Robust Details

The Robust Details Certification Scheme is a compliance scheme for sound insulation performance of walls and floors in new-build houses and apartments. The scheme certifies that certain constructions are capable of being used as an alternative to sound insulation testing, to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of Approved Document E.

A Robust Detail is a separating wall or floor construction that is capable of consistently exceeding the performance standards given in Approved Document E, is practical to build on site and is reasonably tolerant of workmanship. Sound insulation testing of a number of examples of a construction is carried out before it can be approved as a Robust Detail. Robust Details Limited employs acoustic consultants to carry out inspections to monitor performance. Visual inspections are carried out on a sample of properties during construction, and sound insulation testing is also carried out on a sample of completed constructions.
