KINGSPAN Gains Its First Acoustideck Contract

Kingspan Access Floors has gained its first contract for Acoustideck, a new flooring system which is designed to significantly reduce noise through party floors whilst also offering easy access to pipes and cables in the floor void.

Kingspan is supplying 2,500m2 of 38mm Acoustideck modular panels to Carillion for installation in the new Oasis Academy Mayfield at Southampton. The project is due to complete in the summer of 2012.

The 600mm panels are being installed in classrooms, drama and music rooms and recording studios. The panels are fully accessible and interchangeable, offering very localised and easy access to the floor void. This is a major advantage over traditional floor systems where access is difficult, often resulting in damage to the floor panels or boards.

Carillion Operations Manager David Mills said: “When awarding the contract we looked at the technical performance of the product, price, the financial stability of the companies tendering, previous work and their green credentials.”

“Kingspan met all our criteria. For example recycling is an important factor at Oasis Mayfield, where we have set a recycling target of over 86 per cent. Kingspan is taking off-cuts from its panels and pedestals and is recycling them at its Hull site so they can be put back into the manufacturing process,” he added.

Kingspan Acoustideck panels can be removed individually or several at a time, permitting varied access routes. They are easily put back in place and locked down for maximum rigidity and stability. The finished floor height can be as low as 45mm.

The pedestal base houses a unique Kingspan snap-on flexible thermo plastic rubber pad to enhance acoustic performance.

The Acoustideck system is lightweight, reducing floor slab loadings, and is solid underfoot to prevent creaking and rocking. Acoustideck exceeds the impact sound requirements of Building Regulations Part E when used with an appropriate structural floor and ceiling construction.
