Expan Quiet Floors
Expan Quiet Floors provide a modular and cost effective flooring system for open plan multi-storey buildings.
The floor systems have been developed to provide a robust structural solution, minimise inter-floor air-borne noise transmission and a dynamic vibration characteristic that is comfortable to occupants.
Current Expan Quiet Floors are Timber-Concrete-Composite (TCC) designs and future options will include all timber options
Timber-Concrete-Compostie floor systems are relatively new to Australia and New Zealand and satisfactory performance requires a rigorous design procedure address both ultimate and serviceability limit stages. TCC structures have a degree of complexity since they combine two materials that have very different mechanical properties and respond in different ways to the environment. A complete Expan Design Guidelines for TCC Quiet Floors is in production now for release shortly to address many of the questions around using this product.
It is unquestionable, however, that Expan Quiet Floors offer a quick, easy and feasible solution for flooring - especially in open plan multi-storey buildings.
