Online PR News – 25-March-2010 – – It is often not understood that the quality and construction of flooring in a work environment is of crucial importance when it comes to the well-being of the building’s occupants, and their ability to concentrate on their tasks. Floors and walls that have been given little or no attention in this respect can have a devastating impact on a company’s performance, so it is crucial in a new build or conversion to give them the attention they deserve. It is particularly difficult to make changes once installation of the other office features has been completed.

For over 25 years Hush (UK) has concentrated on providing wall and floor solutions for new build and refurbishment projects throughout the UK, and their expertise is second to none in this highly specialised area. Reducing sound transmission between adjoining rooms and between floors requires careful testing and consultation, followed by application of a range of technologies. There are many options from which to choose, and the one that best suits the situation is not necessarily the most expensive. In the current difficult economic climate it makes sense to tailor the solution to an affordable, effective package rather than simply throw money at the problem. Hush’s trademark quality is never sacrificed whatever the choice.

At the heart of the Hush soundproofing system is a unique product called Hushfelt. Made from recycled fibres, Hushfelt is the core constituent of our range of tailored noise reduction solutions. The Hush-Felt 25 product, for instance, is very popular as a cheaper alternative to composite flooring and can, depending on the particular circumstances, be just as effective. The Hush range of floating acoustic flooring utilises boards and panels in a flexible system to reduce sound transmission, and coupled with Resilient Flooring Battens and Cradles, and decoupling of the ceiling joists by the use of ceiling and wall bars, the effect is to create an effectively soundproofed space.

Ease of installation of Hush systems is an important factor often cited by clients, together with the wealth of technical expertise readily available to help make the choice of which system to go for. It may or may not be necessary to use the Hush-slab 100 Sound Absorber joist infill to reduce airborne sound transmission between floors and walls, or the pre-packaged Hush-Fill 60 Heavy Pugging product between floors. The choice will come down to individual circumstances, and an initial consultation usually quickly reveals what’s needed.
