Sound Planning’s acoustic floors have been developed and fully tested to maximise their noise reduction performance; they have been stringently assessed by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
Showcasing a new and simple method of achieving up to 90 minutes integrity and sound insulation, they also meet the correct airborne and impact requirements of the new Approved Document Part E of the Building Regulations Act.
Our acoustic floors are suitable for new builds or the refurbishment/ conversion of different buildings such as:
- Nursing homes
- Museums and libraries
- Shopping centres
- Oil refineries
- Durable construction
- Excellent acoustic performance
- Aesthetic value
- Tarnish proof
- Stress-free maintenance
BRC Acoustic Rubber Mat 6mm System for Timber Floors using Resilient Bars
|A = BRC Acoustic Rubber Mat 1.25m x 10m x 6mm |
B = Typical T&G Chipboard or Plywood Deck or Floorboards.
C = 10kg/m³ 100mm Acoustic Insulation.
D = Resilient Bar Fixed @ 400mm Centres.
E = Two Layers of 15mm Thick Acoustic Plasterboard
F = Timber Joists 50mm x 235mm @ 450mm Centres.
|Rw(+Ctr) (dB) = 52||TEST RESULTS||Lntw (dB) = 54|
|DOC E REQUIREMENTS||DOC E REQUIREMENTS||DOC E REQUIREMENTS|
|Dntw + Ctr (dB) = 45 (min)||PURPOSE BUILT||Lntw (dB) = 62 (max)|
|Dntw + Ctr (dB) = 43 (min)||CHANGE OF USE||Lntw (dB) = 64 (max)|
A method of upgrading timber joist floors to achieve improvements in the airborne and impact requirements of Part E (Sound) and also meet the requirements of Part B (Fire) of The Building Regulations
