Polarwall - insulating concrete formwork

Soundproofing

Everyone can expect some noise from our neigbours, however sometimes noise can become a real problem. We all want to relax and unwind in our homes without listening to whats happening next door.

Polarwall has therefore developed its 'Acoustic Wall' to cut down the noise travel through an adjoining or party wall between houses. Using the inherent mass of the concrete enables Polarwall to be a highly effective barrier.

Polarwall has been tested in both on-site conditions and through rigorous desk based assessments. In both situations the acoustic wall achieves sound insulation levels well in excess of the current requirements laid down under Part E of the approved Document 2003 of the Building Regulations.
