Acoustical floors represent a niche market. Residents and customers regularly voice concerns of noise transmission through walls and floors. In some cases, some form of a noise reduction solution becomes necessary.
To meet those needs, Barrier Corp. offers a variety of sound-attenuation flooring products. The products are installed under the poured underlayments to increase ITC and STC ratings. A wide range of products can be used, from cork to engineered sound products.
Once the sound-attenuation material is in place, Barrier Corp. pours the underlayment on top of the sound-control product, to a minimum thickness of ½ inch. The underlayment achieves a strength of at least 3,500 psi. It can be walked on in 3 to 4 hours, minimizing downtime for trades
