3.9.2 Ensuring new flooring compliance
How does one adequately assess whether the hard floor surface you intend to lay will not cause a disturbance?
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) sets a standard for impact noise transmission not greater than (Ln,w + CI = 62dB). This is a measure of the noise produced by the hard floor surface. Therefore, the first thing you should do is to request written confirmation from your supplier (together with a copy of a laboratory certificate) confirming that your hard floor surface will meet that standard.
