Convert older buildings with confidence using Hush Acoustics’ dependable separating floor system

  • 30 Apr 2021

Hush Acoustics launches a fully tested, building regulations-compliant acoustic treatment system. It overcomes the challenge of achieving high levels of sound insulation in the separating floors of older building conversions which feature lath and plaster ceilings.

The HD1033 Hush Acoustic System

The HD1033 Hush Acoustic System LP/MF17 brings together a variety of sound insulating materials. These work to transform the acoustic properties of floors/ceilings in material change of use projects, particularly where multiple properties are being created within the same building.

It is ideal for redevelopment projects where an old office or commercial building is becoming a new residential, hotel or multi-purpose accommodation. This helps to unlock the potential of older property assets by making building regulations compliance a reality.


Key benefit

The key benefit of HD1033 is its ability to reduce the potential for airborne, impact and flanking sound transmission. All this, whilst keeping the existing floor and ceiling structure intact.

Above the floor level, a Hush-Panel 17 floating floor goes over the original boards or suitable structural deck. This works in conjunction with the treatment to the underside of the lath and plaster ceiling below. 

Here, Hush-Slab 100 sound absorber slabs feature within the Hush-MF ceiling system. It is complete with two layers of Soundbloc plasterboards to effectively stop sound in its path.

Hush Perimeter Seal

Breaking the connection of the floating flooring to the walls reduces impact noise turning into a form of flanking sound (sound that transmits around the major insulating elements). This is achieved through the use of Hush Perimeter Seal around the floating floor edge.

HD1033 ensures separating floors can meet the requirements of Approved Document E in England and Wales, Section 5 (Scotland) and Part G in Northern Ireland. The system also offers a one hour fire resistance at ceiling level.
