One Tower Bridge
StrataBase 3mm underlay
Marldon UK, a subsidiary of Havwoods Accessories, provided an effective sound dampening solution for the prestigious One Tower Bridge apartments in London, which still allowed the underfloor heating to work efficiently and effectively.
Sound transference is always a problem in apartment blocks, and particularly so in such an exclusive and prestigious location such as One Tower Bridge. Residents paying up to £15m for their property do not want to be disturbed by those above.
Traditional soundproofing solutions would have added up to 20mm in thickness to the sub-floor, significantly reducing the efficiency of the underfloor heating. A slimline, yet effective solution was required, in keeping with the exceptional build quality of this luxury development.
Marldon UK worked directly with the architects to develop an effective solution that satisfied both the acoustic and the thermal criteria required for this high specification development.
A 3mm underlay of StrataBase and a 1.5mm layer of MXA200 adhesive was recommended as the solution to provide low profile noise reduction.
This soundproofing solution has a very low tog rating, allowing heat to transfer effectively through the sub-floor, while still providing effective sound reduction between floors
The solution conformed to the development’s Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) in that it is VOC-Nil rated, certified EC1 and could contribute towards BREEAM rating.
