Hush - Panel 17
Floating Flooring

Hush-Panel 17 has been designed as a thinner overlay board to minimise floor build where required, without compromising performance. Hush-Panel 17 reduces impact sound transmission through separating floors, achieving excellent results. The upper layer of moisture resistant MDF provides a uniformly smooth surface for application of floor finishes.


  • Excellent acoustic performance
  • Ideal for areas with limited room height
  • Used within refurbishment and new build projects to create a floating floor over concrete and timber floors
  • Exceeds current Building Regulation requirements of Part E (England and Wales),
    Part H (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland) when used as part of a recommended sound insulation system.
  • Robust Details FFT5 compliant for floor structures EFC-1, EFC-2 and EFS-1.
  • Comprises 9mm Moisture Resistant TG4 MDF panels and a 10mm acoustic resilient layer of Hushfelt™ factory bonded to the underside.

*In conjunction with Hush-10 Joist Strips

1. Lay the Hush-Panel 17 Floating Flooring in a conventional broken bond pattern.

2. Glue all teegee joints using Hush-Bond Panel Adhesive.

3. Leave a 10-15mm expansion gap around all perimeters and press in Hush-Seal 20 Perimeter Seal ensuring that the floor floats freely of the walls maintaining acoustic isolation or perimeter detail as per Robust Detail instructions using Hush-RD Flanking Strip.

At door thresholds, access hatches or in the absence of a teegee joint Hush-Grommet Fixing Isolators can be used sparingly to eliminate ‘lipping’. No other fixings should be used when fitting the floating floor as any restrictions can adversely affect performance. Skirting should be fitted two or three millimeters clear of the floor surface. (PCT only).

Full fitting instructions are supplied with all products and are available to download from the Installation Guides section.
