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.

Perimeter Flanking Band FB8

Perimeter Flanking Band – FB8 is an absolute essential in floor soundproofing systems and one that is often overlooked. Perimeter 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. It is to be installed along with any installation of a new subfloor in timber builds, even if you plan to install a woven carpet. It is for when you are installing any hard floor finish such as the examples below.

  • Engineered wood
  • Laminate
  • Luxury vinyl tile
  • Vinyl
  • Ceramics

Screeding also benefits from the use of a Flanking Band as it helps to decouple the new floating screed from being in immediate contact with the walls.

Perimeter Flanking Band should be applied around the perimeter of each room to where hard flooring comes in to contact with the adjacent wall, so with the fitting of new timber flooring it should be installed at joist level to the final floor finish level. When using acoustic under screeding in concrete constructions, you will want to make sure full coverage is available to reduce contact with the adjacent concrete walls.

When all floor layers are butt against the Perimeter Flanking Band it reduces flanking transmission by creating a barrier between floor and wall to deaden the impact vibrations passing, instead of passing directly into 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.
