Bring your apartment to life with the natural beauty of timber and bamboo flooring

“Don’t let sound restrictions and regulations prevent you from having a beautiful life with natural timber flooring.”

Are you struggling to create the look you want in your new apartment due to sound insulation issues?

When building or renovating an apartment it’s essential to take noise reduction precautions to make sure your home is compliant with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) standards.

People in the apartment buyer’s market, or owners looking to renovate, are mistakenly told that their flooring options are limited to just carpet or tiles due to the BCA criteria for impact noise transmission in buildings.

At Lifewood we find it unacceptable to have your personal design preferences restricted to such limited choices. This is why we have ensured our whole collection of Timber, French Oak and Bamboo floors are available and adaptable for all living scenarios.

We have taken the most requested floor finishes and matched them with the Regupol® Acoustic Underlay that best suits the application. This is Regupol® Acoustics Systems, simplified for timber floor coverings.

“Simply choose your floor you love and we’ll soundproof it for Australian BCA compliancy”

The Lifewood Slotted PE Mat System Explained

The Lifewood 5mm Slotted PE Mat System is specifically designed to minimise noise transfer.

1. The system comprises the use of a polyethylene (PE) foam matting that is laid on top of the concrete slab.

2. Low emission, flexible adhesive is applied into the slots into the matting.

3. The floorboards are installed perpendicular to the slots to bind the floor onto the concrete.

4. Expansion gaps around the edges of the rooms act to reduce sound transmission laterally.


Why do you need an Australian BCA compliant floor?

The BCA’s objectives are to the safeguard occupants in residential buildings from illness or loss of amenity resulting from excessive noise.

The BCA Part F5.4 sound insulation rating of floors, requires a floor in a Class 2 or 3 building to have an impact sound insulation rating of no less than Ln,w 62.

The Ln,w rating is a measure of the ability of the floor system to suppress footfall noise and noise from other impacts. The lower this rating, the higher the impact sound reduction performance of the system.

“Our passion for timber craft saw us invent the world’s best floorboard”

Mark Hutchison, Founder Lifewood

We created the floorboard technology

No one in Australia can claim to have the same floorboard design as Lifewood. How do we know this? Because our design is patented. The unique three-layered structural design was created by Lifewood’s owner, Mark Hutchison, who is also a UWA educated scientist. It’s this design that makes our floorboards the best in the world.

The Lifewood patented Stabilised Solid technology creates a unique, highly reliable, solid engineered timber floorboard.

We are so confident our patented Lifewood floorboards will not cup or warp, that we guarantee them with a lifetime warranty.
