Gyp-Crete Underlayments Provide Sound Transmission Solutions for Multi-family Housing
To meet sound transmission requirements in multi-family housing projects, Insul-Flow installs several different gypcrete underlayment products and sound matting options:
- Sound Stop® floor fill, developed by Lite-Crete, saves you both time and money by eliminating the need for R-11 insulation batts between floor joists, and allowing just a single plate in all wall constructions.
- Sound Stop goes in AFTER installation of roofing, drywall, doors and windows. This means bad weather won’t interrupt your schedule or damage your floor.
- Acousti-mat® HP products add an extra layer of isolation to increase impact noise control ratings. Used with a Maxxon floor underlayment, they also create a flame barrier.
- Enkasonic® HPprovides additional impact noise control with an added layer of high performance acoustical fabric.
- For a variety of residential and commercial projects, Acousticork® makes an effective sound control matting and crack suppression underlayment for use under hard surface floor areas.
