Homasote 440 SoundBarrier combines wall and floor sound control performance with 98 percent recycled materials and is ideal for use in multi-housing communities.The company’s products have earned the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification, and Homasote 440 SoundBarrier has also received certification from the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS).The floor/ceiling system, which is moisture- and mold-resistant, achieved an FIIC (Field Impact Insulation Class)-46 rating, exceeding the most recent International Building Code requirements.The product’s performance was verified in March 2009 when Metropolitan Acoustics conducted an FIIC test on a representative floor/ceiling assembly separating vertically adjacent master bathrooms of the Voorhees Town Center condominium units in Southern N.J. The floor system consisted of six-inch-thick insulation, one layer of gypsum board, 24-inch deep wood joists, three-quarter-inch tongue and groove plywood subfloor, a half-inch of Homasote 440 SoundBarrier, MSC underlayment and designer ceramic tile on the surface. www.homasote.com
