Luxury Bathrooms: A Smart Investment in Your Home

Luxury Bathrooms: A Smart Investment in Your Home

It is a well-known fact that when buying a home, the two rooms that buyers scrutinize the most are the kitchen and bathrooms. Since other rooms can be improved upon with paint, floor wax or carpeting and perhaps some minor electrical work, an attractive, recently updated kitchen or bathroom is more likely to tip the scales in favour of a sale. If you are planning to upgrade to a luxury bathroom in your current home for a future home sale or for your own enjoyment, you will want to do your research and find a manufacturer of high-quality luxury bathroom fittings who can deliver exactly what you want.

If you are adding a new bathroom to your current home, you will want to choose a sleek design that provides the greatest possible return on your investment, and in many cases it will make sense to upgrade existing bathrooms to ensure a similarly updated and well-appointed look. The right designer will be able to help you do just that.

People adding a new bathroom to their home or upgrading to designer bathrooms have many things to consider before going into a showroom, and it is helpful to envision the desired result before deciding between the options that you have based on space availability, plumbing and other issues. One of the most obvious considerations is what you generally want your designer bathrooms to look like. Do you have a preferred colour scheme? What about a preference for features that will be easy to clean? Do certain types of fixtures appeal to you more than others? Next, consider how your preferences will work with the layout of your current bathroom. To what extent might the existing layout have to change?

Would you be willing and able to consider a more extensive renovation that involves new plumbing and electrical wiring? Will the dimensions of your existing bathroom or planned add-on leave enough space and allow for comfortable placement of fittings and ease of movement between the tub or shower, toilet and sink? All of these questions need to be answered before ordering your luxury bathroom fittings, and the right manufacturer will come to your home, do a walk-through and work with you to develop a design that will work with your preferences as well as any variables that cannot be changed.

Once you have gone through this initial phase of the design process, you will be able to decide on the features that you would like to include in your renovated bathroom. Popular features right now include basin-style sinks on vanity bases with additional shelving or drawers, wide sinks and mirrors which can be shared by couples in master baths, free-standing tubs, recessed spaces for shampoo and other toiletries, stainless steel fixtures and white or off-white fittings against a dark background.

If you have limited cabinetry in your current bathroom or exposed plumbing which you would like to conceal, certain luxury bathroom fittings by Kohler and others can solve both problems in the form of an equally attractive and useful vanity base which also will also make the best possible use of the space. Shower cubicles can also be an excellent space-saving feature which makes for easier cleaning. For larger bathrooms, separate shower cubicles and free-standing tubs are an attractive way to break up a large space, and windows with a view of the treetops can make the bath experience even more relaxing. Finally, you will want to make certain that the installers are familiar with the manufacturer’s products and support services. A reputable designer will recommend knowledgeable installers who will typically bring in their own electricians and plumbers as needed for your bathroom renovation project.

Whether your home is ten years old or 100 years old, adding a new bathroom or upgrading to designer bathrooms is one of the best investments you can make in your home. The right luxury bathroom fittings will make your daily routine more enjoyable, impress your guests and put you in a favourable position to sell your home should that day ever come. You might even find that certain space-saving features are more attractive than the ones you already have. Make sure that the designer you choose can offer the best value for the design you have chosen, and your new designer bathroom will delight your family and guests for many years to come.

Sound Testing Services in London

Sound Testing Services in London

The UK capital is a massive city containing in excess of 5 million dwellings, many sharing wall and floor partitions. In this noisy environment it is essential that good acoustic design and construction is incorporated into all new and refurbishment projects along with sound testing for London.

To try and help enforce good acoustic design principles and pre-completion sound testing was introduced in July 2003 to comply with new Approved Document E. The new building regulations required 10% of each party wall/floor construction type to be tested on all new build and conversion properties.

We have undertaken thousands of sound tests on converted properties in London and in our experience if the partitions haven’t received any acoustic upgrades the wall and floor partitions – as per the plate below) normally achieve approx. 30-35dB for airborne sound and 68-74dB for Impact Sound. Obviously these figures fall well short of the required 43dB & 64dB as stipulated in Approved Document E. Also, it’s worth taking into account that sound doubles every 10dB, so 30-35dB for airborne sound and 68-74dB for impact sound would be massive failures and careful acoustic design and construction upgrades would be required.

Detail 1: Existing Floor Partitions (rated at approx. 30-35dB)

Using our many years’ experience in building acoustics, we are able to offer a total design and testing solutions for new and conversion projects. We help many architects and top 10 construction companies with their acoustic design requirements from the largest developments containing hundreds of units through a pair of semi-detached dwellings. We always endeavour to find the most cost effective solution.

If it’s a conversion project and you are unsure of the floor/wall construction, we often recommend our ‘sample sound testing service. Firstly, we visit site and undertake sample sound testing to at least one floor and wall partition, is consists of at least one airborne and impact test to the proposed dividing floor and an airborne test to the dividing wall. Once the sound test results are established we can then offer a targeted acoustic design solution to achieve a successful sound test in London in compliance with Approve Document E.

Once the construction works are underway we can undertake a site visit to check that the installation teams are installing the acoustic materials as per manufacturer’s guidelines, thus avoiding crucial onsite mistakes during the construction phase. In our experience a sound test failure is often caused by poor workmanship rather than the actual acoustic design. The site survey helps to further reduce the chance of a London sound test failure.
Sometimes, there are more technical issues such as noise flanking which may require more detailed diagnosis and invasive investigation, such as the removal of some of the wall and floor partitions. In many cases a large amount of noise flanking is due to serious design faults, e.g. the use of lightweight blocks in the construction of the walls in an apartment development. This allows the sound to travel along the walls and floors from dwelling to dwelling. In many cases a wall and/or floor partition may have a very good acoustic construction; however the partition will still fail as the sound is travelling along a noise flanking path.

We often get asked what ate the main reasons for sound test failures on new and existing dwellings, in our experience they are:

a. Where lightweight blocks used in the inner envelope construction. This allows sound to travel along the lightweight blocks both vertically and horizontally from dwelling to dwelling.
b. Through dividing floors if there is lack of mass or acoustic insulation has not been installed and/or or direct fixing of plasterboard and/or floorboards to joists without using a resilient ceiling construction and/or floating floor.
c. Through Windows if they are no double glazed or have secondary glazing as a minimum
d. Through Fixtures & fittings such as light switches, telephone outlets and TV cable ducts where they sit back to back against the adjoining property.
e. Along structural joints along the perimeter wall and floor joint. These areas should be  filled with acoustic mastic)
f. Structural steels that run through one property to the other without material isolation, i.e. plasterboard is screwed directly to the steel offering little or no noise isolation.

There are many quick and simple solutions to improve the acoustic performance of dividing wall partitions. One of the easiest wall solutions is to install a 70mm met-sec partition in front of the existing wall abutting dwellings. Firstly leave approx. 25mm gap between the back of the met-sec and the existing wall. Then install 50mm acoustic wool to the inside of the met-sec and add two layers of soundboard to the outside of the met-sec frame, ensuring all boards are properly lapped and the perimeter joints are filled with acoustic mastic. Also make sure that the sockets etc. are placed in a different position to the sockets on the other side of the wall.

To reduce airborne and impact sound transmission through the floor, one simple solution is to add a timber baton to the bottom of the joists. Then add an acoustic resilient hanger.

To the inside of the newly formed void add an AW 25 Isowool acoustic insulation. To the underside of the hangers install 2 x 12.5mm layers of soundboard. Allow for the correct laps in the plasterboard. Add AW100 Isowool to the centre joist void and to the top of the joists install 18mm flooring. To the top of the flooring add a 4mm resilient matt.

The above Air and Wall solutions should comply with Approved Document Air for you Sound Testing in London. Whatever the problem we can usually find an acoustic solution that will help you achieve Building Regulation compliance  If you have a project that’s needs acoustic design advice or needs sound insulation testing then please contact us at: info@aptsoundtesting.co.uk or phone us directly on 0203 669 2650 and we should be able to offer you an expedient acoustic solution to help you achieve practical completion.

UK Universities Targeted by Cyber Thieves

UK Universities Targeted by Cyber Thieves
British universities are being hit by hundreds of successful cyber-attacks every year, reports the Times.  More than 1,152 intrusions into UK university networks had been recorded in 2016-17, it said. And thieves were interested in defence technologies as well as research into novel fuels and better batteries.

The newspaper used data gleaned from Freedom of Information requests to gauge the extent of cyber-attacks on the educational institutions.

The requests revealed that Oxford, Warwick and University College London had all suffered breaches that sought to steal research data and documents.

The newspaper said thieves were either stealing on behalf of foreign powers or looking to get at valuable data they could sell to the highest bidder. The number of recorded attacks had doubled in two years, it added.

“Universities drive forward a lot of the research and development in the UK. Intellectual property takes years of knowhow and costs a lot,” Carsten Maple, director of cyber-security at the University of Warwick, told the paper. “If someone can get that very quickly, that’s good for them.”

Mr Maple said the digital defences deployed by UK universities needed to be tightened up.

The information received by the Times revealed attackers used many different techniques to extract either data or cash from the UK’s higher education organisations. Ransomware, phishing and denial of service attacks, which bombard sites with data, had all been employed against universities, it found.

Some organisations were being hit by more than 1,000 attacks a month, it said. “It is no surprise that universities are suffering from an increase in security breaches,” said Dr Anton Grashion, head of security practice at Cylance. “Their network environments are some of the most challenging networks to manage, with usually smaller security and staffing budgets.”

The open networks many universities ran made them a “tempting and easily accessible” target, he added.

How to Reduce Noise Flanking on Your Project.

How to Reduce Noise Flanking on Your Project.
Flanking noise or flanking sound as it’s commonly known is defined as sound from a source room that is not transmitted via the separating building element e.g. the wall or floor partition. The sound is transmitted indirectly via paths such as external walls, windows, doors and internal corridors. The term ‘Sound insulation’ describes the reduction of sound that passes between two spaces separated by a dividing element, such as a wall or floor partition. The sound energy passes through the dividing element (direct transmission) and through the surrounding structure (indirect or flanking transmission).

One of the most popular reasons for excessive flanking noise and potential sound test failure is when the inner leaf of the perimeter wall is built with light weight blocks. This can act like a large snare drum allowing the sound to travel straight up and across the walls from one flat to the other. Even if you have used an acoustically robust wall and/or floor partition the sound insulation testing may still fail. If you have used lightweight blocks in your onsite construction and the building fails the sound test, you may need to construction independent internal plasterboard lining throughout the inner perimeter wall, this should isolate the lightweight blocks and ensure the flanking path is minimized between dwellings.

Invariably, sound will usually find the weakest link through construction materials and this is usually via material flanking. For instance, construction workers sometimes run the inner envelope walls straight through the whole building elevation. Unfortunately, Even though acoustically robust walls may be pulled of the inner envelope, it doesn’t stop sound travelling from unit to unit via the continuous (lightweight) wall behind. In his instance the envelope wall should stop and return along the dividing wall partition providing a cavity or sound insulation break in the envelope wall and between flats.

Typical Flanking Sound Transmission Pathways are as follows:

• Dividing Ceiling Partitions – Above and Through the Ceiling Space (where an adequate acoustic break has not been carried on through the ceiling void)
• Dividing Floor Partitions – Through Floor and Floor Joist Space (if insulation has not been installed or direct fixing to joists without a drop ceiling below the partition under test)
• Shared Structural Building Components – Floor Boards, Floor Joists, Continuous Drywall Partitions, Continuous Concrete Floors, and Cement Block Walls.
• Through Structural Steel (structural steel beams are often a major cause of noise transmission as plasterboard is often fixed directly to the steel without sound breaks)
• Plumbing Chases – Junctures Between the Walls & Floor Slab Above or at the Exterior Wall Juncture (this should be filed with mortar etc. to add mass to this weakened area)
• Through Windows (if they are no double glazed or have secondary glazing as a minimum)
• Fixtures & Outlets – Light Switches, Telephone Outlets, and Recessed Lighting Fixtures (if penetrations have been cut back to back with the opposite dwelling under test)
• Structural Joints – Perimeter Joints at Wall & Floor, Through Wall & Ceiling Junctures (these should be filled with acoustic mastic)
• Around the End of the Partition Through the Adjacent Wall (acoustic mastic should be used to seal this junction)

To reduce the chance of sound insulation test failure, it is imperative that flanking transmission is considered at the design stage and any construction detailing is specified to minimise any potential of noise flanking which will downgrade the acoustic performance. Good detailing at the design stage will minimise this effect and optimise the overall levels of acoustic privacy achieved. If designing for residential units, design advice on flanking details must be followed to maximise the possibility of achieving the specified acoustic performance. It is very important that the design advice is followed during the onsite construction; otherwise the site sound insulation values may not meet the performance criteria required and subsequent expensive remedial treatment may be required.

One of the easiest ways of dealing with sound flanking issues is to use isolation strips around the perimeter of the partitions at the edges of floors and walls – as per the details below). Acoustic sealant should also be incorporated wherever possible.To improve the chance of a successful sound test and reduce the chance of noise flanking you will need to ensure that you allow for the following 5 acoustic design considerations, they are:

a. Mass
b. Isolation
c. Absorption
d. Resilience
e. Stiffness

We can advise on all types of acoustic design, whether it’s accomplished during initial construction or during a refurbishment/renovation project. We also undertake UKAS accredited sound testing providing a ‘one stop’ solution for all your acoustic requirements.

Promoting Your Business through Internet Marketing & SEO

Promoting Your Business through Internet Marketing and SEO

Business owners, have you Googled yourself lately? If not, do it now. Go on, type in the name of your business and see what comes up. If the name of your business is Joe’s Garage, then your search will likely bring up Joe’s car repairs (Sunderland), Joe’s Auto Body Care (Chester le Street), Joe’s Automotive Ltd (Newcastle), Joe’s Car Repairs (North East) and perhaps also a smattering of like-named businesses in the UK. Which business is yours, and how do you get people in your area to come to your shop and not to some other Joe who does auto repairs?

Well, you don’t need to come up with a more unique name for your business, but you do need to learn how to use search engine optimisation, or SEO, to make your company stand out and for promoting your business to the vehicle owners who are most likely to come to you for repairs. Following are three ways in which SEO can draw interested clients to your website and, ultimately, your shop.

Keyword Research
Your target audience is searching online with specific keywords and key phrases that are relevant to your business, whatever that may be. You need to know what those keywords and key phrases are, and Internet marketing companies have the ability to research that information for their clients. Tap into that resource.

SEO Rankings
The major search engines rank websites, in part, according to how prominently certain keywords figure in the website’s content. More specific keyword searches will set your business apart from the competition and result in higher rankings, which translates to greater visibility for your website and, ultimately, more sales.

Social Media
Yet another opportunity for enhancing your online presence is through social media. If you already have a website, then you should also have a Facebook page and Twitter feed. Even businesses with stale websites are able to keep in touch with current and prospective clients by posting and Tweeting on a regular basis and interacting with their target audience. If you know which keywords your clients are using to find businesses like yours, then it pays to make use of them in your posts and elsewhere. Best of all, your Facebook page, Tumblr account and whatever else you’re using to stay in touch with clients get their own separate rankings in search results. In other words, one can keep you front and centre even when the other does not.

As impressive or even overwhelming as they may seem, these considerations are simply scratching the surface when it comes to Internet marketing and SEO. Direct Submit Internet Marketing Services can do all this and much more to increase traffic to your website and generate interest in your company.
