The Fermacell soundproofing floor system is the perfect solution for your residential or commercial construction project. This product, used worldwide in a multitude of energy efficient buildings, is distributed exclusively by DCC Solutions in Canada.
Are you in the process of planning or constructing a multi-unit building? If so, there is no need to teach you that you will need a soundproofing solution to acoustically isolate the different floors, so that the occupants are comfortable.
The conventional solution to this is to pour a concrete screed between each floor. However, this solution is expensive, has a strong ecological footprint and requires a very long drying time (space heating and delay for other trades). Fortunately for you, there is an alternative that is just as powerful, but without all the drawbacks that the traditional method causes.
The Fermacell 2E31 sound-absorbing floor sheet can be used as a dry screed as well as in renovation, during the transformation of existing buildings but also as part of new projects.
The Fermacell 2E32 sound-absorbing floor sheet with mineral wool consists of 2 fiber-gypsum sheets 10 mm thick, glued in the factory, leaving an offset of 50 mm; it is coated on its underside with a 10 mm thick mineral wool plate.
Superior acoustic and thermal insulation
Good for the environment
Discover how our floor insulation and soundproofing solutions surpass traditional soundproofing solutions in every way. Say goodbye to concrete screeds and replace your apartment, condo or house floor soundproofing processes with our Fermacell products.
With our solution, avoid downtime for workers, because the installation can be done according to the availability of each one and no waiting for the next stages of construction. No need to manage humidity as with concrete, which results in savings in heating and materials for the whole building.
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). In addition, the weight savings caused by the use of Fermacell compared to the concrete screed significantly reduces the amount of material required for the building structure. A study carried out by L2C for a 4 levels multi-unit building in Longueuil reports that the use of Fermacell would cause:
Installation: Can be installed in several stages
Time for the installation of the floor covering: 24 hours
Humidity: No humidity in the building
Heating: Only required for a 24 hour period during installation
Weight: Low (5.3 lbs / ft2)
Can be laid in several stages
Must be done in 1 single, long step
Delay for the installation of the floor covering
No added humidity in the building
Requires additional humidity control in the building
Only required for a 24 hour period during installation
Required throughout the curing of the concrete, i.e. 28 days
Light (5.3 lbs / ft2)
Heavy (18 lbs / ft2)
Commercial and institutional construction can benefit from the Fermacell soundproofing floor system due to its speed of installation. No more having to wait 28 days to let a concrete screed dry, your contractors can continue the work in barely 24 hours.
Whether you are a building contractor or an individual who self-builds your home, the ease of installation of Fermacell soundproofing floorboards represents a significant advantage, both in terms of your time and the savings to be made.
