Regupol Acoustic Isolating Strips

Regupol® Acoustic Isolating Strips for both timber/metal stud frames and blockwork

We have Regupol® Acoustic Isolating Strips for both timber/metal stud frames and blockwork. Just click on the appropriate tab for more detailed information.

Regupol® Acoustic Isolating Strips are designed to isolate noise and vibrations at source.

Regupol® Acoustic Isolating Strips are a very simple and effective way to reduce structure borne noise. There are a number of different Regupol® materials that can be installed as isolating strips each one tailored to withstand a specific weight per linear metre therefore we have a Regupol® solution for all particular requirements.

  • Our Acoustic Isolating Strips offer long term performance without collapse or ‘bottoming out’ under high point loads
  • Standard thickness 6mm although other thicknesses are available upon request
  • Capable of withstanding loads up to and including 0.8N/mm2 with low frequency performance achieved
  • Resistance to ageing and deformation
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Minimises construction heights
  • High quality and exact material thickness guaranteed

Regupol® Acoustic Isolating Strips are constructed of a rubber crumb product. It is designed to isolate noise and vibrations at source.

Hard Days Night Hotel Acoustic Isolation Case Study

Hard Days Night Hotel Acoustic Isolation Case Study

Regupol studwork isolating strips helped prevent flanking sound between suites at the new Hard Days Night hotel in Liverpool.

 

The Challenge

When a suitable site was finally found for Hard Days Night, the eagerly anticipated Beatles themed hotel in Liverpool, an ambitious two-year development plan was put in place to convert the historic listed building into a prestigious four star hotel.

Extensive alterations to the internal area of the building created 110 guest bedrooms, which included two exclusive Lennon and McCartney suites, bars, restaurants and function rooms as well as a wedding chapel.

Designed to create a unique environment with a high quality feel, it was essential that Hard Days Night lived up to the expectations of the many visitors it would welcome. Part of this meant ensuring that bedrooms were adequately soundproofed, to ensure guests were not disturbed.

As with many refurbishment projects, the floor construction was timber, which left Hornport Construction, the main contractors on the project, tasked with finding a compatible acoustic treatment that would help prevent sound transfer between bedrooms.

 

The Solution

Although internal wall isolation was the specified acoustic treatment, Hornport Construction was able to make the final purchasing decision as to which products would be used. After consultation with CMS Acoustic Solutions, Regupol studwork isolating strips were identified as the most cost effective solution to deliver the required acoustic performance.

Manufactured from recycled polyurethane (PUR) foam, Regupol studwork isolating strips are supplied at a standard thickness of 6mm, and widths to suit specific development requirements. Sitting beneath all types of timber partitions, the studwork strips reduce structure borne noise by absorbing sound and de-coupling the connection between floor and wall constructions.

Resistant to ageing and deformation, Regupol studwork isolating strips offer long-term performance and will not collapse under high point loads.

Available exclusively in the UK through CMS Acoustic Solutions, Regupol studwork isolating strips are supplied with comprehensive installation guidelines, making it simple for contractors to install independently on site. Easily laid, the Regupol material is bonded straight to the subfloor, with the partition erected directly on top.

 

The Result

At the Hard Days Night Hotel, Regupol studwork isolating strips were used to isolate the party walls separating the corridors and bedrooms. Designed specifically for use with timber, Regupol studwork isolating strips offered the ideal solution to isolate a party wall sitting on an existing timber floor.

Gerry Abraham, site manager, Hornport Construction, concludes: “The Hard Day’s Night is a four-star hotel, so high acoustic standards were imperative. We initially looked at timber sole plates with pre-fitted isolating strips, but this was quite an expensive route. We consulted CMS Acoustics who were able to provide a cost effective and high performing alternative with the Regupol studwork isolating strip – which was just as quick and easy to use.”
