Acoustic Floors

Acoustic floors generally consist of several layers bonded together to form an impact and airborne resistant system. Typically, such systems combine mass (a dense panel layer) and resilience (rubber or foam layer which absorbs impact).

As seen in the floor insulation guide, both airborne and impact sound insulation are important for floors so, although the impact performance is usually dealt with from above, a suspended ceiling will provide a more robust construction.
