Quiet as a whisper every step of the way

The flooring in your new home: you will be walking and standing on it every day. Which flooring system is the right one? Parquet, laminate, tile or stone flooring? This truly fundamental decision should be well-prepared. Stone flooring, for example, is “louder” than flooring made of wood. It requires a good subsurface which insulates the impact sound and also promotes thermal insulation effects. Using modern dry screed systems, you can create the correct basis for undisturbed living enjoyment. Here, too, you can do plenty of things yourself. Take detailed advice when selecting your system – best of all from your EUROBAUSTOFF specialist trader.

Obtaining floors quickly and easily

Innovative dry screed systems on gypsum fibre basis provide good sound insulation characteristics and optimise the room climate. They consist of homogeneous, continuous single-layered panels which can be quickly and securely laid and locked through a convenient click system. The fit accuracy of the panels permits almost jointless surfaces, which no longer have to be filled in the joint areas. The system is suitable for use in wet rooms and is a good subsurface for all standard commercially available floorings and floor heating systems. 

Thin elements against footfall sound

Special gypsum fibre screed panels combined with a levelling fill massively reduce the footfall sound on solid floors. Even with a low installation height of 45 mm in connection with a ≥ 20 mm-thick levelling fill, footfall sound measurements improve by31 dB. The panels can also be laid directly onto the solid floor – in only one working step. Then, too, the system impresses with a footfall sound improvement of 27 dB – ideal for living areas. 

Tiles require “calming” subsurfaces

Tiles and stone slabs determine the look of our floors, not only in the kitchen and the bathroom, but also increasingly in bedroom and living areas. The disadvantage: hard heels click, Bobby cars clatter; such sounds can be heard over the entire house. The solution: lining systems and decoupling layers quieten the subsurfaces under tile and stone flooring. These layers are equipped with particularly sturdy nubs. They can withstand any tile format and can even be laid in rooms which are frequently walked over, such as hallways and kitchens. The systems insulate sound in a room and limit the sound carried into the rooms below. Another advantage: tile coverings are decoupled from critical subsurfaces and permanently securely lined in combination with ceramic floor coverings.

Ecology at your feet

Dry screed panels made of the renewable raw material wood do not just convince customers through their high ecological value. They provide optimum subsurfaces for floating or screw-mounted solid wooden floorboards, parquet and laminate. These elements are particularly pressure-resistant, can withstand appropriate loads and are pleasant to walk on. They can be laid onto level, load-bearing subsurfaces such as wood or concrete, on dry fill material or other pressure-resistant materials. The springs milled into the panels improve their sound insulation effect. Another advantage is the good thermal insulation properties of the wooden panels: they form a full-surface insulation layer which prevents the formation of thermal bridges.

OSB makes for good floors

A floor structure using OSB panels provides lightweight constructions particularly able to bear loads. OSB (Oriented Strand Boards) designates a manufacturing method in which long wood chippings are glued in precisely defined layers to form particularly high-performance wood-based material panels. Their properties accord with those of the base material, wood. OSB can for example also take on load-bearing and reinforcing functions. OSB in a tongue and groove system creates extremely sturdy, footfall sound insulation and variable laying panels for any rooms in your new construction – in particular, of course, if this is completely or in part made from the natural material wood.
