Advantages of a floating floor

Nowadays, residents of high-rise buildings face a frequent problem – shock noise. Practically all apartment dwellers dream of solving this issue, especially those who live from below, where due to the rigidity of the structures the level of sound load greatly increases.

There are two ways out of the situation:

The first. Use elastic material to cover the floor. This material can be linoleum, carpet and so on.

The second. Install over the ceiling additional construction of the so-called “floating floor”.

It should be noted that the second method is more effective than the first.

There are two types of noise propagating through the interfloor overlap. This is airborne noise and shock.

The source of airborne noise is often a television that works loudly, or plays a musical instrument. Waves of sound emanating from the speakers or from an instrument fall through the air through the ceiling, and thus cause it to oscillate and transmit noise to the next apartment.

The second one occurs when people just walk on the floor or pets, when furniture and other heavy things are rearranged – in general, with mechanical effects on the floor. Also, it should be noted that these are more than natural and legal actions that are simply unrealistic to control in accordance with the time.

From impact noise, the above-mentioned variant is often applied with a statutory one more construction. Here, the most effective option is Floating Parquet, in which the installed materials do not tightly contact the side walls and, as a result, do not transmit sound waves. Thanks to the “Floating floor” can be improved sound insulation by fifty percent, which is a very high figure.

The main difference between floating floors and simple ones is that the flooring, which may consist of various materials, is not fixed to the base. Hence the name of the floating floor, that is, the floor, as if floating on a special layer.

Let’s consider more specifically what are the advantages of “floating floors”. Mainly, this is a great soundproofing, as already mentioned, due to the lack of attachment to the ceiling. Noise prevents lining. And using foam and expanded clay, we get an additional layer of insulation.

With good installation, the “floating floor” should be durable, due to the lack of fasteners that weaken and deteriorate.

“Floating floors” distribute the load evenly and are therefore quite durable.
