EnkaSonic

acoustic sound control mats

Noise is a challenge in multi-story buildings such as apartments, office spaces and hotels. Suitable for application in hard-surface areas or throughout the entire floorplan, EnkaSonic provides the sound control required to tackle that issue.

 

OUR SOLUTION

The underlay that ensures acoustic insulation from impact as well as airborne noise

This is EnkaSonic

The EnkaSonic product portfolio encompasses a range of acoustic sound insulation underlays designed for use in the most diverse floor systems. They all consist of a three-dimensional mat made of fused entangled synthetic monofilaments. These are thermally bonded to a nonwoven fabric.

EnkaSonic complies with relevant construction and building codes in the US and many European countries. If and as required the underlay can be customized to meet new national codes. EnkaSonic is highly compression resistant. Testing after 10 years of use has shown that the sound control mat had retained over 95% of its original thickness.

Floor build up with EnkaSonic subfloor acoustic underlay by Enka Solutions image owned by Low & Bonar Freudenberg Performance MaterialsEnkaSonic is installed between the concrete or wood subfloor, and a gypsum or lightweight concrete topping to build a floating floor. It creates a void area within the floor construction.

This void isolates noise and prevents it from spreading. EnkaSonic so reduces the transmission of both airborne and impact sound.

The acoustic insulation underlay significantly increases Impact Insulation Class (IIC) ratings and Sound Transmission Class (STC) levels over wood frame and IIC over concrete.

 

EnkaSonic acoustic insulation underlay for hard floors

Examples of subfloors on which the underlay has proven its performance include OSB, plywood and concrete. Also with regards to the surface floor, the possibilities are almost endless. Since several decades already EnkaSonic has been successfully used under hardwoods, ceramic tile and even marble.
