The econocheck Shallow Batten system is designed to reduce sound transmission through a level concrete structural sub-floor.
Econocheck Shallow Batten consists of 10mm or 15mm ACF bonded to a FSC - certificated 35mm or 40mm deep softwood batten.
When installed as part of a complete sound reduction system, it enables a timber floor to meet the sound transmission regulations of Approved Document E 2003 and subsequent amendments in 2004, 2010 and 2013.
Should the requirement be for a batten height other than that specified on this page please contact us for further technical advice and suitability. Alternatively you could consider the Deep Batten 75RD (see link left).
To be used over concrete floors for conversions, refurbishments or new build (to hide services or accommodate underfloor heating beneath the floor) with a new ceiling as illustrated.
