Hush - Fill 60
Heavy Pugging


Hush-Fill 60 Heavy Pugging is a granular mineral filler specifically designed to meet the required density of 80kgs/m² at the 60mm regulation depth specified within UK Building regulations for sound insulation between timber floor joists. It is a most effective means of reducing the airborne sound transmission between separating floors within a timber construction and has been expressly packaged to enable easy and accurate installation.


 

 Benefits
  • Traditional method of reducing the transmission of airborne sound between timber separating floors within refurbishment projects
  • Upgrades the airborne performance of separating floors whilst allowing decorative lath and plaster ceilings to remain intact
  • Ideal for projects where restrictions apply, such as upgrading listed buildings
  • Compatible with a range of Hush-Systems, designed to exceed the current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales), Part H (Scotland) and Part G(Northern Ireland).
  • Comprises 2-10mm dry mineral fill, packed in polythene tubes which double as the required liner below the fill.

Safety

  • Joist loadings must always be checked by a structural engineer prior to specification or use.
  • Hush-Fill 60 must never be installed directly onto a plasterboard or lath and plaster ceiling, supporting shelves should be constructed – see fitting instructions.
  • Hush-Fill 60 tubes weigh approximately 25kg each and care must be taken when manually handling and lifting.

Fitting

Cut the Hush-Slabs to the required void width using a sharp saw or long blade, and starting at one of the room perimeters, begin fitting the slabs in between the floor joists or wall studs. At the end of each run, cut the last slab to the required length and then continue the process until all voids are filled, ensuring there are no gaps. Any excess trimmings can be used to pack in alongside the full slabs, avoiding any waste. Hush-Slabs can be friction fitted from below when using within a ceiling system.
