Acoustic cradles are designed to reduce impact sound transmission through uneven or cambered concrete floors by elevating the floor on timber battens supported by an adjustable plastic cradle. This system facilitates the incorporation of services and is frequently specified with water based underfloor heating systems. Battens to be 45mm wide.
The cradle consists of a 5mm layer of heavy density foam bonded to an injection moulded plastic cradle. The system includes levelling packers in various thicknesses as well as elevating blocks where extra height is needed.
When installed as part of a complete party floor construction this system enables a concrete floor to meet the sound transmission standards of Approved Document E 2003 and subsequent amendments in 2004, 2010, 2013 and 2015.
