All I have to offer are the soundinsulation tests that we executed in TU Eindhoven alas they have never been officially released. Basically they have been superseded by the recent test done in Germany. Both tests have their anomalies though. The German one has relatively low performance in the low frequency region I expect due to the SB wall structure with wood studs touching both plaster surfaces, which would seriously downgrade the low frequency performance. Which means that I think the test is quite accurate but the tested SB sample is not as good as it could have been.

In order to avoid testing what has allready been tested before we would really appréciate that all of you who have been involved in (or are aware of) official tests réalised in any European country let us know. They need to be certified tests so we can try to get them validated here in France also. This could save us a lot of money and speed up the process. We are willing to pay for the test results if they are accepted by our (official) french partners.
