FLOATING FLOORS

Timber Floating Floors

For isolation of structure-borne noise for sports floors and dance studios, auditoriums, bowling alleys, gymnasiums, music theatres. 

In environments where isolation of noise and vibration is paramount to ensure optimum acoustical performance, such as music auditoriums or theatres, or applications where there are high levels of impact noise and vibration, such as sports floors, bowling alleys and gymnasiums, consideration should be given to installing a rubber or pad mounted floating floor.

For standard multi-tenanted developments requiring a flooring underlay to comply with or exceed the BCA code on noise transmission, ImpactaMat should be sufficient. 

For critical applications, where the environment is adjacent to living or working areas, or where airborne noise also needs to be isolated, consideration should given to the installation of a concrete floating floor.

We offer four types of timber floating floor systems of which the features and benefits are shown in the table below. Each system uses a different isolator type, with the choice of system determined by the application and isolation efficiency required.

All systems are installed as “plank-on-ply” where the plywood is laid over the isolator, which in turn is laid over the structural floor. Battens can also be used.
