About BRD HUSH FLOAT™ Isolated Structures:

BRD HUSH FLOAT™ isolated floor systems consist of load bearing molded fiberglass, neoprene or springs for exceptional structure-borne isolation with layers of acoustical fiberglass supporting a poured concrete (type CFF) or staggered double layer of plywood (type WFF) mass layer to further dampen structure-borne and airborne noise and vibration.  Perimeter isolation material, special floor drains, temporary weather proofing and other accessory items are all part of the floating floor system.  Floating partitions and ceilings can also be incorporated to avoid any flanking around a floating floor.  Partition restraint brackets, sway braces, ceiling isolation hangers and other components are available to ensure complete structural isolationf or critical applications.  Please contact your BRD sales engineer regarding specific design to meet any STC or IIC project requirement.
