Soundproofing for flooring applications
It is critical not to sacrifice fire ratings for sound ratings
The best way to accomplish improved sound performance for floor coverings and maintain a safe fire rating is to install a sound reduction mat or board beneath the floor underlayment.
LEVELROCK™ sound systems are both UL fire-rated and meet or exceed IBC code requirements. From interior wood frame construction to corrugated steel deck buildings, LEVELROCK™ installed by Nufloor Systems is your best sound solution.
LEVELROCK™ sound systems were the first in the industry that are both UL fire-rated and meet or exceed IBC code requirements. From interior wood frame construction to corrugated steel deck buildings – Nufloor Systems is your source for sound reduction flooring and fire rated flooring materials.
UL Fire Protection Flooring
USG designed a balance between acoustic separation and fire protection with LEVELROCK™ Flooring. Both are important to prevent owner and builder liability.
Insulation thickness, placement in the cavity, and resilient channel spacing must all conform to the limits specified in the UL design.
LEVELROCK™ is designed to meet the new International Building Code (IBC) and the first to ensure that all sound systems are fire-rated and easily specified by a UL Design number.
LEVELROCK™ floor underlayment systems provide 1- and 2-hour fire-resistance ratings for wood-framed floor/ceiling assemblies and up to 3- and 4-hour ratings for structural concrete assemblies.
