Floating Floor Design
Floating floors by definition 'float' above the concrete or timber support structure. Typically a resilient membrane is used to provide a degree of impact isolation. Resilient membranes can be as thin as 3mm for a slight improvement.
TThe National Construction Code (NCC), previously called the Building Code of Australia requires the floor and ceiling construction in multi level apartments to provide impact isolation. This is typically achieved by resiliently mounting the ceiling or providing a floating floor.
Each apartment building will require specific design in this regard. We welcome the opportunity to provide clients with acoustical advice.
