CMS ACOUSTICS - Regupol 4515 Eco Awards Flexible Acoustic Control At Caspian Wharf

Regupol 4515 Eco, a rubber and cork acoustic underlayment, has been installed in Pacific Court the second phase of apartments to be released at Berkeley Homes development, Caspian Wharf in Bow to provide cost effective impact sound insulation. Compatible with a range of floor finishes and underfloor heating systems, Regupol 4515 Eco delivered Part E compliant acoustic dampening beneath carpet and vinyl flooring.

In an effort to regenerate London’s waterways, the Berkeley development was intended to serve the housing needs of business professionals by exemplifying the highest in quality of living. As excess impact sound transfer can cause considerable discomfort to residents in lower level apartments, the remit included the provision of an acoustically sound environment. Comprising of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments and penthouses, it was vital that any acoustic solution selected was suitable for use in a broad range of applications.

Specified to satisfy Part E requirements, flooring contractor, Loughton Contracts installed 4,000m² of 4.5mm Regupol 4515 Eco with water based acrylic dispersion Regubond 100 in 171 apartments. Applied beneath vinyl and carpet flooring in all dwellings, the robust acoustic underlay delivers acoustic attenuation under a range of floor finishes. In addition, system performance is retained even with the use of underfloor heating, making Regupol 4515 Eco one of the most versatile acoustic products on the market.

Effectively minimising impact energy transfer by attenuating the sound at source, Regupol 4515 Eco offers long term performance without the risk of collapse under high point loads. Manufactured from 100 percent recycled and recyclable material, it generates zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and zero global warming potential (GWP). As a sustainable yet cost competitive acoustic solution, Regupol 4515 Eco is an attractive proposition for developers aiming to satisfy strict Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) criteria.

Chan Sau, divisional manager, Loughton Contracts, explained: “Regupol 4515 Eco met all of the client’s acoustic requirements in one convenient product and thanks to our positive experience at Pacific Court, we will be using the product in further phases of the Caspian Wharf development.”

Available in standard 18m and 20m rolls from CMS Acoustics, the UK’s largest provider of acoustic solutions, Regupol 4515 Eco has exact material thickness guaranteed at both 3mm and 4.5mm to minimise construction heights. Facilitating a quick and simple installation, the acoustic material can be cut to size and bonded directly to the subfloor.

Paul Absolon, technical director, CMS Acoustics, concluded: “In high rise new builds achieving Part E compliance without sacrificing room height is crucial. With guaranteed thicknesses, Regupol 4515 Eco helps maximise ceiling heights to ensure best possible use of the available space.”

A flexible solution to acoustic challenges, Regupol 4515 Eco is suitable for use in a wide range of residential and commercial developments including apartments, educational buildings, hotels and leisure complexes.

Manufactured in Germany by BSW, the complete Regupol range is available exclusively in the UK through CMS Acoustics. For further details on Regupol and other CMS Acoustics’ products, please email below.
