When installation our MuteMat™ flooring systems, it is essential to line the perimeter of each room when installing a new subfloor, or installing any hard floor finishes.
Perimeter Flanking Band – FB8 is an absolute essential in floor soundproofing systems and one that is often overlooked. Perimeter Flanking Bands are to line the perimeter of any room that is using rigid materials that would come into contact with the walls. It acts as a buffer, one that reduces Flanking Transmission, by creating a barrier between floor and wall. It is to be installed along with any installation of a new subfloor in timber builds, even if you plan to install a woven carpet. It is for when you are installing any hard floor finish such as the examples below. These are because a timber overboard is required with some of our flooring options.
- Engineered wood
- Luxury vinyl tile
Screeding also benefits from the use of a Flanking Band as it helps to decouple the new floating screed from being in immediate contact with the walls.
- 8mm x 150mm x 50m
- Vital decoupling for flooring systems to separate floor and wall
- Suitable for concrete screeding applications, and when installing hard floor finishes
- Also suitable for timber structures when installing a new subfloor, and when installing hard floor finishes
- Closed cell foam structure
- Plastic apron to keep an airtight seal with adhesive
Install Perimeter Flanking Band where there are to be rigid surfaces coming into contact with the wall.
Screeding will also be in the same application.
