Floors

Internal Floors

Internal floors are floors within the same residential or commercial space where there is no thermal gradient between the two rooms. Therefore thermal insulation is not necessary.

Acoustic performance is the principle requirement, with both sound insulation and sound absorption being important considerations.

The sound absorption characteristics of our mineral wool insulation solutions make them ideal for use in internal floor build-ups.

Separating Floors

Acoustic performance is the principle requirement, with both sound insulation and sound absorption being important considerations.

The sound absorption characteristics of our mineral wool insulation solutions make them ideal for use in separating floor build-ups.

We have a wide range of solutions which comply with constructions registered in the Robust Details Handbook, providing compliance with sound related building regulations.

Ground Floors

Insulation is placed between the joists and supported on netting (e.g. polypropylene) or timber battens.

An important consideration is to ensure that the insulation product used fills all gaps between joists to prevent air movement which can lead to unwanted heat loss.
