Sound-absorbing floor

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.

Floor soundproofing: An essential element

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.

Fermacell Floor Insulation: Innovation in residential and commercial soundproofing

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:

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