Floating Floors

New Construction and Retrofits:

Be Confident. Use Mason Engineered Acoustic Floating Floor Systems.

Control noise and vibration between noisy and quiet environments

Floating floors systems are used for many purposes, predominantly to prevent noise passing through the floor but also to isolate against vibration and impact.

Architects and acoustic consultants will spec acoustic floating floors to control the transmission of noise or vibration between noisy and quiet environments. Typically, acoustically isolated walls and ceilings are built on the floating floor to create a ‘box-in-box’ construction. This solution greatly reduces the noise levels or energy transmitted to the quieter area.

Typical Applications for New Construction and Retrofits: 

Gyms, courts (squash, basketball, etc), mechanical rooms, generator rooms, transformer rooms, theatres, studios, commercial kitchens
