A sound solution for reducing vibration and impact noise transmission through floor ceiling assembly



NOISE – one of the most common cause of annoyance and disturbance to occupants in multiple level building structure. People don’t mind living or working in close proximity as long as they are out of sight and beyond the hearing range of each other.

 

Product Introduction



ENKASONIC
, with millions of square feet installed worldwide since 1980’s has proven to be the best solution for improving both airborne sound quality and most importantly, that elusive impact noise. ENKASONIC works effectively and economically with various types of flooring assembly and offers sound ratings (STC & IIC) levels unrivalled in the industry.

ENKASONIC” Sound Control Matting is a specially engineered flexible matting made of 3-dimensional polyamide filament structure with a filter fabric thermally bonded on one side. The 3-dimensional structure is produced from polyamide-6 monofilaments, welded together where they cross.
 



Purpose of Enkasonic

ENKASONIC” Sound Control Matting is Used as an underlay beneath hard floor covering to isolate vibration and impact noise transmitted through floor-ceiling assembly in both wood-frame and concrete slab construction. It serves to create a structural void with air cavity that is essential for isolating impact noise generated through foot- falls, falling and dragging of objects and other activities commonly encountered in dwelling commercial and office spaces. The performance and benefits of Enkasonic is most noticeable when used with hard floor covering such as ceramic tiles, marble, granite, stone, timber strip and parquet.


TheENKASONIC Sound Rated Floor System

Enkasonic matting can be used as an underlay in a variety of floating floor system to achieve the desired sound rating requirements and floor-ceiling assembly construction. Some commonly used systems over concrete slab assembly are :-

  • Lightweight Concrete
  • Cement Mortar Beds
