For this commercial office/retail project, the team at Nettles provided a gypsum floor underlayment over a sound mat on the 2nd floor office space that will be built out at a later date upon occupancy.
This is a commercial office/retails space so it was important to the architect that sound does not transfer between floors. In addition, this is a new construction project that is going to be built out as office space is leased, so there were few interior walls. This meant that we had a 9,300-square-foot open space to be poured prior to drywall installation.
The Nettles Solution
In order to solve the problem our client was dealing with, we installed a 1” gypsum underlayment over a ¼” sound mat to prevent impact noise from traveling through the floor.
The products we used included Maxxon Gypcrete and Maxxon Acousti-Mat. These two products are designed to work together and tests show they provide a dramatic increase in IIC ratings. Maxxon is a leader in the industry, and their materials are the highest quality and provide a great finish to install flooring over. Maxxon Gypcrete is also very eco-friendly, and will help to ensure safety and fire-proof protection as well as to meet other building codes.
