Noisestop F7+ combines three layers of acoustic materials. A layer of 5mm 9lb chip foam, a layer of 5mm mass loaded vinyl 5kg/m² and a layer of 5mm 9lb chip foam. The properties of this product reduce high levels of impact noise that can transmit through timber and concrete floor constructions.
- 15mm x 1200mm x 600mm (0.72m²)
- Reduces high levels of impact noise
- Part ‘e’ compliant
- Used over timber and concrete floors
- Use below hard floor finishes
Acoustic Performance of Noisestop F7+
Noisestop F7+ will ensure your floors meet current Part ‘e’ Building Regulation guidelines. To complete you installation use DFM acoustic insulation, Soundbreaker Bars and two layers of acoustic plasterboard.
Building Regulations require impact levels to be below the stated figure and the airborne levels to be above the figure stated.
Noisestop F7+ Performance
- 52dB – 10 to 12dB below regulations
- 49dB – 7dB above regulations
Stated figures are with a typical part ‘e’ compliant ceiling installed below. For higher levels of soundproofing you can use Ceiling System 2.
Fitting the Noisestop F7+
Noisestop F7+ is quick and easy to install. You will need a sharp knife or heavy duty scissors. Some remedial work may be needed to the floor before you fit the products. Fill any gaps or holes with AC50 acoustic sealant. Lay the Noisestop F7+ across the floor in a brick bond pattern. There is no requirement to fix these sheets to the floor for domestic soundproofing. If you are working with in Building Regulations you will need to bond the mats to the floor using a floor grade adhesive. The Noisestop F7+ is cut to shape using a sharp knife or scissors.
Use Noisestop F7+ Below Solid Floor Finishes
The Noisestop F7+ is our recommended product for use below solid floor finishes. Laminates, engineered flooring and tiled floors usually produce more impact noise than a floor with a carpet. If you use the Noisestop F7+ below this type of floor you will stop the impact noise transferring into the floor.
Use Noisestop F7+ and DFM Acoustic Insulation on Timber Floors
If you are soundproofing a timber floor you can increase the airborne soundproofing by using 100mm DFM acoustic insulation. We recommend the DFM 100mm/80kg/m³ for optimum soundproofing. If you are soundproofing a separating floor for Part ‘e’ acoustic insulation should be used between the floor joists, the minimum requirement is 100mm/45kg/m³.
Noisestop F7+ can been used to comply with leases that state only carpets or equivalent can be used in flats, when used below solid floor finishes it will be equal to or better than the acoustic performance required in these cases.
