Floor slab (In-situ concrete slab on profiled steel decking or pre-cast units) Proprietary battens with integral resilient foam strip Notes This floating floor treatment is a Robust Detail floor treatment (FFT 1) when used with 18 mm (minimum) tongue and groove flooring board and resilient composite battens at least 70 mm deep. Total clearance ≥ 70 mm when loaded to 25 kg/m2. The timber batten is bonded to resilient foam strips at the top or at the bottom. For additional performance, a 19 mm gypsum-based board may be included under the flooring board (optional).

See Section 4 for floor and ceiling treatment options. The frame used for boxing in may be timber or light steel. 2 Services in separating walls Services within separating walls must be detailed appropriately to ensure that the acoustic performance of the separating wall is not impaired. The usual solutions are to stagger services on either side of the wall and provide additional layers of gypsum-based board where the wall board is penetrated. Typical details for services in light steel framed separating wall are given.

3 Board and resilient bars Floor slab (In-situ concrete slab on profiled steel decking or pre-cast units) C D 1 layer of gypsum-based board (nominal 8 kg/m² or 10 kg/m²) Resilient bars Timber batten (Optional for in-situ slabs on profiled metal decking) Notes Proprietary resilient bars decouple the ceiling from the floor slab and enhance acoustic insulation of the floor. For in-situ concrete slabs supported by profiled steel decking: • Ceiling board must be at least 8 kg/m2 of gypsum-based board • C must be ≥ 300 mm for use with RD (E-FS-1) • Resilient bars may be fixed directly to the underside of the deck.
