CMS ACOUSTICS Reaches Heights Of Sound Control At BT Tower Refurbishment

Regupol 4515 Eco, the high performance yet competitively priced impact sound solution from CMS Acoustics, has been installed at The Heights, Bedford, a conversion of the former BT Tower office block into apartments. Specialist subcontractor, Westbury Carpets installed Regupol 4515 Eco to achieve cost effective Part E compliance when converting the commercial premises into dwellings.

Composed of recycled rubber crumb and cork, Regupol 4515 Eco is a versatile acoustic underlay and widely specified for residential developments. A highly sustainable product, it offers zero Global Warming Potential (GWP) and zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), boasting no environmental impact during the manufacturing process.

Due for completion in April 2011, the BT Tower refurbishment is part of a wider improvement programme to regenerate Bedford’s famous embankment by development experts, Birmingham Properties Group. A mixture of 109 private residential and social housing properties, The Heights required a cost effective impact sound system that could be installed quickly and easily in all apartments within the 13 storey building.

As the construction programme scheduled installation of the acoustic underlay on a floor-by-floor basis, Westbury Carpets needed a manufacturer that could fulfil a large quantity order and deliver the material to site at the required intervals. With the ability to offer next day delivery nationwide on stock items, CMS Acoustics supplied 3,000m² of 3mm Regupol 4515 Eco over a number of weeks.

A flexible specification, Regupol 4515 Eco is compatible for use with both concrete and timber based constructions. The impact sound solution also delivers effective acoustic performance under a wide range of floor finishes, which in this instance included carpet and ceramic tiles. Furthermore, supplied in standard thicknesses of 3mm and 4.5mm, Regupol 4515 Eco effectively keeps construction heights to a minimum, crucial in maintaining floor to ceiling heights in building renovations.

Roger Campbell, Westbury Carpets, commented: “CMS Acoustics has been extremely flexible and supplied Regupol 4515 Eco to accommodate the overall build programme. Furthermore, its specialist technical team provided professional advice enabling us to specify Regupol 4515 Eco with the confidence that Part E guidelines would be met regardless of the final floor finish in the apartments.”

Available exclusively nationwide through CMS Acoustics, the UK’s largest provider of acoustic solutions, Regupol 4515 Eco offers an effective method of sound insulation by attenuating impact sound at source. The acoustic underlay is available in rolls of 20m and 12m.

Paul Absolon, technical director, CMS Acoustics, concluded: “When specifying an acoustic underlay, a key consideration for developers of multi-storey refurbishments is the ease of installation and handling combined with guaranteed impact sound control. Regupol 4515 Eco is supplied in easy to handle rolls and is quick and simple to install. As with all acoustic solutions in our portfolio, Regupol 4515 Eco has been rigorously tested over time, demonstrating its ability to offer superior sound insulation for the duration of the installation without the risk of ageing or deformation.”
