JCW Acoustic Supplies takes advice to the trade

WHAT’s the best way of controlling noise in a workspace? What's the best soundproofing system for a project? Part E Building Regs?

JCW, which describes itself as an acoustic supplies specialist, says it’s asked questions like this all the time by contractors who know building and construction inside out, but who may not have quite the same level of expertise in acoustics.

That’s the reason it decided to start the JCW Acoustic Supplies Roadshow which has been touring the UK in May and June and will continue through July, giving local trades a chance to access expert advice.

‘Throughout the roadshow, we'll be working to show how easy it is to find the specialist acoustic products our customers need,’ explains Laura Keegan, commercial director of JCW Acoustic Supplies. ‘We'll help our builders' merchants identify the right questions to help their customers find the right product. And we'll be answering any questions from local trades - on anything from materials to Building Regs - and giving them free advice to create better acoustic performance. You don't need to be able to specify the materials; we'll do that for you on the day.’

This sort of advice is usually available at trade exhibitions, but Laura wanted an easier way for trades to find the answers they need. ‘An exhibition may be easier for us, but that's not where our customers are. They are on site or at the builders' merchants - so we decided to make life easier for our trades and place ourselves at builders' merchants too. And we'll make sure there's a brew, biscuit or similar waiting for our visitors.’

Remaining dates for the JCW Acoustic Supplies Roadshow are as below.
