When it comes to fire safety, it is essential to select the right materials for your building. One of the most reliable options is acoustic underlay, which provides outstanding fire-resistant properties. This base layer is easy to install and meets British fire safety standards. Fiberglass has a lower melting point and lower thermal conductivity than mineral wool insulation, making it more likely to ignite when exposed to heat. On the other hand, mineral wool insulation can withstand high temperatures without igniting or contributing to the spread of flames.
This makes it an ideal choice for use in buildings where fire safety is a top priority. The soundproofing properties of acoustic underlay should not be overlooked either. You may be wondering if you are going to invest in an acoustic base or in soundproof mats, then, will you have restrictions on the final floor finish you can use. Because of how small and fragile tiles can be, you should not place them on soft, padded bases (as is the case with acoustic bases), as this increases the chance of them cracking and breaking. In addition, EXACOR subfloor panels can provide a base for floor coverings that eliminates the need to use a plaster subfloor and are installed 30% faster than gypsum subfloor. A carpet can easily be placed directly on top of all the acoustic layers and acoustic mats mentioned above.
Companies that sell carpet layers with sound-insulating properties quote a figure in dB. However, this figure only shows how much noise emitted by the air is blocked on a concrete floor, of which the bottom layer of carpet represents only 5%.It is important to know if the floor to which the acoustic base is going to be added is made of wood or concrete and the importance of the final finishes of the floor. Learn why EXACOR subfloor is a good choice to help keep projects on time with high-quality acoustic performance and quick installation. Acoustic underlay provides numerous benefits when it comes to fire safety and soundproofing. It is easy to install and meets British fire safety standards.
It also offers excellent soundproofing properties, allowing you to choose from a variety of floor finishes without worrying about cracking or breaking tiles. Furthermore, EXACOR subfloor panels provide a base for floor coverings that eliminates the need to use a plaster subfloor and are installed 30% faster than gypsum subfloor.
