Isosonic Dek Floor 30 is a new, prime addition to the Thermal Economics IsoRubber product range.
The ISOSONIC DEK30 board forms a combined sound insulation and structural deck, installed directly over the floor joists. It is composed of 8mm Isorubber resilient layer bonded to V313 chipboard.
ISORUBBER itself is a dense, durable, low compression material with excellent impact and airborne sound properties; it forms the main acoustic component of six Robust Details. The main benefits of Isorubber over expanded polymer foams are:
a) Its mass, which reduces airborne sound transmission
b) Its hardness, which prevents compression ( loss of resilience ) at the board to joist interface
The system is designed to reduce flanking sound leakage around the floor perimeter; a frequent problem in refurbishment work, and it employs the Isosonic Ceiling Brackets which absorb vibrations to facilitate the acoustic decoupling of the floor and ceiling. The Isosonic DekFloor 30 system has been tested in both laboratory experiments and on site to prove that the Isosonic DekFloor 30 system achieves compliance with Approved Document E ( Refurbishment) sound performance requirements.
