Insulation for Separating Floors
U-value CalculatorStart your U-value calculation >
Separating floors have an important role to play when it comes to how a building’s occupants perceive the internal environment, and whether it delivers the level of comfort & well-being that they expect. The primary purpose of a separating floor is to provide acoustic separation to different areas of the building, as well as providing a level of fire protection to these spaces from fires occurring in adjacent areas.
These floors can be of timber construction, concrete construction or of a composite steel/concrete construction. The insulation is specified primarily to provide both impact and airborne sound reduction and can be placed in different areas of the floor construction to maximise their effectiveness.
Saint-Gobain Insulation UK manufacture and supply a range of glass mineral wool rolls and slabs that can be considered suitable for a wide range of applications across all types of separating floors.
