    Quiet Qurl® 55/025 MC


    Indianapolis, the capital and most popular city in Indiana has become quite an up and coming area. It was recently ranked by Forbes as one of the best downtowns in the country with movie theaters, museums, art galleries, parks, retail shops and entertainment, and has seen steady 8% growth for the last few years. Being as popular as it is, means that an abundance of apartments and homes are being built in the city to accommodate the growing population.

    The second largest litigated problem in multi-family apartment living is sound control. The hardest noise to reduce is impact noise. People often complain about hearing “elephants stomping around” in the unit above them. Incorporating a good quality sound mat can greatly reduce the amount of impact noise passing through the floor system.

    Keene Building Products Quiet Qurl® 55/025 MC was chosen to combat the noise issue. 

    Quiet Qurl 55/025 MC is a sound control mat designed to limit impact noise between floors. This resilient mat absorbs noise when sandwiched in a mass-spring-mass building design.

    Designed for critical applications in which gypsum concrete will be utilized, Quiet Qurl 55/025 MC (Moisture Control fabric) prevents the initial moisture from the gypsum concrete from passing through onto the substrate. 

    Quiet Qurl 55/025 MC has many features and benefits, including: excellent performance at reducing sound in mid and high frequencies, performance in wood frame construction and concrete structures, minimal deflection, and no creep or long-term degradation, the product is lightweight and easy to handle, and it provides a thin profile for tight construction. 

    Quiet Qurl 55/025 MC has a proven track record of quality and performance, so by incorporating Quiet Qurl in the floor ceiling assembly, the residents are sure to be happy with the final product!
