Effective sound control is particularly relevant whenever there are multiple units in a building. Installing a tiled floor that meets minimum acceptable standards for sound control is a complex undertaking. There are many approaches and products available on the market and that may lead to confusion and undesirable results. This seminar serves to highlight the key factors that should be considered when installing a tiled floor where sound control is a consideration.
