When installation our MuteMat™ flooring systems, it is essential to line the perimeter of each room when installing a new subfloor, or installing any hard floor finishes.
MuteMat® Gym Flanking Band is essential in ensuring that the impact / vibrations of the gym flooring system does not transfer and flank into the adjacent walls, which is often overlooked. Flanking Bands are to line the perimeter of any room that is using rigid materials that would come into contact with the walls. It acts as a buffer, one that reduces Flanking Transmission, by creating a barrier between floor and wall.
We are always looking for the best ways to describe to you the world of soundproofing through introducing guides that range from the basic principles of sound, how to best soundproof surfaces and what to look for, and how to understand acoustic test data, and this is only naming a few! We want to help you come to the right decision, so whether this is through the use of our guides or talking to a member of our team - we are here to help!
A combination of the following will always result in a much improved acoustic performance.
Whatever your soundproofing needs, come and speak to our team on 01937 588 226.
Perimeter Edging Strip should be applied around the perimeter of each room to where hard flooring comes in to contact with the adjacent wall.
When all floor layers are butt against the Perimeter Edging Strip it reduces flanking transmission by creating a barrier between for and wall for impact sound to transfer in to, instead of directly in to the adjacent walls - helping to improve the soundproofing quality of the floor. Negating this can lead to failure of acoustic tests in most cases and is difficult and costly to fix in retrospect.
It requires bonding to the wall to make sure it has a secure fit, then the plastic apron with the self-adhesive strip is applied to the floor to create an L shape.
