Occupied areas in building can be affected by noise generated in the level immediately above. These noise levels can be significantly reduced by isolating the above floor.
For the highest level of acoustic performance to reduce both airborne and impact noise, consideration should be given to isolating the ceiling below, and isolating the floor on a concrete floating floor, utilizing a mounting system and an airgap.
The concrete floating floor can be constructed on a permanent formwork spanning over high-capacity rubber mounts or poured onto the structural floor under and raised later via an array of special cast-in jacking mounts. Together with an airgap, these options require architects to allow for a greater depth of floor construction.
