Modern construction methods and environmental restrictions have increased the need for multi-occupancy buildings. Noise can be a very stressful and serious problem in this type of environment and therefore appropriate steps need to be taken to prevent noise transmission.
Sound transmission from upper floors into the rooms beneath can also present problems in many homes, with footfall and other noise sources being amplified by use of hard flooring surfaces like tiles or laminates. Quantum underfloor provides a cost effective solution.
Quantum Underfloor is a fully recycled rubber and cork composite material designed to absorb footfall noise in Residential and Commercial applications. The material also has a Zero ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential) and Zero GWP (Global Warming Potential).
In the construction industry Quantum Underfloor acoustic rubber membranes are designed for use on top of concrete, thereby eliminating the problems of under-screed layers which may be bridged during site installation causing expensive failures. In the domestic environment these membranes also provide an ideal under layer for laminate and other flooring, particularly on upper floors, providing a cushioning effect and substantial reductions in footfall noise.
Quantum Underfloor is suitable for use under most floor finishes including:
Complies with Document E 2003 – Part H (Scotland).
Robust Detail Compliant E-FC-8.
Quantum Underfloor is available in two standard thicknesses, 3mm or 5mm, and dependent upon thickness gives different Acoustic Data performance.
The most severe Testing is normally carried out using a hard surface such as Wood Laminate or Ceramic Tile over Concrete to provide the test data.
Quantum Underfloor has undergone extensive testing both in a recognised Accredited Test Facility and also on various sites under the majority of floor finishes. The material was tested in the Frauhofer Institute in Germany and shows compliance, of the CA2 material used, to the British Document E and German DIN ISO 140-8 STANDARD when used as part of a complete Acoustic System.
Site testing for this product shows improvements of up to 23 dB.
