NOISE CONTROL BUILDING MATERIALS

Create Quiet...

Isolated Floors

Isolating floors can prevent vibration from entering structure at the point of impact. Kinetics offers systems that can mitigate massive impacts from dropped free weights to thin underlayments that will bring multi-family living units to code compliance. Stop noise at its source by isolating floors using a product from one of four performance categories.
