Soundproofing for condominiums and multi-unit buildings: Goodbye concrete screed

In the particular case of condominiums or multi-unit buildings, the conventional solution for soundproofing each floor is the installation of a concrete floor. Although effective, this process also brings its share of inconveniences:

Excessive weight (18 lbs/ft2), which requires more investment in the building structure.
Long drying time for the concrete screed (28 days where the space must be heated).
Input of moisture into the structure.
The concrete screed must be installed in one step, no downtime for the workers if necessary.

With our solution, you are assured of having an alternative that performs as well, but without all the disadvantages that concrete creates.

Eco-friendly

If the environment is important to you, choosing to use Fermacell flooring panels is a natural choice. Made exclusively of mineral or renewable materials (recycled paper fibers, gypsum and water – no additional binder added), the use of Fermacell also avoids the pouring of a concrete slab with high GHG emissions (greenhouse gases).

Making a positive environmental difference with better soundproofing products

All this is without mentionning the environmental benefits that can be achieved through the use of Fermacell sound absorbing floorboards. Indeed, the product is composed exclusively of recycled paper fibers, gypsum and water (without the addition of additional binder).

Significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions

The world production of cement corresponds to 7% of the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, which represents 5 billion tons. The GHG savings generated by our products for the production of concrete represent the equivalent of 47,700 km travelled by a standard car!

In fact, a study conducted by L2C for a 4-story multi-unit building in Longueuil reports that the use of our products would cause :

  • A saving of 39 m3 of concrete required for the foundations.
  • A 5% reduction in foundation costs.
