The objective of the article is to assess acoustic insulation of a wooden floor structure between stories in a pre-war residential building. The measurements involved acoustic insulation against impact sounds and airborne sounds. The article presents the results of acoustic tests for noninsulated floors and then for floors insulated with mineral wool. First, the results of the research were analyzed in terms of single-number acoustic insulation rates. These results were compared to the standards and findings described by other researchers. Then, an analysis was carried out for the processes as a function of frequency. The conclusions described in this article allow us to assess the applied acoustic insulation system.
