Vibration/Sound Commercial

Chap Member Posts: 42
Here are the ratings we are trying to overcome with a gypcrete system.

One hour fire rated floor/ceiling assembly STC lab sound rating of 50 or STC field sound rating of 45 IIC lab impact rating of 50 or IIC field impact rating of 50 The assembly must have these components: Gypcrete OSB floor sheathing Min. 9 1/2" I Joists Res. Channel 5/8x or 5/8c drywall

I have also talked with the gypcrete guy who says Fracture Gaurd 5000 can also help in sound and vibration dampening but I cant find any case studies on it.

Still trying to find some alternatives to acoustimat under gypcrete. I really want to staple the tubing directly to the subfloor.
