The SoundBar System

Outstanding Acoustic Flooring Solutions

The SoundBar System is a cost-effective, quick to install, acoustic flooring solution and the only system of its kind to achieve Robust Detail EFT-4. Its modular system offers multiple benefits to the housebuilder and developer, reducing build times, simplifying site logistics and enhancing the overall sales appeal of the finished product.

Originally designed to be used in timber frame structures, it is now installed more frequently in masonry builds. The floating floor treatment is installed on a Finnjoist (engineered i-beam) floor construction enabling an easier and lighter construction than a beam and block floor with no requirement for cranes/long reach forklifts. Using a self-levelling Gyvlon screed, the SoundBar System significantly improves sound performance whilst retaining a solid floor feel, and is ideal for use with under floor heating systems and any floor finish.

Key Benefits
