Amazing! Innovative new wood flooring has integral acoustic layer
Information about Innovative new wood flooring has integral acoustic layer
Soundproofing experts CMS Danskin Acoustics and flooring company Tier Global, which specializes in dry laying, have worked together to develop an innovative parquet system with an integrated Regupol® acoustic layer. It is believed to be the first to have a built-in acoustic layer.
Dubbed TIERacoustix™, the baseplate is manufactured in the UK, is UKCA approved and received CE certification at the end of January 2022.
TIERacoustix™ consists of a thick UV-oiled commercial grade oak wear layer, a Regupol® Eco 18db reduction layer and a laminated birch core. A variant, TIERacoustix™ Magnetic, also includes Tier Global’s patented magnetic backing for dry-lay projects where access to raised floors is required.
In addition to the good acoustic damping properties of the new product, the tongue and groove version reduces installation time by up to 50 percent and the magnetic version by up to 75 percent.
TIERacoustix™ is manufactured on Tier Global’s production line in the UK. CMS Danskin Acoustics supplies the acoustic Regupol® layer, which is laminated into the middle of the panel. As a sustainable product, Regupol® is made from recycled aircraft tires.
Both TIERacoustix™ and TIERacoustix™ Magnetic have undergone rigorous testing and meet current regulations and performance requirements, including fire resistance, formaldehyde emissions, slip resistance and thermal conductivity.
TIERacoustix™ has other significant advantages over the traditional four-component process (adhesive, rubber, adhesive, flooring) for installing parquet floors.
Dale Nunn, Director of Tier Global, states, “The installation of TIERacoustix™ and TIERacoustix™ Magnetic is significantly faster since both consist of only two components, which means fewer site visits and deliveries, and easier unloading. Installing the Regupol® layer has led to a significant reduction in the critical path on the construction site without sacrificing quality.”
Chris Fitzpatrick, Head of Product Development at CMS Danskin Acoustics, says TIERacoustix™ is a great step forward: “We were very pleased to bring our acoustic insulation know-how to this joint development project. This is an innovative product that is already attracting great interest from architects, specifiers and contractors, being attracted by its sound deadening properties, the speed with which it can be installed and the magnetic option for use on raised floors.”
TIERacoustix™ is available in 12 standard colors or over a thousand customized colors and finishes. It can be laid on concrete or wooden sub-floors or stretched over joists and is FSC and PEFC certified.
TIERacoustix™ Magnetic is easy to lift and put back without affecting the quality of the finish.
In addition to these wood flooring products, Tier Global is developing a ceramic tile version with an integrated Regupol® acoustic layer and magnetic backing to offer the same performance as a traditional wet-laid floor.
Tier Global has filed a patent for TIERacoustix™ and TIERacoustix™ Magnetic. A number of successful applications will be announced shortly.
