Advantage 3 is a rubber/cork acoustic underlay suitable for: timber, laminate and vinyl floors, as well as dual bond application of carpet tiles and carpet.
The National Construction Code (formerly known as BCA) publishes standards relating to sound insulation for multi-level dwellings to reflect community expectations around noise management.
The NCC standard requires that all flooring assemblies be tested to determine their acoustic performance. These standards reference both impact sound and airborne sound. The standard, as determined by the NCC, for impact sound requirement is Ln,w ≤ 62dB. The airborne sound requirement is Rw+Ctr ≥ 50dB.
Designed to reduce impact sound insulation, Advantage 3 exceeds the National Construction Code’s (NCC) minimum requirements for acoustic performance, whilst offering thermal insulation.
Dunlop Advantage 3 is recommended for use with solid and engineered timber, laminate, luxury vinyl planks, carpet tiles and carpet.
