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