Regupol 6010 SH High-Load Bearing Acoustic Screed Isolation

Regupol® 6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material enhances the impact and airbourne acoustic properties of timber floors where loads exceed that of standard constructions.

Regupol® 6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material is a recycled tyre crumb product designed for use where very high loads are apparent yet acoustic performance is critical with performance requirements exceeding that of the standards quoted in Approved Document E 2003.

Regupol® 6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material enhances the impact and airbourne acoustic properties of timber floors where loads exceed that of standard constructions. For use in new build and refurbishment applications.

  • Regupol®6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material been independently tested by both UKAS accredited and ITA laboratories to show compliance with the new building regulations in accordance with Approved Document E 2003.
  • Maximum load bearing capacity of 100kN/m2(10000kg/m2)
  • Offers long term performance without collapse or ‘bottoming’ out under high point loads.
  • Minimal creep even under high loads.
  • Resistant to ageing and deformation.
  • Quick and easy to install.
  • High quality and exact material thickness guaranteed.
  • Suitable for use with under-floor heating.
  • Protects expansion joints.
  • Mildew and moisture proof.

Regupol®6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material was developed to greatly enhance the impact and airborne acoustic properties of screeds and timber based floors where loads exceed that of standard constructions.

Designed for a wide range of high performance isolation applications, Regupol®6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material is particularly suited to heavily loaded areas in:
  • Luxury apartments
  • Penthouses
  • Hotels
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Libraries
  • Retail
  • Music studios

With the availability of being able to use this product in both new build and refurbishments, gives the end user a multi-tasking material. Recent projects have included the isolation of car park membranes, penthouses, music studio’s, gymnasium floors etc. For specific advice relating to applications for Regupol®6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material, please contact CMS Danskin Technical Team.

Important steps before you lay Regupol® 6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material

Prepare the base floor. It is important that the base floor is clean (free from loose dirt and concrete dust), flat (within National Building standards +/-5mm over a 5m span) and where possible, dry.

Unroll the Regupol®. When the product is rolled up it stretches slightly. Unwind each roll where it
is to be installed and leave it for a few hours before measuring or cutting to length.

Laying Regupol® 6010 SH Acoustic Screed Isolation Material

The Regupol 6010SH perimeter strips must be installed first, with the materialbutted against the perimeter walls. These strips can either be cut to the requiredwidth on site using a sharp knife and straight edge or pre-cut strips can be ordered individually. N.B. The perimeter strips should be at least 10mm above the finished screed. Excess material to be trimmed after the screed has set. 

Use a sharp knife and straight edge for cutting to size.

Sainsbury’s

Sainsbury’s New Build Mixed-Use Retail Development

As part of a £40 million re-development of an existing shopping centre in Farnborough, a new Sainsbury’s was to be the anchor store. The development was designed as a mixed use site and after a review of the store it was identified that project contractors, RG Group, would need to prevent the impact/structure-borne noise from travelling from the store and into the residential apartments situated above.

RG Group, were required to install Regupol® 6010BA in order to provide high performance as well as ease of use, necessary in meeting the tight deadlines of the project.

 

The Solution

Acoustic consultants, 24 Acoustics, specified Regupol® 6010BA to ‘float’ the entire shop floor. Quick and easy to install, RG Group was able to cover an area of 4,000m2 efficiently against tight timescales.

Manufactured from recycled tyre crumb and resistant to ageing and deformation, Regupol® 6010BA has a maximum load bearing capacity of 50kN/m2 and performs well, even under high point loads. This was a specific consideration for Sainsbury’s as various point loads, such as plant rooms, would be apparent in the final fit-out of the store.

Regupol® 6010BA has also been proven to retain its performance characteristics for a long and maintenance free lifespan. A sustainable specification, Regupol® 6010BA offers zero GWP (Global Warming Potential) and zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential). Moreover, in addition to being manufactured from recycled materials, it is also completely recyclable.

 

The Result

Meeting the tight deadline imposed on the project was facilitated by the efficient and on-time deliveries of material to site and the quick and easy installation of Regupol® 6010BA. With an impact sound insulation of 43dB and airborne sound insulation of 65dB, Regupol® 6010BA achieved Sainsbury’s performance specifications and minimised sound transfer from the store.

Louis Vandermerwe, RG Group, commented: “We were extremely impressed with the turnaround times from CMS Acoustics. As soon as Regupol was identified as the most cost effective and high performing isolation solution to meet the project requirements, we needed to move quickly to installation. The material was delivered to site exactly when we needed and proved quick and easy to install.”
