On board of each ship, from cruise ship to offshore ship, there are various predominant sources of sound and vibration. In order to guarantee the safety of the crew and passengers, noise controlling floor systems in ships must suppress this noise and the vibrations.
Floating floor system
The A-60 floating floor systems mainly reduce air borne noise and impact noise aboard of a ship. An A-60 floor system is applied to indoor decks before the floor finish is applied, such as carpet, synthetic PU floors or PVC. The subfloor is installed so that the floor is separate from the steel deck and separate from the walls. The floating application of the floor ensures ultimate noise reduction and offers a high level of comfort for the crew on board. An A-60 floating floor system can be combined with visco-elastic floor systems to also reduce the structure born noise which originates from vibrations from the steel construction of a ship.
