Easy to fit, direct-to-joist system, engineered as a Building Regulations (E&W) Approved Document E compliant acoustic joist treatment. The jaw of the caps are slightly tapered to ensure a tight friction fit.
When used upside down, it can also provide the resilient layer required when making resilient battens.
It can be used in both new build and refurbishment projects for timber and masonry builds. Used to achieve good sound attenuation, the mass of the structure is placed above the resilient layer. It is then placed over the joists before the mass of the floor is added. The cap is suitable for both rough-cut and planed timber joists.
- No structural change over time.
- Zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).
- Very low toxic fume and smoke emissions.
- Timber and masonry builds.
- Direct to joist application.
- Non-specialist installation.
