Reflex Bearer - Acoustic Batten for Soundproofing Timber Floors




An extensive process of research and development over
many years enabled CMS Danskin Acoustics to produce 
an innovative flooring bearer with an exceptional level of 
acoustic performance. Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens
comprise softwood timber with  a unique double density
resilient fibre layer which provides a high degree of impact
sound reduction.

 Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens contribute significantly to 
the reduction of impact and airborne sound on level timber 
or lightweight steel constructions and on concrete subfloors 
in new build and refurbishment applications. The softwood 
timber has either PEFC accreditation as standard or FSC 
on request.

Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens Cut-Away Diagram

Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens

Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens comprise softwood battens 45mm ( Nom.) wide by 2400mm long with a specially developed resilient fibre strip 17mm thick adhered to the underside. They can be preservative treated if required. On average it is expected that the resilient layer will compress by around 4mm under normal loading.

Standard Heights ( unloaded ) : 53mm , 62mm and 78mm ( Nom.)
Other sizes are available to order. Timber is PEFC certified as standard.
For FFT1 requirements use a 78mm Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens.
For FFT3 requirements use a 53mm Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens or higher.

Laboratory values for Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens are shown below.

Please request CMS Danskin Performance Data sheets for test information on the Reflex Bearer Acoustic Battens with different structural floor and ceiling combinations.
