HUSH provides: Economical solutions and comprehensive technical advice. We have a variety of design options including Robust Details solutions. Our acoustic systems are easy to install and are supplied direct to site via our national distribution service.

Acoustic Floating Floors:

Hush supply a complete range of proven acoustic floating floor systems for either concrete or timber floating floors. They are Robust Detail FFT4 compliant for floor structures EFC-1, EFC-2 and EFS-1 and designed to exceed the current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales), Part H (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland). They can be used within refurbishment and new build projects to create a floating floor over concrete and timber or directly over timber joists.

Resilient Flooring Battens and Cradles:

Hush battens are designed as a resilient composite batten that reduces impact sound transmission between separating floors. Designed to exceed the current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales), Part H (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland) and Robust Details FFT1 compliant for floor structures EFC-1, EFC-2 and EFS-1. Hush-Cradles have been designed as a timber batten support with an infinitely adjustable thread, allowing for precise levelling across uneven sub-floors.

Resilient Ceiling & Wall Bars:

Hush-Bars are used to optimise acoustic performance by virtually decoupling the ceiling from the existing joists. Hush-Bar Plus system has been designed as an advanced resilient bar and clip system used to further optimise acoustic performance by mechanical decoupling and creating a more flexible ceiling, whilst being able to support heavier ceiling boards. Compatible with a range of Hush-Systems and designed to exceed the current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales), Part H (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland).

Joist Infills:

Hush-Slab 100 has been developed to reduce airborne sound transmission through timber floating floors, ceilings and separating walls within both new build and refurbishment projects.Hush acoustic slabs are manufactured by a unique process, utilising renewable energy and a sustainable source of raw material.

We also supply Hush-Fill 60 Heavy Pugging is a granular mineral filler specifically designed to meet the required density of 80kgs/m² at the 60mm regulation depth specified within UK Building regulations for sound insulation between timber floor joists on floating floors.

Suspended Metal Frame Ceiling System:

Hush Metal Frame System is an accepted method of creating a decoupled ceiling below an existing joisted or concrete structure. One of the best ways to provide acoustic attenuation where the installation of a lowered ceiling is not a problem.

System Accessories:

Hush also supply a complete range of acoustic accessories including acoustic seals, flanking strips, grommets and isolators

Hush Solar Extra PGR5000
Hush Solar Extra PGR5000 is made from granulated rubber. The granules are treated with a PUR binder and pressed in a mould until reaching the desired specific weight. The cut to size sheets are laminated on one side with a UV and weather protection film with aluminium insert, which prevents plasticizer migration and thus the embrittlement of the roofing material.

Hush Absorbers
Reverberation and in severe cases, turning into echoes, are a common problem in many domestic and public places. Mid to High frequency sounds (in most cases) speech within spaces such as classrooms, multipurpose community and sports halls, offices, bars, restaurants and cafés can often cause disruptive and discomforting noise problems. Many places are increasingly using acoustic sound absorbers to resolve their noise problems and to improve their buildings sound quality.Hush can provide acoustic absorber panels in a variety of stylish finishes. Whilst creating a tailored interior design, the acoustic absorber will provide a practical and efficient way of dampening sound reverberation within rooms, halls, corridors and almost any other internal space.The Hush Absorber 50a is a Class A Absorber which consists of fabric wrapped 50mm thick acoustic foam, with built in support frames to allow for bracket fixing to provide an air void behind the absorber for enhanced acoustic performance.The Hush abosorber panels comply to BB93 standards for school acoustics and building regulationsThis download contains 4 Generic Model Familes in 16 different colours and numerous size combinations:Hush Absorber 30Hush Absorber 50Hush Absorber 50A Wall basedHush Absorber 50A Ceiling based Generic Models

Social Housing; To provide Accommodation for those on Low incomes

October 2018

However, rather than building properties for social rent, there are huge concerns with housing associations across the UK who are developing property for private sales or rent, rather than providing homes for those who are in need. Recent studies showed that out of all of the so-called social housing developments being built, that there are few that have actually been made available for social rent.

Socially rented homes are typically available to vulnerable families at around 50% of market value but the Government has prioritised the building of ‘affordable’ homes for which rents can be charged at up to 80 per cent of market value. In many areas of the UK, these rents are not genuinely affordable for people on low incomes.

In the wake of the Grenfell tower tragedy, we learn that many councils are bulldozing the homes of those in need to make way for luxury tower blocks, leaving the facility of social housing in London in crisis. Over 200 households who were affected by the blaze have still not been given a permanent home. Many are still living in emergency or temporary accommodation a year on. And to add to these figures, 2 million households in England are considered to be in social housing. Six London authorities were among the top 10 councils with the biggest shortfall of social housing, with areas including Brighton, Blackpool and Strood in Kent also struggling. 1.15 million households were on waiting lists last year, with only 290,000 homes made available, leaving a national shortfall of more than 800,000 homes.

But does making these homes affordable mean to use cheap, under performing materials, poor workmanship or poorly implemented designs?

Many of these Londoners face increasing rents and deteriorating living conditions. With numerous of these 2 million households experiencing poor service and neglect. An article published by Shelter found that 48% of families in social housing who reported issues about poor or unsafe conditions, felt ignored or were refused help. Noise issues, found to be the number 1 complaint.

Poor acoustics are significantly impactful on the overall environment of our homes, offices and general buildings. We can all appreciate that excessive noise can be a major nuisance. However, even at lower levels, it can affect our attention spans, increase stress levels and can cause negative effects on our lives and our general well-being.

Acoustic insulation can make a significant impact in reducing sound in homes and commercial environments when done properly. There are many situations that it can be useful for, including dampening sound reverberation (sound generated by hard surfaces which allow noise to bounce back and reverberate) preventing noise from affecting other rooms or surrounding buildings, reducing the noise from road, rail or air traffic and even the weather, such as wind or rain. Good acoustic insulation can also minimise sounds from central heating, ventilation and air conditioning units.
Although Building regulations have now been changed to include the requirement for pre-completion acoustic tests, demonstrating that the sound insulation measured on site, meets with the required standards, we are still seeing many properties that are under performing acoustically.

Some say this has improved since these requirements came into place, however Pre – 2003, the Building Regulations Part E (Sound insulation of dwellings) stated that in order to show compliance with the regulations, you need to show that separating floor and wall designs would provide adequate sound insulation. But this unfortunately, did not address the problem of poor workmanship or the actual implementation of those designs. Studies have shown that a large proportion of new dwellings failed to meet the required standards.

The Grenfell tragedy has exposed the reality of the state of public services, their underlying culture, public investment and the brutal economising that saves money not lives. It brings into question the system of commercially driven obtainment of the social housing regeneration over recent years. And mostly challenges the cost-cutting agenda dominating public policy.

We need to invest in safe, decent social housing that is affordable for everyone. Hush Acoustics have designed an extensive range of products and systems to cater for all problems and that can be used within the design stages of a building or even as a solution to existing issues in older buildings.

Rob Crampton, Hush Acoustics Managing director gives his opinion on social housing developments:

“We have worked on many new build social housing developments whether to the minimum standards of the Building Regs, to Robust Details parameters or when the Code for Sustainable Homes Document was in force and we have found that when newly built, Social Housing is done to a relatively high standard. There seem to be little issues as long as the specification and installation of the required acoustic systems are correct. We have worked on the design of these buildings alongside the design team, the architect, the client and the acoustic consultant to specify the required material ensuring they are built to exceed the required standard.

The main issues we have faced in the social housing sector, are when the buildings are older and therefore haven’t been built fit for purpose for what they are being used for.

We are seeing more families being shoehorned into small existing properties which can cause issues acoustically. We have also seen a significant increase in noisy neighbour complaints in social housing. Paper thin walls and poor acoustics through floors in existing houses and flats are causing social unrest, complaints and sometimes worse”

“As a country we need to work harder to improve living conditions for those in this type of property. Councils and housing trusts need to work with companies such as Hush Acoustics to create affordable solutions as and when these properties become vacant to ensure the issue doesn’t continue for the next occupants”

Hush Acoustics feel it is imperative that Government money be made more available and a specific budget be put together to improve the acoustic performance of the separating floors and walls within these buildings.

Improving the acoustic performance will improve the living conditions for the occupants of the houses and will also reduce emotional and mental health problems that can be triggered be noisy houses. It is so important that tenants are listened to and we need to collectively ensure that housing policies are driven more by public interest and not by the market.

We are doing our upmost to educate architects, specifiers, builders and home owners on the importance of good acoustics in order to stop the increasing figures of noise complaints within these residential buildings.

Brewery use Hush Sound Insulation at Sake In Cambridgeshire

October 2018

Hush Acoustics were approached to help acoustically treat the floors within the visitors centre of the first Sake Brewery in the UK. The concern was excessive impact noise from the busy areas through the floors. The Hush floating flooring product range was used and the following case study explains more about this prestigious development.
The Hashimoto family are bringing the first UK Dojima Sake Brewery to the beautiful, historic gardens of Fordham Abbey Estate in Cambridgeshire. The Sake Brewery was founded 600 years ago in Osaka and will be a fantastic cultural addition to the stunning Georgian Abbey.

The Brewery, along with Visitor Centre, Café and Shop are the first plans in a series of developments planned for the estate, in an effort to bring more culture and new uses for the 75 acre historic estate, to be experienced by visitors.

This first stage of developments will be open to the public in Autumn 2018, with the Brewery already starting their testing in April this year.

Our Hush Panel 28 was specified for use within the recently constructed Visitor Centre, which was provided as the acoustic overlay flooring treatment. The Visitor centre will have a café above it therefore our Hush panel 28 was selected to help control the impact noise from this busy environment.

Hush Panel 28 has been designed to exceed the current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales), Part H (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland) throughout the UK. Hush’s historic and market-leading reputation was one of the main reasons that the Hush product range was selected for this development. Being the original and oldest specialist manufacturer of acoustic materials was imperative to ensure the best advice and the correct product was selected.

We worked with Alinda Barua from SCABAL Architects (Studio Cullinan and Buck Architects Ltd) to meet this required specification. An excellent working relationship developed between the architect and the Hush Technical team, which is headed by David Holder.

We look forward to visiting when it’s open to sample a bit of the Sake (and our work of course)!
