Apartment living calls for high performance flooring systems that are durable, water resistant, sound mitigating and cost effective. Enter the Woodland Lifestyle Acoustic System which teams stylish wood laminates with a highly absorbent underlay to conquer the demands of high-density housing.
Woodland lifestyle’s multi-level acoustic flooring system involves choosing from Woodland Lifestyle’s European made Oasis or Euro deluxe laminate collections and pairing this with their market leading floorMuffler US underlay. Choosing this system gives you acoustic potential of up to IIC 74dB STC 73dB depending on the substrate, achieving above and beyond NZ building Code G6 relating to Airborne and Impact Sound requirements of IIC 55dB and STC 55dB. Multi-level noise complaints are one of the most common issues facing landlords; this system future proofs apartment acoustics for years to come.
Keeping flooring build-ups to a minimum is an important factor when designing multi-level apartments, Woodland Lifestyle’s acoustic system keeps the build-up to a minimum with the full system thickness of 10mm with no adhesives or subfloor attachments required during installation.
New E3/AS1 NZ building code requirements for flooring to be impervious to moisture around all sanitary fixtures are met when the flooring system is laid with the HydroKit installation method involving foam rods and transparent silicone at the perimeter of the wet areas. The HydroShield paste applied to expansion joins on the perimeter makes the finished floor impervious to water spills and splashes. Additional HydroShield is applied when the finished skirting boards are installed.
Woodland Lifestyle’s Euro and Oasis collections offer European quality, UNICLIC highly engineered jointing systems, waterproof surface finishes and matching accessories such as three-in-one smart profiles and stair nosings. The Oasis collection has a special 3D Wood Effect which allows you to see and feel the grain, just like a solid timber floor. A pressed bevel on four sides of every plank enhances the uniqueness of every plank, which shows little repetition within 10 square metres.
FloorMuffler US underlay is a closed cell cross-linked polypropylene foam underlay with superior moisture protection adding to the moisture barrier of the whole flooring system. As a premium 2mm lightweight underlay, it can also mitigate minor floor imperfections and provide comfort underfoot. It is available with a self-sealing lip and tape system adding to the speed of installation.
