    Guide to Soundproofing a Floor with F-MUTE SYSTEM™

    Soundproofing a floor can greatly reduce both impact and airborne noise transmission, creating a quieter and more comfortable living or working environment. F-MUTE SYSTEM™ is a highly effective sound insulation solution suitable for various types of floorings. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to install F-MUTE SYSTEM™ for optimal soundproofing results:

    Materials Needed

    📌 F-MUTE SYSTEM™ sound insulation panels
    📌 DCstrip tape
    📌 DClant sealant
    📌 12-15 mm thick plasterboard floorboards
    📌 DCscrew 30 mm screws
    📌 Levelling screed (if required)


      Step 1: Prepare the Floor Surface

      Ensure that the existing floor surface is smooth, without any humps or unevenness exceeding 5 mm. If necessary, perform a levelling screed to create a flat and even base for the sound insulation installation.

      Step 2: Apply DCstrip Tape

      Adhere the DCstrip tape along the perimeter of the floor where the sound insulation panels will be installed. The tape should also cover the finishing layer of the gypsum board for flooring. This tape acts as a barrier to prevent sound leakage through the edges of the panels.

      Step 3: Start Panel Installation

      Begin installing the F-MUTE SYSTEM™ panels from the part of the floor in front of the door to avoid having a joint between two panels at the entrance of the room. Place the first panel and ensure it fits securely against the walls and the previously applied DCstrip tape.

      Step 4: Fill Panel Joint Gaps

      Fill the joint gaps between the panels with DClant sealant. This ensures a tight seal and minimizes sound transmission through the gaps. Follow our instructions for applying the sealant.

      Step 5: Continue Panel Installation

      Continue installing the panels, interlocking them tightly to cover the entire area of the room. Make sure each panel is securely connected to the previous one for optimal sound insulation performance.

      Step 6: Install Plasterboard Floorboards

      To complete the system, install 12-15mm thick plasterboard floorboards directly onto the F-MUTE SYSTEM™ panels. Secure the floorboards in place using DCscrew 30mm screws. This additional layer helps further enhance sound insulation and provides a stable base for the final flooring.

      Step 7: Finalize the Installation

      Once all the panels and floorboards are installed, ensure the entire floor surface is secure and stable. Check for any loose connections or gaps that may compromise the effectiveness of the soundproofing system. Make any necessary adjustments or repairs to ensure a proper installation.

      It is important to note that the sound insulation index achieved with F-MUTE SYSTEM™ can vary depending on factors such as building type, wall thickness, ceiling height, and other construction features. Each soundproofing project is unique and should be carefully evaluated for optimal results. If you require personal consultation or have specific questions, it is recommended to contact us for guidance.
