Hush - Panel 32
Floating Flooring

Hush-Panel 32 has been designed as an impact reducing floor panel, with added rigidity, that can be used as a structural or an overlay board. When used as a structural floor the stiffness of the upper layer accommodates wider joist centres, up to 600mm. A combination of the increase in mass and the Hushfelt™ resilient layer can produce superior results when used as part of a sound insulation system for separating floors.

 

 

 Benefits
  • versatile and economical panel for use in many situations requiring impact sound insulation between separating floors.
  • Used within refurbishment and new build projects to create a floating floor over concrete and timber or directly over timber joists*.
  • Suitable for wider joist centres.
  • 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).
  • Robust Details FFT5 compliant for floor structures EFC-1, EFC-2 and EFS-1.
  • Comprises of 22mm High Density P5 Moisture Resistant TG4 chipboard panels and a 10mm acoustic resilient layer of Hushfelt™ factory bonded to the underside.
  • Easy to install in a single time saving operation

*In conjunction with Hush-10 Joist Strips

Fitting

1. Lay the Hush-Panel 32 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 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).
