Monarfloor Fastfloor Acoustic Cassette Flooring Systems - Separating Party Floors (Apartments)

Monarfloor IWS Fastfloor Cassette Flooring Systems - Separating Party Floors (Apartments)

The Monarfloor IWS-Fastfloor has been developed to be the most straightforward, fully compliant floor system on the market today. The Separating Party Floor delivers superior acoustic performance, exceeding the Scottish, English and Welsh sound insulation regulations whilst allowing a timber floor to be constructed in a number of wall constructions, from aircrete blocks, aggregate blocks and timber frame.

The system is much more than the product itself. We have listened to the concerns of the building industry and have tried to improve our construction details to assist in the delivery of higher quality floor performance in this ever more demanding environment.

The joist is a unique variant of the original “engineered wood product,” solid timber. It possesses very reliable strength and stiffness characteristics and is the only engineered joist on the market today pre-treated to provide robust fire protection and prevent against insect attack, wood decay and water ingress. This allows it to retain its strength and straightness characteristics both during and after the build process.

  • Features and Benefits

    • Solid timber construction, possessing very reliable strength and stiffness characteristics.
    • The only engineered joist on the market today pre-treated to provide robust fire protection and prevent against insect attack, wood decay and water ingress. This allows it to retain its strength and straightness characteristics both during and after the build process.
    • The floor delivers superior acoustic performance, complying with all UK Building Regulations. Minimum specification floors without requiring insulation, sub-decks or additional layers of plasterboard.
    • Our floor can achieve sound reduction of 43dB with 220mm Joists with 12.5mm ceiling at 600mm joist centres.
    • Does not require ancillary products such as backer, filler, squash blocks, or ply gusset plates.
    • Service voids can be pre-machined in the product to allow the quick and trouble free installation of cables, pipes, SVP’s and HVAC systems.
    • Mid-span blocking/strutting can be omitted.
    • Reduces the range and number of connectors.
    • Faster build times - reduced site tolerances.
    • Brings major productivity gains to its partners’ manufacturing operations - standard house types.
    • Easy to nail.
    • Minimum waste.
    • All components identified.
    • Minimum number of connectors.
    • Castellation's ensure positive and quick location.
    • No mid-span blocking.
    • Factory manufactured Modern Methods of Construction floor.
    • Robust masonry walls providing excellent structural and thermal performance, together with the speed, economy and efficiency of the floor.
    • Timber floor is particularly suited to quick build masonry systems (only robust way to build timber floors in masonry for new build apartments).
    • Masonry as a practical alternative to framed timber build systems.
    • The use of a timber separating floor could significantly reduce costs in the foundations due to reduced loading, when compared to alternative separating floor materials such as precast planks.
    • Monarfloor Wall Cap isolates the masonry wall from the separating floor joists, reducing the acoustic flanking sound transmission


    Within the structure

    • The acoustic floor is mechanically fixed, thus reducing the issues of building internal fittings directly off it, plus there are many acoustic floor options from 25mm decks to traditional battens.
    • Option for screeded floor utilising modern fast drying proprietary screed with an isolation layer.
    • Potential for Flats Over Garages (FOG's) with Besblock party & flanking walls.
    • Acoustic performance - we have achieved 8dB plus for both impact & airborne (ADE) & Silver Standard (S7. Scotland).
  • Demonstration Video
