Hush - Panel 28
Floating Floor


Hush-Panel 28 has been developed as a sound reducing floor panel that can be used as a structural or an overlay floor board. When used as an overlay board the Hushfelt™resilient layer can be applied to help resolve any instance of undulating in the surface of the boards.

Excellent results are achieved in both refurbishment and new build projects when using Hush-Panel 28 as part of a sound insulation system for separating floors.

Fitting

1. Lay the Hush-Panel 28 Floating Flooring in a conventional broken bond pattern. When laying directly over joists, Hush-10 Joist Strips are simply stapled onto the joist tops prior to application.

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 orperimeter 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 a minimum of 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.
