A sound interior environment
Most new homes today utilise a timber i-joist to create an intermediate floor – the construction which will define the living spaces across multiple storeys within a development. While in commercial developments concrete and metal systems might be used, the principal will be the same – designated areas for specific usage are being created. Building Regulations will generally dictate the acoustic, fire and thermal performance which is demanded of the intermediate floor, with the reduction of impact sound often being a priority to ensure the environment is comfortable for the occupants. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation is ideal for use in intermediate floors as it delivers the full range of acoustic, thermal and fire resistance performance in a single solution.
