Designed and Engineered by experts, Hush Panel 28 is our unique, adaptable and efficient sound reducing floor panel and one of our bestselling acoustic flooring products. Used as a structural or overlay floor board, Hush Panel 28 is made in our Liverpool Warehouse and gives proven excellent results, achieved in both Conversion, Refurbishment and New Build projects.

So how is it made?

HP28COHush Panel 28 consists of raw materials such as 18mm P5 moisture resistant tongued and grooved chipboard and our 10mm Hush Felt resilient layer. These are then bonded together to give the overall finished product.

Historically, raw materials were installed individually within a floor solution, however as technology improved, manufacturers were able to supply these raw materials bonded together, making for a quicker and easier installation.

Over time building regulations have become stricter, meaning clients preferred to buy the tested products directly from the manufacturer, rather than buying the components separately.

What makes Hush Panel 28 Unique to other floor deck on the market?

IMG_2740.jpegThe simple answer is our Unique Hush Felt.

All Manufacturers make a version of a 28mm/26mm acoustic floor deck as the industry standard acoustic flooring. However other manufacturers use foam or rubber based resilient layers that disintegrate over time and therefore will stop acoustically performing. Our Hush Felt has been designed and engineered to outlast the length of the building. This has been proven by carrying out acoustic tests many years down the line after it was originally fitted.

A peel clean version is also now available for spotless handovers.
