What Are Floating Floors?

Floating Floors refers to the installation method, it is often used in reference with laminate flooring in a domestic context. By word it refers to floor but it is used to reduce noise or vibration. A floating floor does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor.

A domestic floating floor might be constructed over a subfloor or even over an existing floor. It can consist of a glass fibre, felt or cork layer for sound insulation with neoprene pads holding up a laminate floor. Floating floors that are used in sound studios can be either just larger versions of the domestic variety, or much larger constructions with slabs of concrete to keep the resonance frequency down. Though floating floors add appeal to homes, it is advisable not to use them for areas that may get wet, i.e. bathrooms and near exterior doors.
