What is Enkasonic?

  • Lightweight
  • open structure
  • three-dimensional matrix
  • extruded nylon construction
  • thin cross section
Enkasonic's open structure
creates a void in the floor's construction that breaks sound
transmission between the ceiling-floor
assembly.

People don't mind living close together, they just don't want to hear one another talk or walk across the floor, their music or any of their appliances. In the past, other methods have been used to try to inhibit noise transfer, but Enkasonic is the best solution for improving both the airborne sound quality and most importantly, that elusive impact sound.


Using the Enkasonic sound control system cuts airborne and impact sound transmission over 20 decibels in some assemblies. NEW! 3/4 inch Topping Application
