• IIC=58-60 sound insulation requirement for devised hardwood timber finishing

Solution:

An acoustic consultant conducted a Field Impact Insulation Class test with ARDEX DS 40 Sound Reduction and Decoupling System under hotel room floors. The ARDEX system achieved a result of FIIC 59. ARDEX Singapore Technical Services Department suggested ABA 310L mix with sand aggregate to enhance thickness and smooth the floors surface. ARDEX AF 190 Premium Multipurpose Flooring Adhesive bonded ARDEX DS 40 mat to the substrate. ABA 365 was used to install a layer of 9 mm plywood with 4-6 mm gaps along all perimeter walls and protrusions to allow total isolation of tiles from the adjacent building structure. Fifteen millimeter solid wood strips were installed on the plywood surface using HENRY® 1171N SureLock™ Acrylic Urethane Wood Flooring Adhesive. Gaps between the solid wood and perimeter walls were filled with ARDEX SE Flexible Sealant before skirting installation. The beautiful timber wood floors brought a lovely aesthetic and ARDEX products solved acoustic issues in PARKROYAL guest rooms.
