Acoustic Mineral Wool & ImpactDefenceFloor & Triple Barrier Mat

This is the highest level base system we offer, and typically used for Part E level soundproofign. A highly effective service if you are looking to have brand new flooring fitted in the room in question that is both effective towards airborne and impact sound, but more effective for the latter. Generally speaking the acoustic mineral wool and ImpactDefenceFloor (IDF) & Triple Barrier Mat is used to meet current building regulations, or when the highest levels of impact reduction are required. The main materials used in this soundproofing solution are Acoustic Mineral Wool & ImpactDefenceFloor and Triple Barrier Mat. Mineral wool soundproofing is tightly fitted between the existing floor joists once the original floorboard is removed and disposed of. Acoustic Mineral Wool is designed to target airborne noise specifically, but can also be effective in minimising impact/reverberant sound. Once the wool is packed between the joists a T&G (Tongue & Groove) acoustic chipboard flooring deck with impact protection properties is fitted over the entire floor area. Finally, a 15mm rubber sheet is laid on top to maximum protection. The flooring will not be fixed to joists as we need to keep the floor floating because by minimising the contact between the below room and said room, we will minimise how much impact sound travels throughout the rooms. Perimeter strips will be installed as standard to minimise flanking noise travelling down the walls.
