QuietBoard Acoustic Floor Boards has again been used in a project in London SW where a higher degree of sound insulation is required through a floor.
Because QuietBoard is a high density cement impregnated tongued and grooved chipboard, it is much more efficient at stopping sound penetration than normal floorboards. At only 18mm thick it takes up no more space than normal 18mm flooring yet with a mass of 25kg per square metre is a much better sound blocking product that takes up no additional space.
QuietBoard is also a popular choice when installing floating floors to help bring floors into compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations for the control of noise through separating floors. QuietBoard can be used as both the base floor and floating floor with resilient insulation separating the two layers. The resilient layer would normally be our 10mm R10 a recycled rubber insulation produced from used vehicle tyres.
Due to its weight, QuietBoard is supplied in smaller sheets of 1200 x 600mm that are easier to handle, a major consideration if they have to be manhandled up several flights of stairs with each panel having a weight of about 18kg.
