIYer and has options to increase the soundproofing performance.
Acoustic Hanger Ceiling Solution
An excellent solution for those who wish to retain their existing ceiling, whilst cutting down considerably on the mess. Using a hanger or bracket system to create a ‘floating-ceiling’ that delivers a good level of soundproofing. We recommend someone with expert level DIY skills, or a professional, undertake the project.
