"I’m one of these people that want a job done well. Quietco came to my house and did a demo on what the floor of what it look like. It wasn’t cheap but I understood the layout and of what was needed. I had problem with the floor squeaking because it was a new build house of two years old. They found the fault and fixed it, which was not in their job requirements. Jim is one of those people if he is not happy he would go out of his way to fix it.

The job was cleared up on time and I am very pleased with the result. One thing though you only get what you pay for. The floor did its job while we used the gym. Very pleased with the floor. Great job lads, thank you, I would not hesitate to use their service again."

TPS60F

What it does

Space saver soundproof flooring system that allows you to re-use the existing floor boards. It reduces sound travelling between the separating floor using the most advanced soundproofing materials compacted between the joists, in layers that will make very little change to the floor height.

Soundproof floor TPS60F

Where it works best

TPS60F soundproof flooring system is best suited for customers who want to expose wooden floor boards and are less concerned about noise transmitted down stairs. It is a great choice for those customers with historic period buildings where floor boards must be re-used or left exposed.

Airborne noise reduction 80%+
Impact noise reduction 80%+
20mm space loss

TPS80F

What it does

Reduces sound from the room below travelling through floor joists. The floating soundproof floor is isolated from the structure so noise finds it difficult to transmit into the new finished floor.

Where it works best

The TPS80F Ultimate soundproof flooring system is best suited for customers who want a good level of impact and airborne noise reduction. Best results are achieved when the walls are the existing render or treated with TPS30W.

It is a great choice for those customers who can afford the 20mm height change to the floor and/or customers who do not have access to the ceilings below and want the best soundproof floor system installed from above.

TPSE

What it does

Reduces sound travelling between the floor and the ceiling below, TPSE works hand in hand with TPS50C to meet the current edition of approved document Part E of the Building Regulations; resistance to the passage of sound.

TPSE floating soundproof floor system isolates the new floor from the structure through its resilient layers, giving great impact noise results from the floor to the ceiling below.

Soundproof floor using TPSE floating floor

Where it works best

The TPSE soundproof flooring system is best suited for customers treating impact noise from the floors above, where access to the floors is possible. To meet approved Part E of the Building Regulations, the ceiling below must also be treated. For more commercial work see our Office Soundproofing website.

It is a great choice for architects and developers renovating flats and separating floors

TPSP

What it does

Reduces sound travelling between the floor above and the ceilings below. The premium floating soundproof floor is isolated from the joists and all the walls in the room. The interlocking layers provide good airborne and impact noise improvement.

Where it works best

The TPSP soundproof flooring system is best suited for customers with severe impact noise problems such as footsteps, furniture moving and vibration from the floor above.

It is a great choice for customers that want to only soundproof the bedroom upstairs, this unique flooring system isolates the bedroom floor from the structure of the house, massively reducing vibration from the structure.

It is also used by developers and architects who design luxury apartments that require a premium level of soundproofing that far exceeds approved Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing floors with TPSP floating floor

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Flanking areas are those areas of your property where sound can transmit indirectly or by going around rather than directly through the main conflicting wall or floor.Even if the main conflicting surface has been soundproofed to a high standard, sound can still transmit through the flanking areas.Some flanking paths can be lounder than the direct paths. Examples of flanking areas for a party wall would be: the floor, ceiling, window wall, RSJ entering the party wall, stud walls, chimneys stacks, bay window ceilings.

A: This noise can be reduced by 80% with some of our systems. We have a range of floor systems designed to absorb and reflect this kind of noise. Although better to treat the noise at source by treating the ceilings below if possible.

A: If you are hearing impact noise such as footsteps and footfall, creaking floorboards, doors slamming, plug sockets and light switches, the soundproofing needs to be treated from above. We need to install a resilient layer between the neighbours floor joists and their floor boards. This means pulling up your neighbours flat floor and installing a floating floor isolated from the structure. Heavy duty underlay from specialist acoustic suppliers installed under the carpet will not solve the problem and more often makes creaking floor boards and similar noises worse. If you are experiencing loud music, TV, conversation, radio, alarm clocks and video games, then we can install a ceiling system such as TPS70C to your ceiling, offering a human perceived noise improvement of 70%. However if your walls are plaster-boarded, these will have to be treated as well in order to get the full integrity out of your ceiling investment.

A: Separating floor refers to flat living and includes the combined construction of ceiling and floor which separates the two flats where one occupant on the ground floor will have a ceiling separating the neighbour above and the occupant in the flat above will have a floor separating the neighbour below. It gets even more complicated because in many cases one flat owner will own the space in void between the ceiling and the floor.
