Acoustic insulation systems for floors and walls

Noise in buildings is categorized according to its origin:

  • Airborne noise.
  • Noises generated by impact or percussive events.
  • Noises made by utility systems.

FONOSCUDO/E, FONOTAPE and FONOFOAM create a “FLOATING FLOOR” system that solves the problem of walking noises.

If the goal is to abate noise generated by footsteps but also to have rigid flooring, it is essential to resort to a floating floor that consists of a second floor laid on the load-bearing floor. Sandwiched between the two floors is a resilient support that also insulates the surrounding walls.
