Acoustic floor systems provide additional performance when a standard deck (either timber or concrete) cannot meet the requirements set down in documents such as Approved Document E without assistance.
Solutions available include overlay acoustic floor and structural acoustic floor (direct to joist) systems that are suitable for the use with most floor covering types (subject to acoustic floor system being utilized). Where an engineered joist system is utilized care needs to be taken when using structural acoustic floor systems, given they cannot be directly connected to joists with mechanical fixings.

When choosing an acoustic floor system consideration needs to be given to a number of factors that include:
– Reducing airborne noise, impact noise or both
– What the new floor will be laid on (eg. existing floor, direct to joist, concrete)
– Sound Levels needed to be achieved
– Any special requirements (eg. is it for a gym, music studio etc)
– Will the added product change other factors such as skirting board height, door clearance etc.

Acoustic floor systems are suitable for use in both new builds and refurbishments (including conversions) our range of acoustic flooring has a solution for most occasions.
