Sound Solutions With British Gypsum

17th Jul 2017

British Gypsum is pleased to announce the launch of its new two-day ‘Sound Solutions’ course, responding to a growing demand for tradespeople to install remedial solutions to improve the sound insulation within the home.

More than 25 per cent of the UK adult population is bothered with noise from neighbours, either through the walls or floors. This can create a devastating effect for homeowners on their health and well-being. British Gypsum’s new course has been designed specifically with tradespeople in mind, teaching both practical skills and technical knowledge of acoustic theory. It aims to equip installers with the skills to address the most common noise nuisance complaints from homeowners.

To begin with, the course details the importance of Health and Safety including safe systems of work and risk assessments; reaffirming how implementing an effective safety programme is crucial when carrying out this type of task. Next, it helps develop a basic understanding of acoustics and how this can affect homeowners from unwanted noise from adjoining properties. Finally, and most importantly, the majority of the course involves building the remedial system solutions within British Gypsum’s purpose-built practical areas at its Technical Academies. The practical hands-on detailing and understanding of the plasterboards that are used are important factors of the course.

The course will be delivered through the company’s national network of Technical Academies. Over the past 50 years, British Gypsum has delivered industry-leading training and has conducted over 500,000 days of training since opening its first Training Academy in 1966.

British Gypsum has a wide range of courses to offer from plastering and jointing systems to wall lining and ceiling systems. The company also offers bespoke courses for employers challenging employees with new and difficult tasks.
