The University of Adelaide sought an airtight access floor system to decrease sound transmission through the floor between classrooms.
The 8-floor 6 Star Adelaide University project required an Air Tight access floor system. The acoustic properties of the access flooring were prioritised to decrease sound transmission through the floor between classrooms.
The Air Tight system from ASP Access Floors was innovatively combined with an acoustic foam baffle system, Soberfoam; the 25mm foam panels were fixed with an adhesive to the underside of the access floor panels. Additionally, the foam panels were also incorporated with ASP’s proprietary air highway system to provide insulated acoustic baffles between zones.
The access floor system used in the 10,000m² university project was a Steel Cementitious Ultra Fix stringerless Air Tight system with a 4.5Kn loading at 350mm FFH.
