Acoustic Battens Supply and Installation

JCW Acoustic Battens have a 10mm pre-bonded resilient layer, made from open-cell recycled polyurethane.

This resilient composite batten structure means the battens offer an exceptional reduction in impact sound whilst maintaining a high compressive strength – making them suitable for use with most floor finishes, including tiles.

Our acoustic batten systems reduce airborne and impact sound in multi-storey buildings and can be used on new builds or refurbishment projects with separating floors, including in flats,  universitieshotels, and student accommodation.

Other benefits of the JCW acoustic batten system include:

  • Standard or custom batten sizes are available – choose between standard batten sizes of either 50mm or 80mm or in custom sizes, upon request.
  • Compliance with Robust Details

JCW80T Acoustic Battens are the perfect solution if you are working to Robust Details E-FT-1, E-FT2, E-FT-3, or E-FS-2.

JCW80C and JCW50C battens can be used when working to E-FC-1, E-FC-2, E-FC-7, and E-FS-1 of the Robust Details.

  • Meeting regulations for Approved Document Part E in England and Wales – including JCW80C, JCW50T, or JCW50C Acoustic Battens.
  • Accommodating services – Battens are ideal when accommodating services, as they can leave a service void for pipes, HVAC, and extra insulation. This also makes floor structures’ installation faster and easier, cutting out the risk of site delays.


JCW Acoustic Flooring has been installing acoustic flooring systems since 2004 – so we have the expertise and experience needed to help with airborne and impact sound insulation.

Do Acoustic battens meet the robust detail requirements?

Several batten systems comply with a wide range of Robust Detail specifications. So, whether you are building a timber frame building working to Robust Detail E-FT-1 or constructing an in-situ concrete slab on metal decking to E-FS-1, JCW Acoustic Flooring can supply and install the correct acoustic batten system to ensure compliance.

Are acoustic battens difficult to install?

Acoustic battens should only be installed by a competent acoustic flooring installer. JCW Acoustic Flooring can supply and install acoustic flooring nationwide – please get in touch for a quotation.
