u-silence
Acoustical Underlayment For Mill Building and Loft Conversion

Uni-Silence System® is sound reducing prefabricated sub floor system that has been engineered for loft conversion and mill building renovation.  The Uni-Silence System is 3″ thick and weighs 7.5 lbs per sf and is designed to reduce both airborne and structure borne noise.  The Uni-Silence System is perfect for buildings where the floor above is used for the ceiling below. Learn More

Note:
With any mill building or loft conversion the STC & IIC without a ceiling below will be very low.  In many instances gypsum topping is recommended to increase overall STC  rating.  We always recommend that you work with an acoustical consultant to field test for IIC & STC measurements both before and after using Uni-Silence System

Difference Between Airborne & Structure Borne Noise

Airborne Noise is noise that is caused and travels through the atmosphere, this noise includes: speech, television, radio, etc.  Airborne noise is typically controlled by weight and mass; the heavier the floor/ceiling or interior walls are the better its ability to stop or insulate airborne noise.  Airborne noise is tested using the ASTM E413-04 test.  It is a single-number rating system that is used to compare the sound insulation of interior walls or floors tested in laboratory conditions (STC) or the actual sound isolation between different floor/rooms in the field (FSTC).  If the underlayment you are using is lightweight it typically offers very little STC performance.  Underlayments that have this symbol are heavier underlays, having a minimum weight of 1 lb per sf and will help increase the overall STC rating of the structure.

Structure Borne Noise is noise that is cause by an impact and travels through the structure, this noise includes: walking or foot fall noise, dragging chairs, objects dropping, etc.  Structure borne noise is tested using the ASTM E492-04 test for laboratory measurements (IIC) and the ASTM E1007-04e1 test for field measurements (FIIC) using a tapping machine. Tests evaluate the impact sound-insulating performance of a floor-ceiling assembly and are also a single-number rating system.  Underlayments are used to isolate a hard surface floor form the sub floor.  Underlayments that have this symbol have been engineered to reduce impact noise specifically for that floor covering.
