Acoustics testing

Tech Lab’s extensive engineering acoustic facilities include an anechoic chamber, a hemi-anechoic chamber and two reverberation rooms, all fitted with Brüel & Kjær microphones. We offer a range of testing services to measure acoustic performance and optimise the acoustic behaviour of products and materials.

Our facilities can be used to measure

  • Transmission loss and sound reduction index of structures
  • Transmission loss (Rw) of walls and doors
  • Transmission loss (Rw) of windows
  • Sound absorption and insulation
  • Sound power
  • Audio equipment

Standards

We test to a range of ISO standards, including ISO 354, ISO 10140 / ISO 717-1 / AS 1191, ISO 3741, ISO 3744 and ISO 389 for audio equipment.

We can advise appropriate standards to test against, or undertake developmental testing that doesn’t adhere to a particular standard.
