CMS WB5 2mm Airborne Noise Reduction Barrier Mat is most commonly utilised in floor, ceiling and wall sound reduction applications to reduce transmission of airborne noise. Up to a 44dB reduction (max) at an average of a 22dB reduction.
Acoustic Barrier Mats are flexible and easily cut, easy to handle and install, and provide a cost effective sound barrier solution. It is a 2mm weight-enhanced, high-density, barium sulphate loaded, thermoplastic polymer barrier mat – plasticised with phthalate esters, containing mineral fillers, and bitumen free.
Tested and rated at a UKAS certified independent test laboratory according to: BS EN ISO 717-1: 1997; BS EN ISO 140-3: 1995; BS EN ISO 2750: Part 3: 1995; Flammability FMVSS 302 Zero Burn Rate; Tensile Strength BS2782:Part 3:1976 5.75N/mm2; and Elongation at break (BS2782:Part 3:1976) 100%.
When installing CMS WB5 Acoustic Barrier Mats on to the sub-floor – ensure the sub-floor is clean, dirt free, with any lumps removed. Butt the 2mm sheets together on the sub-floor and either tape them together with a strong tape or bond them to sub-floor using a polyurethane based contact adhesive. Use a sealant around the edge of the room to ensure any gaps are filled. Your underlay or flooring can be laid directly on to the barrier mat – and stuck-down if required.
If installing CMS WB5 Acoustic Barrier Mats on to walls or ceilings – they can be fixed in place by tack pins & washers, banding, or bonding using a polyurethane based contact adhesive – and then covered by a standard or SoundBlock plasterboard.
