Monarfloor Wall Cap 250 Timber

Acoustic isolation and energy insulating system for timber separating party cavity walls within multi-rise developments.

Monarfloor® Wall Cap 250 isolates the timber twin stud from the separating floor joists, reducing the acoustic flanking sound transmission within the structure. Monarfloor Wall Cap 250 also ensures the integrity of acoustic floating floor treatments for party floors.

    Installation at a glance

    • Roll out the Wall Cap membrane as a continual layer to both the head and sole plate. (This may be done in the manufacturing premises or on-site).
    • Centre the membrane and form a return.
    • Once centred and located staple the membrane to the timber frame with an industrial staple gun.
    • Trim any excess membrane using a sharp utility knife ensuring the integrity of the membrane is not damaged.
    • The panels can then be constructed on-site in the normal manner.

    For optimum acoustic isolation, Wall Cap 250 should be installed at every party wall and floor junction.
