JCW80T Acoustic Battens are primarily used on timber sub-floors and can be used within new build projects and refurbishment projects.
The JCW80T Acoustic Batten System offers the ideal solution, whether working to Robust Details or Pre Completion Testing.
The JCW80T Acoustic Battens have a 10mm pre bonded resilient layer which is made from open cell, recycled polyurethane. Standard batten sizes are 80mm overall, however other battens sizes are available to suit any finished floor level that you may require.
One advantage of using the JCW80T Acoustic Batten is that services can be installed between battens. It is important however that services do not bridge the resilient layer on the battens.
JCW80T Acoustic battens can be overlaid with an 18mm (min) tongued and grooved board. This is usually chipboard but can be plywood or engineered hardwood flooring.
When installing the JCW80T acoustic batten system within a timber frame, a 25mm mineral wool and an additional layer of gypsum based board with a nominal mass of 13.5kg/m² is installed on top of battens prior to the 18mm (min) tongued and grooved board. This is done to add mass to the separating floor which improves airborne performance.
A 5mm (min) perimeter edge strip is required around the perimeter of the flooring board. This is to isolate the floating floor from walls and skirting.
For batten centres it is important that manufacturers recommendations are complied with. For further advice please call JCW on 01204 387 029.
All acoustic battens used by JCW Acoustic Flooring have been tested in a UKAS accredited laboratory.
When installed correctly JCW Acoustic Batten Systems will exceed the requirements set out in Part E of the Building Regulations.
