Reducing Footstep noise in residential properties

Client:Short Construction

In May 2018 we visited this 5-bed detached home located in Knutsford, Cheshire, an area that is known for the rich and famous.

The property is occupied by an English professional football player, who was experiencing noise issues with the flooring of his snooker room. The footstep noise which was being created when using the room, was generating nuisance noise within the living area, directly below, which was making it difficult to enjoy the space.

Hush Approved installers

Working with Short Construction who are high quality building contractors based in Wilmslow, Cheshire we supplied 167 sheets of our Hush Panel 33 to solve the issue.

Hush Panel 33 is a versatile, high performing acoustic flooring which is used within timber frame developments. With a combination of our eco-friendly acoustic felt and our rubber barrier mat, the Hush Panel 33 performs to all UK Building Regulation requirements as well as the Robust Detail performance targets for timber frame developments. Its unique composition makes it easy to install and quick to use.

How the Hush Acoustic Panel 33 Works

The product works by creating a high mass barrier and isolating the floor finish from the structure. As the nuisance noise issue in this situation was due to impact noise it was key to introduce a high performing acoustic floor product to break the connection of the floor finish from the structure. This in turn improved the impact performance of noise transmission through the floor structure. Including Hush Panel 33 into this property gave the high profile client the desired effect and allows him to use the area in question as intended.
