Acoustic Flooring is a flooring system designed to reduce the transmission of sound through a separating floor. It is usually specified within apartments and hotels but can also be utilised with houses. It can be a timber flooring solution like an acoustic deck comprising chipboard and foam or an acoustic batten system like the JCW 80T. It can also be a screeded solution made up of a sand cement screed and a resilient layer.
There are a number of factors that need to be considered when trying to reduce noise through floors. The system proposed will depend on; the use of the building, the construction of the subfloor, the ceiling treatment below, and the type of noise that you are trying to reduce. Acoustic floors are primarily used to reduce impact sound but can also be used to reduce airborne sounds.
Pre-completion testing is often required for houses and apartments to be signed off by Building Control. The test must be conducted by either a UKAS accredited or ANC registered acoustic consultant. Sound testing should only be carried out by a qualified individual or company, a list of ANC (Acoustics & Noise Consultants) members can be found here http://www.association-of-noise-consultants.co.uk/members-search/
Mineral wool is often used as insulation between separating floors, it can be used between joists, or within a floating floor or ceiling void. Part E of the Building Regulations should be referred to for performance requirements as this covers the passage of sound between walls and floors.
There are a number of systems that can be considered when installing an acoustic floor within a commercial building. Each one is dependent on the building and its use as well as other specific factors like the subfloor construction and ceiling detail. An acoustic consultant should be contacted to ensure that the correct system is used.
