Timber floor Acoustic Insulation
Cellecta timber floor acoustic insulation products will add mass and dramatically reduce impact sound transmission at source. The addition of plasterboards, a dry screed board or proprietary screed will add further mass. Resilient ceiling bars will de-couple the ceiling and a fibrous slab or quilt will absorb sound in the ceiling void. For general information on acoustic insulation click here.
Acoustic insulation for the following timber floor types:
- Timber i-joist
- Timber solid joist
- Web joists
- Masonry walls with timber floors
- Timber refurbishment floors
Sound Insulating timber floors
By nature, timber floors are low in mass, making them more susceptible to poor acoustic performance and therefore more challenging to ensure compliance. Each timber floor acoustic insulation treatment combines a high performance resilient layer and perimeter flanking strip that, when installed correctly, will exceed the acoustic standards of Approved Document E.

Refurbishment and conversion projects
Existing timber floors typically have a low mass and sometimes unknown construction details, making them inherently difficult to achieve the prescribed acoustic values without addressing a number of areas. The floors mass can be increased by the introduction of additional plasterboard layers.
FIBREfon Micro Slab 50 or mineral wool placed in the ceiling void will defuse airborne sound. Resilient bars will de-couple the ceiling, and one of Cellecta’s timber floor acoustic insulation treatments can reduce the impact sound at source.
Each one of Cellecta’s systems comprises a tongue & groove floorboard with at least one high performance resilient layer and flanking strip that, when installed correctly, will conform with the required acoustic standards.
With some historical buildings undergoing a material change of use, it may not be practical to achieve the prescribed sound values. In these cases, Building Control bodies should be satisfied that everything reasonable has been done to improve the sound performance of the structure. Pre-completion tests are normally required and the results submitted accordingly.
