The FIS Acoustic Verification Scheme was created to enable members to verify acoustic tests against an agreed criterion and a methodology to present these to market in a consistent and transparent manner.
FIS teamed up with Cundall Acoustics to develop an acoustic test certificate verification scheme. The scheme takes test reports and assessments and runs a series of checks to verify the certificates are genuine.
“At Style, we have always taken great pride in the acoustic integrity of our moveable wall solutions,” said Mike Fine, Style’s director for the Midlands.
“At long last, we now have independent evidence to support our acoustic ratings, with more products tested and verified than anyone else in the UK operable wall sector.
“We are also the only company with a fully automatic system that has been approved by Cundall Acoustics on behalf of the FIS as an independent acoustic consultant, and also the only company who have a continuously hinged sliding folding wall tested above 45dB.
“It means architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user customers can choose our moveable walls with confidence, knowing that they will perform to the very highest standards.”
FIS is the not for profit representative body for the £10 billion finishes and interiors sector in the UK. The organisation exists to support its members, improve safety, minimise risk, enhance productivity and drive innovation in the sector.
