MuteCradle™ provides a superior floating floor system for impact reduction and floor levelling purposes
MuteCradle™ is our innovative acoustic flooring system for both concrete and timber sub floors to help give a completely floating floor with no direct fixings. The system is also used to help level an uneven floor when combined with our varying sizes of MuteCradle™ and Packers.
MuteCradle™ is fitted with a recycled rubber-base layer at a 10mm thickness, this helps to provide a highly effective impact reduction as a complete floating floor system achieving a 53dB Ln'w CL) - an average of 28dB reduction and is compliant with Part E Building Regulations, and is in accordance with Robust Detail for 'Resilient Cradle and Batten Systems'
MuteCradle™ is part of iKoustic's MuteRange core - these are products that been subjected to stringent testing in both laboratory and real world environments providing the best possible solution for the purpose with a result you can trust.

This product is part of the following systems:
Although MuteCradle is designed for the sound proofing of concrete floors, it can also help with timber floors - it’s sound insulation values for impact transmission are greater in concrete because it’s dense rubber padding is to ensure its stability under weight, in which this dense acoustic pad is often less effective in timber, but it does help to decouple the floor leaving minimal points of contact with the structure. MuteCradle houses timber stud framing across the floor which creates an air gap to accommodate sound insulation - this is effective in reducing low end noise issues and vibration.
Where Part E Building Regulations are concerned, MuteCradle is a perfect addition to concrete building to help achieve and often surpass the required values, they can also be used in conjunction with the Scottish Building Regulations to achieve their higher acoustic requirements.
Additional soundproofing can be installed to the new floating floor such as our: MuteDeck™ , MuteMat™ 2 or MuteMat™ 3 for those looking to provide further acoustic improvements against both airborne and impact noise issues.
MuteCradle has been used to soundproof audio control rooms, recording studios and specified for use in cinema rooms to help float the floor away from the substrate, this is often where the sub-woofer would transfer low frequencies in to the main structure and cause them to bypass any wall soundproofing systems that are in place, this can present real difficulties when trying to resolve in retrospect, we would look to specify them in the beginning of such projects. It is also a popular option for soundproofing large sports halls as well as other uses where services may need to be run underneath the flooring.
When it comes to soundproofing a home, especially in large residential constructions, they will often greatly benefit from the introduction of acoustic cradles, especially in concrete structures to where maximum protection against impact noise is required for sound will often flank and travel great distances - they are also a good option to for when the floor contains dips, troughs and stepped levelling in areas where applying screed is difficult or costly.
MuteCradle can be alternated to assist differences in floor levels, if there are small steps these can be installed without any additional work to the structure. You will also find fine tuning packers here to even out small fluctuations found in concrete builds.
They are designed to be used with each other for levelling floors that are within these ranges - the fitting of stud framing is the same for each.
The 45/60mm option creates a larger air gap, which can accommodate more servicing if required, which with office soundproofing this is usually important when running servers and cabling over vast areas - making the organisation of cabling simpler, safer and certainly more aesthetically pleasing.
