Acoustic floating floor system, designed for commercial cinemas.

Features and benefits:

  • Suffers no compromises from low mass or high stiffness isolators to achieve the highest ratio of acoustic isolation performance to price in the CineFLOOR range.
  • Can be designed with a fully fibre reinforced concrete to allow easy seat installation without the risk of hitting the rebar.
  • Easy to install, with no operational maintenance required.
  • Self-compacting concrete can also be used to ensure high flatness tolerance is achieved to allow vinyl or carpet to be laid directly on top of it.
  • Part of a range of acoustic floating floor solutions for auditoriums of all shapes and sizes.
  • Provides complete flexibility in terms of dynamic stiffness and damping.
  • Warranty: Up to 25 years.
