  • Acoustic insulation is laid on upper floors in apartments, schools, hospitals, nursing homes etc.
  • It consists of (usually) 10mm insulation laid on the floor before the floor insulation is put down. Where floors are to be screeded, acoustic edge insulation is installed around the perimeter of the room.
  • Acoustic insulation can be used with screeded and floating floor systems.
  • There is a difference in the method of laying this insulation between a screeded floor and a floating floor. With a screeded floor the acoustic insulation can be butted together or overlapped to preserve the acoustic bridge.
  • With a floating floor the acoustic insulation sheets are butted together and special acoustic tape must be used to join the acoustic insulation to preserve the acoustic bridge.
