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.
