TVS RESi - FF System

TVS RESi - FF System is designed to create a floating floor or slab to dramatically reduce impact and airborne sound transmission within building structures. The system can be used to support lightweight floors and screeds through to heavy raft foundations, with typical air gaps between floors ranging from 50mm to 150mm.

TVS RESi - FF System will be designed by TVS engineers to meet key project specifications for natural frequency, load/deflection, air gap and ultimately acoustic performance.

TVS Steelwork Isolation

To ensure that the acoustic performance of the cinema screen is not compromised, it is essential to ensure that the raked seating is totally independent of the main structure, the floor slab and any adjacent screens.

TVS Steelwork Isolation Pads, manufactured from the high performance Sylomer and Sylodyn polyurethane materials, provide high levels of isolation either underneath column base-plates or at steel to steel connections. Each bespoke pad is sized and produced to match these connection details, whilst the grade of Sylomer or Sylodyn will be selected in accordance with the loading information provided for each connection. This ensures that the acoustic consultants natural frequency requirements can be met at each location under all load cases.

TVS Resilient Washers ensure that the TVS Steel-work Isolation Pads are not ‘short-circuited’ by the bolts that connect the steel-work or anchor in to the slab.

TVS Resilient Washers

Application

Elastic washers EW are used to decouple structure-borne noise bridges that arise from screw connections. The polyurethane material Sylodyn® effectively isolates vibrations and retains its material properties over its entire service life. As well as decoupling vibrations, the washers are also electrically non-conductive and resistant to common oils and greases.

Design

As well as the simple design, the washers are also available with a centering aid (groove), to facilitate easier installation and to guarantee the exact positioning of the screw with the hole. The dimensions are adapted to screw sizes M8, M10, M12 and M16 and are available in different bearing thicknesses for different efficiencies of insulation.

Features & Benefits

  • Effective vibration isolation and vibration decoupling
  • Material properties remain constant over the long term
  • No brittleness (free from softeners)
  • Range for different screw sizes
  • Variants with centring aid
  • Flammability in accordance with DIN EN 13501-1
  • Surface protection
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Resistant to oils and greases
  • Thermally insulating

TVS Partition Isolation Strips

TVS Partition Isolation Strips are designed to sit beneath all types of studwork and steel track partitions where flanking noise isolation is required. Available in various grades and thicknesses to ensure that the highest acoustic performance is always achieved.

Although from an acoustic perspective, constructing the walls off the floating slab would provide the best box-in-box solution, the additional complications that this would cause in terms of the design of the floated slab, the construction programme and the overall build-ability mean that the most common method of isolating the walls in a cinema is to build these off a resilient strip on the structural slab.

TVS Isolation Strips provide a low natural frequency solution that is easy to integrate in to the wall construction. Any fixings through this material should incorporate a resilient washer to prevent any short-circuiting of the isolation strip.

Features & Benefits

  • Offers long term performance without collapse or ‘bottoming out’ under high point loads
  • Common thicknesses 17-25mm, although other thicknesses are available depending upon performance required
  • Grades capable of withstanding loads up to and including 1.5N/mm2, with low frequency performance achieved
  • Resistance to ageing and deformation
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Minimises construction heights
  • High quality and exact material thickness guaranteed

TVS Resilient Wall Ties

Where it is required to structurally tie an isolated wall in to an un-isolated structure, there is a potential bridge in the box-in-box design.

TVS Resilient Wall Ties overcome this problem by integrating a high performance Sylomer element in to the wall tie.

Available in a whole host of designs, depending upon the construction of the isolated and unisolated structures that are being resiliently tied (stud work, masonry etc), these ties offer natural frequencies down to 8Hz providing optimal acoustic results.

They have a fail safe rugged metal structure and are recommended for applications where fire or impact resistance is necessary.

TVS Acoustic Mastic

TVS can offer the supply and installation of the specialist acoustic mastic required for your cinema project for the gap between the acoustic floating floor and the perimeter walls.



Typically formed from multiple layers of high density plasterboard, cinema ceilings need to be resiliently suspended to ensure that there are no solid connections between the auditoria and the main building structure.

Incorporating a high performance sylomer element in to the design, TVS SH Acoustic Hangers can be simply integrated in to a drop-rod or even a metal strap system to provide low natural frequency isolation.
