What is a Resilient Layer?

Resilient Layers

A resilient layer is the technical term used to describe a material with excellent endurance and resistant properties. It is frequently used here to describe a materials excellent ability to eliminate noise transmission and help achieve Part E Building Regulations. In most cases resilient layers are effective in eliminating airborne noise transmission.

Resilient Layers for Floors

High density polyethylene soundproofing rolls are high performance resilient layers designed to be installed below a screeded floor. The screed floor provides the necessary mass to deal with impact noise, the high density resilient layers are installed to eliminate airborne noise transmission. Alternative resilient layers that may be used in this application are soundproofing rubber rolls.

Products Featuring Resilient Layers

It is common for resilient layers to feature on acoustic floor boards and dry screed boards. The floor board provides additional mass to eliminate impact noise, whilst the technically bonded resilient layer will cope with airborne noise transmission. Different types of resilient layer may be used based depending on the intended application, including moisture resistant and high compressive strength options.

High performance resilient layers also feature on acoustic wall lining boards to deal with noise transmission for new build and refurbishment walls.. Our ResoWall solution features a high compressive strength wood fibre resilient layer which effectively eliminates impact and airborne noise transmission.
