Floors - Acoustics Monarfloor Tranquilt® - Acoustic Screed Isolation

Noise nuisance in the form of low frequency impact transmission within party and intermediate floors can be a real issue, and good sound insulation in design of the building and quality of the products used should be at the forefront to ensure quiet enjoyment by the occupier.

Approved Document E of the Building Regulations (ADE) required separating party floors to achieve an impact reduction performance, however there are many floors, being existing, or within individual dwellings where ADE doesn’t apply, but impact transmission can still cause noise nuisance.

Building Regulations allow for the use of various acoustic floors, many of which have other limitations on detailing, loading, integrations with second fix fit out. The trend today for many low rise new build apartments are to use a pre-cast concrete floor plank. Such a construction lends itself to acoustic screed isolation systems, also knows as ‘under screeds’.

Monarfloor Tranquilt, was the first screed isolation solution on the market, continues to demonstrate its exceptional performance and value for money across building projects throughout the UK, overcoming many issues faced by contractors on site.

Working with specifiers and installers over many years the system has continued to demonstrate many USP’s, which offer more than just unrivalled sound reduction, these are: Speed of installation, Tranquilt is the only true one part system which not only reduces the installation time, but there is no requirement to overlay with secondary damp proof membranes, to stop migration of screed through the acoustic layer.

Lightweight, at only 17.5Kg for a 30m roll, Tranquilt eliminates manual handling issues, both loading into a building, and during installation. Many other products are more than twice the weight.

Cost Effective, a one system that works with both sand, cement and proprietary screeds and compatible with underfloor heating. In addition the thermal coefficient of Tranquilt can be used to benefit the performance of the underfloor heating.

Easy to handle, cut and install and does not have to be left at room temperature for 12-24 hours to settle, and doesn’t have memory so won’t roll back on itself.

Being robust it does not easily tear or break up, it’s there to stay.

With superior dynamic stiffness and acoustic isolation, Tranquilt demonstrates the unrivalled impact reduction within the market.

Wholly manufactured in the UK from recycled material, and can be completely recycled. The LRAC material used also doesn’t have any health issues which has been attributed to the use of materials such as recycled rubber crumb, attributed to potential cancer risks.

100% UK manufactured which means everything is not only sourced within the UK, but carbon miles are reduced as it’s not being transported into the UK from other European countries, or further afield.

Tranquilt the only system of its kind to have patent protection given its unique composition.

Monarfloor’s drive to offer solutions with superior sound insulation, and user friendly application, is key given the industry demand to build more residential developments, any of which will be attached, where acoustic performance is crucial for the quiet enjoyment of the occupiers.
