Rain Noise Test Facility

Rain Noise Test Facility

SRL’s Rain Rig is UKAS accredited for testing the sound generated by rainfall onto building elements, including roof and skylight systems, fully in accordance with BS EN ISO 140-18:2006.

The test consists of water droplets falling from a reservoir at a regulated rate to simulate rainfall onto the sample and noise levels measured inside the rig as per the standard requirements.

The rig has undergone a recent re-build incorporating a permanent working platform on all for sides enabling improved access to aid sample installations.






Samples are fixed to three metal purlins which run the width of the rig, spaced at 1400mm centres. The rig has good access and samples can either be built/fitted on-site or pre-assembled and lowered into place.

There is a false ceiling grid installed giving the option of testing systems with a ceiling if required.
