Raupanel

The numbers sound great. Its expensive but few good products come cheep. My vendor has been talking it up for a while. The only thing that concerns me is noise. I am worried about the aluminum expanding a lot and making noise. Also the floor contact is only the edges of the aluminum plates and the little aluminum runner. This seems like it might flex and also make noise. Just looking for some feed back. Thanks

    it's a very high performance product

    but we have seen noise in some installations. My gut suspicion is that it was installed paralell with the floor joists and the give in the subfloor caused it to rub. but I can't prove it.



    there are many with noiseless installations out there so I'm not saying the product is bad. Just that it requires more thought in the install, apparently.

    We just finished a 200 square foot project where I wanted to use QuikTrak, but my supplier was out of some of the panels.  They had plenty of Raupanel and we used it instead and were pleased with the way it turned out - a quiet floor with no flex.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.
