Suitable for use in separating floor/ ceiling constructions in conversion, refurbishment and new build developments. The system can be used to reduce sound transmission in domestic dwellings – houses and apartments – as well as buildings used for education, hotels, care homes, offices and hospitals.

Any building constructed using concrete separating floors may benefit from this system providing the floor and ceiling can both be treated.

Summary of building types that are most suitable for this system :

  • Domestic (houses and apartments/ flats)
  • Healthcare and hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Care homes
  • Schools, colleges and universities
  • Student accommodation buildings
  • Commercial offices


The HD1037 Hush Batten 55 System MF provides a highly effective acoustic solution for concrete separating floors through the use of the Hush Acoustic Batten Systems range.

The system combines these resilient floor battens with a number of other sound insulating materials to create a floating floor that very effectively reduces impact and airborne sound transmission.

The design of the HD1037 system means that it creates a service void above and below the structure. This is due to the acoustic battens above the concrete slab and through the installation of Hush MF ceiling system below.

Its sound reduction performance capabilities make it suitable for new build, conversion and refurbishment projects.

HD1037 complies with all the UK Building Regulations relating to acoustics - Approved Document E (England & Wales), Section 5 (Scotland) and Part G (Northern Ireland). And it provides a 1 hour fire resistance.

How the HD1037 system is formed:

  • The Hush Batten system is installed over concrete structure.
  • A Hush-Felt 10 resilient layer is installed to cover the entire floor area.
  • Hush-Batten 55 Acoustic Battens are installed felt face down over the Hush-Felt layer at required centres.
  • 18mm/22mm T&G chipboard is screwed and glued fixed to the top of the Hush-Batten 55 with the perimeters of the chipboard isolated using the Hush range of flanking strips to suit.
  • The Hush-MF system is fitted to the underside of the concrete structure. It is important to ensure that a minimum 150mm void is created from the back of the concrete structure to the back of the plasterboard lining.
  • Hush-Slab 100 Sound Absorber is fitted tightly together within the ceiling void.
  • A double plasterboard layer is installed to the underside of the Hush-MF system consisting of 19mm Plasterboard Plank and 12.5mm Soundbloc.
  • All perimeters are sealed with the Hush Acoustic Sealant prior to skimming.
