insulit Bi+8

Foam + felt, comfort and security 28 dB


The underlay for a superior acoustic comfort between floors

insulit Bi+8 is an acoustic underlay designed to limit the transmission of impact and airborne noise between floors. Building on the success of the insulit Bi+7, we wanted to obtain with its successor, the insulit Bi+8, an even easier installation of the product. We also wanted to develop a much more resistant product with an improved acoustic performance.

This new product belongs to our premium range. Recent tests carried out by the BBRI according to EN ISO 717-2 are proving its outstanding performance. If installed on a concrete slab, under a floating screed of ± 6 cm thickness, it is possible to measure a ∆Lw of 28 dB! To achieve even better results, we recommend using a thermal levelling screed.


Foam + felt: unique acoustic performances!


insulit Bi+ 8 is made of an embossed, physically crosslinked polyolefine foam (thickness ≥ 3,5 mm) with closed micro cells, combined to an acoustic felt with a low dynamic stiffness (thickness ≥ 5 mm). A bi-component underlay is far more efficient than a single layer acoustic solution: the foam and the felt altogether are able to cover a much larger frequency range, where the felt absorbs low frequencies and the foam absorbs medium and high frequencies.




Benefits
