Monarfloor Tranquilt

Lightweight Acoustic Isolation System For Floating Screeds on new-build projects.

Monarfloor® Tranquilt® reduces impact and flanking sound transmission within pre-cast and in-situ concrete separating party floors in new-build and refurbishment projects by forming an isolation layer between the sub-floor and the finished screed.

When installed as part of a complete sound reduction system it enables a concrete floor to surpass the performance requirement's of Approved Document E of the Building Regulations, and provide high credits towards EcoHomes & The Code for Sustainable Homes.

    Installation at a glance

    • Ensure concrete sub floor is structurally sound, clean and dry.
    • Roll out Monarfloor Tranquilt over the concrete sub floor with the jointing strip to the upper surface face. It is advised that all the Tranquilt be loose laid out over whole floor area to ensure that it’s positioned correctly before joining.
    • Turn the perimeter edges up to all perimeters, 150mm minimum.
    • Butt edges tightly together, with the overlapping polyethylene uppermost and glue to adjoining Tranquilt using Monarfloor Acoustic Adhesive.
    • Form the corners to the contour of the up-stands and adhere with Monarfloor Acoustic Adhesive. Ensure sufficient upstand to fold over to flank any skirting or architrave.
    • Lay a minimum of 65mm sand and cement or minimum 40mm proprietary screed over the Tranquilt.
    • Complete construction and install skirting using the protruding Tranquilt to form an isolation between skirting and screed, trimming off any excess flush with the skirting.
