GROUND FLOORS

The location of insulation in ground bearing floors depends on the desired effect. Insulation below the slab increases thermal mass, making the building more resistant to temperature changes. Insulation above the slab reduces thermal mass, making the building respond more quickly to heating and cooling. Suspended floors are usually insulated above the slab to reduce thermal mass.

Exposed upper floors can be highly insulated by positioning insulation below or above the concrete floor. Below the concrete floor, the insulation can be laminated to a variety of materials to insulate and finish the floor in one process. Above the concrete floor, the insulation reduces the thermal mass of the floor and allows for fast warm up. The choice of where to position the insulation depends on the specific circumstances and requirements.

 

SEPARATING FLOORS

Mineral wool is a good soundproofing material for floors because it can be used as both a sound absorbent and resilient layer. It provides an alternative to simply increasing the mass of the floor. By installing a layer of mineral wool in floor voids, the sound reduction performance of floors can be greatly increased as it absorbs energy from airborne sound waves.

 

When designing internal floors in a dwelling, the designer must consider the structural capacity, Building Regulations, and acoustic and thermal separation of the floor. The floor must be able to support the dead and live loads, meet the minimum standards for structure and fire resistance, and provide spatial separation between the different areas of the dwelling in terms of sound and heat.
