Jack-Up LDS Rubber Floating Floors

The Mason FSN Jack-Up acoustic floor system can be used as the crucial part of achieving box in box construction for studios or rooms requiring a high level of acoustic separation or simply providing acoustic or impact isolation from one area to another.

The Mason Jack up system eliminates the need for the labour intensive installation of boards. The lifting process ensures an airgap which may be compromised with the panel system if concrete spills through the shutter. The Jack-Up system is highly flexible and assures excellent performance.

Rubber Floating Floor Applications

Air gaps of up to 200mm can be achieved with the jacking process or higher with the use of void former and plinths. Natural frequencies can be specifically achieved in the range of 8-12 Hz by the careful selection of isolator types and spacing.
The elastomer used in the Mason system is now LDS (Low Dynamic Stiffness)rubber which is a recent advanced formulation and combines the advantages of the low dynamic characteristic of rubber with the longevity of bridge bearing neoprene.

We have successfully used this product for recording, radio & TV studios, cinema auditoria, music rooms, gymnasiums and plant rooms. Our clients include the BBC, Royal Opera House, Sadlers Wells, BSkyB, Channel 4, Cinemas Operators and many more.

Jack Up Acoustic Flooring

Jack up concrete flooring is the best way acoustically and also the most cost effective system.

Concrete Floating Floors

Floating floors systems are used for many purposes, predominantly to prevent noise passing through the floor but also to isolate against vibration and impact.

MFS-AJ Adjustable Floor Spring

The MFS-AJ is a jack specially built for attachment to joists and its used as part of a lightweight acoustic floating floor system. The ability to adjust the height gives it an advantage over the standard MFS when placing jacks on floors that aren’t level.

MFS-AF Adjustable Floor Spring

The MFS-AF is an acoustic floating floor jack specifically built for lightweight floors. The ability to adjust the height gives it an advantage over the standard MFS when placing jacks on floors that aren’t level.

MFS Lightweight Floor Spring

It is often necessary to provide an wooden acoustic floating floor rather than the heavier concrete construction with wood topping. Cost or weight restrictions may be the factor.

Lightweight Acoustic Floor Systems

The best performing floating floor systems are typically heavy and thick, using a concrete layer, such as our jack up floating floors. However, sometimes this is undesirable, or not possible due to structural and building limitations, and a lightweight system is required.

Super W Pad

Super W pads feature unique waffle pockets which allow for greater deformation of the material, providing excellent isolation performance. Super W anti-vibration pads can be supplied in multiple configurations to suit most situations.

Jack-Up Spring Floating Floors

The jack up spring floating floor is used for low frequency isolation or where impact isolation is required, such as bowling alleys, gymnasia and health clubs.

Form Work Floating Floor

The formwork system is the traditional method of creating a floating floor. Isolators are placed at regular intervals across the area and the floating floor built on top.
