Gypsol and our SoundBar system are selected by the UK’s leading Retirement Homes developer, McCarthy & Stone. In a continuation of our ongoing strong relations between this client and their sub contractor, Glenalmond Contracts will be busy on site in Inverness, Capital of the Scottish Highlands over the coming two to three months preparing and building up this acoustic insulated screed system suitable with a timber joisted floor.
The SoundBar system is a fully tested and approved flooring option for architects and clients to design and deliver floors to the highest of standards, and offering the comfort and strength of a Gypsol screed integral to the acoustic performance between separating floors. The key components that make up this system are the two component 35mm thick acoustic board laid under a self- compacted dense liquid screed, as supplied in Inverness by the UK’s leading screed Gypsol.
Through rigorous laboratory tests, The SoundBar System exceeded Part E stringent performance requirements for the transfer of both Airborne and Impact Sound; >45dB and <63dB respectively.
Like most technical systems, the “Devil is in the Detail” and thankfully for this key- client team, Glenalmond Contracts’ installers are hand- picked for their careful attention and preparation of the floor prior to our screeds being laid on site. SoundBar boards are laid staggered and tightly fitted with perimeter flanking noise strips securely fitted to ensure conformity with test results and the acoustic requirements of these apartments in the future.
This Gypsol TimBRE screed was produced by Scotscreed in Dundee; a manufacturer of the very highest quality- controlled screeds and concrete products. With this winning team, it is no surprise to see a great start on site when our Scottish area manager Daniel Gordon visited Inverness in middle of March. He spent a day looking at delivered screeds arriving on site, checking flows and setting times as well as offering practical site and design information to the main contractor management team.
With supply to the best quality screeds, available to Inverness and the Highlands being delivered by Scotscreed, we look forward to many further projects in these areas being fulfilled in the coming months.
Local architects should contact Daniel Gordon for CPD presentation and further technical guidance and specification support.
