Acoustic specification made easy by FLOORSCAN

Specifying the correct system to satisfy your acoustic requirements in residential building projects is easier than ever with the launch of Floorscan Acoustics’ new online Product Specifier tool.

For residential, domestic properties – whether new build, conversion, timber or concrete construction – Floorscan’s simple tool will guide you to correct acoustic specification.

With 25 years’ experience in the acoustic industry, Floorscan has introduced Floorscan Regulation Details (FRD). This is a catalogue of their tried and tested systems which achieve and exceed the requirements of Part E of the Building Regulations. Whether you or your client are looking for a cost effective or high performance solution, Floorscan have the FRD to suit your requirements.

The system Specifier takes the user through just a few stages to arrive at the correct system recommendations. After selecting the type of application – either a wall or floor/ceiling application – there are three or four simple questions to answer, such as whether it is a new build or conversion project, and a few simple details about your project, before your system options appear.

Each FRD system page contains a back catalogue of accredited site test data with ability for you or client to download at the click of a button. The system page also contains a bespoke calculations tool for that particular system, where your project dimensions can be simply entered to produce a comprehensive quotation for all products required for a bill of quantities, a tender or to order your products there and then. Simply download your quotation or add to cart and complete your purchase.

Simon Donald at Floorscan Acoustics said: “We have created the new website to provide our clients with what we feel is everything they need for their acoustic requirements on a project. The three things that we are asked for every day at Floorscan is the correct system specification, test data to back this up and ultimately a quotation to supply products within that system. The new site simply allows our client to access all of this info themselves 24/7. It is essentially our business within a website.”

Floorscan provides soundproofing materials for residential and domestic applications. Their solutions for floors, walls and ceilings meets the requirements of Approved Document E of the Building Regulations, Robust Detail and BB93, with its fully qualified team able to advise on any of these specific areas.

Simon adds: “We feel that in this day and age making things simple and accessible is what the industry demands, and that is what this website is about. We are giving our clients information at the click of a button for when they need it, but we are always still able to help over the phone or on site whenever our clients need us.”
