Also referred to as tongue and groove, this fitting type comes with many benefits including:

  • Stops shrinking and warping
  • Reduction in boards working loose during use
  • Simplified installation that reduces effort and stress for installation teams
  • Long-lasting stability
  • Stops weakness at joins
  • Fits together in different orientations
  • May not need adhesives and extra fittings as the panels fit together with each other

As such, it is easy to see why interlocking acoustic deck boards are the most popular option for reducing sound transmission.
