Acoustideck, a new flooring system from Kingspan, is designed to significantly reduce noise through party floors in domestic and commercial installations whilst also offering easy access to pipes and cables in the floor void.
The Acoustideck modular system comprises 600mm flooring panels, which are fully accessible and interchangeable, offering very localised and easy access to the floor void. This is a major advantage over traditional floor systems where access is difficult, often resulting in damage to the floor panels or boards.
Kingspan Acoustideck panels can be removed individually or several at a time, permitting varied access routes. They are easily put back in place and locked down for maximum rigidity and stability. The systems adjustable floor pedestals not only permit changes to the floor height but also allow for unevenness of the slab finish found in new build and significantly more so in refurbishment projects. The finished floor height can be as low as 45mm. The pedestal base houses a unique Kingspan snap-on flexible thermo plastic rubber pad to enhance acoustic performance.
The Acoustideck system is lightweight, reducing floor slab loadings, and is solid underfoot to prevent creaking and rocking.
Acoustideck is ideal for a wide range of applications, particularly in flats and apartment complexes, student accommodation, schools, academies and hotel complexes. It is especially suitable for the refurbishment and adaptation of high rise office complexes for either residential or mixed residential/commercial use, due to its flexibility and ability to achieve low void heights.
Acoustideck exceeds the impact sound requirements of Building Regulations Part E when used with an appropriate structural floor and ceiling construction.
