Our Isolation Strip P8 is an important component in the majority of timber flooring constructions, and in the building of stud-frames to assist in decoupling the structure, an essential property of reducing structural-borne vibration and low-frequency noise through suspending the mass away.
Isolation Strip P8 is a rubber-crumb, self-adhesive strip, and it is this rubber crumb material combined with its varying heights between 4-8mm that makes it a little more compressible, helps to reduce points of contact and spreads the load when a force from footsteps or pressure from furniture over a particular area is applied. This results in an enhanced treatment of impact transmission over flat isolation strips. Isolation Strip P8 will not falter under typical weights that are common in households and commercial properties, but with significant weights that are not usually expected, then do let us know so can we advise you. We would like to make sure that what you are selecting is correct, and will help you reach your soundproofing goals. You will see that Isolation Strip P8 features in many of our acoustic systems, you can learn more by selecting to 'Systems' tab above.
*Our Typical Performance Results and Noise Reduction Guidance are provided to indicate the results that have been achieved in previous tests but are not guaranteed to a specific site as multiple factors can affect this, you can view their variants on our 'Systems' tab.
We endeavour to display the most up to date testing and assist in managing your expectations through each stage of the process so that the choice we make is the right one.
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.
Isolation Strip P8 is an important addition for any installation of stud framing to which will come into contact with floors, walls or ceiling. Decoupling or separating these surfaces will reduce the amount of Flanking Transmission transferring into the stud frame, and will help to boost impact reduction on floors by applying directly to joists. We use Isolation Strips in all of our timber flooring systems when the existing floor can be removed and in our 'Stud' wall or floor systems.
We understand that it is not always possible to factor in the significant loss of space that the introduction of isolated stud frames or the use of acoustic cradles, so we provide different variances to suit what performance you need, your budget and thickness.

This product is part of the following systems:
With metal and timber stud walls, it isn’t just the use of sound insulation materials that help to provide additional sound proofing, but also the separation from adjacent surfaces. Isolation Strips deviated structures provides fewer points of contact between the frame and floor, wall and ceiling. Our Isolation Strip is perfect for this use and is highly recommended where any new stud framing is being constructed.
Isolation Strip is also very efficient at reducing impact noise and to use this between the sub-floor and timber joist will help to dramatically improve any acoustic system, again, it’s the use of the deviated structure and its rubber crumb construction that helps to soften footfall and to reduce it transferring into the joist and into the walls. It has a self-adhesive backing that will help it remain in place when fitted to the joist, you will need to make sure it is as dust free as possible.
Because of its self-adhesive backing, it can be used to suspend surfaces away from each other to help prevent vibration transferring through, this quality is important for sound proofing cinema rooms, recording studios and even in combination with washing machines or other household appliances.
The Isolation Strip was designed originally as an under screed, so it able to tolerate high point weight loads without faltering. If there are any concerns with weights and the use of our Isolation Strip - do contact our team on 01937 588 226.
