    Quiet Qurl 55/025 FT

    In the charming historic district of Laurel, Maryland, a new apartment complex completed production in April, 2016. With 484 units provided, your choice of one, two, or three bedroom apartments is available. You can even choose to have an open floor plan with a loft! Inside the apartment includes wood plank-style flooring, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a private balcony, and spacious walk-in closets! It can’t get much better than that! This 8,500 square foot apartment home community is conveniently located for commuters to both Washington DC and Baltimore, Maryland. Or stay in the area and explore the many restaurants and shopping plaza’s Laurel has to offer!

    Don’t feel like leaving the apartment? Then take a dip in the resort-inspired outdoor pool and spa, hangout with friends in the clubhouse, attend a yoga class in the yoga/pilates studio, take your pet to the pet spa and wash, or have a cookout at the BBQ and picnic area! With so many activities to choose from, you’ll always be entertained without having to leave the apartment! With large apartment communities like this one, a main concern is keeping the residents happy. With this in mind, the builders made sure to turn a critical eye to maybe the most important amenity of all; Noise Control! In such a condensed living space with population well into the thousands, noise is sure to be a big concern. This is where Keene Building Products’ Quiet Qurl® 55/025 FT was used to help mitigate this issue.

    Quiet Qurl® 55/025 FT 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. The FT version is equipped with a KEENE’s “Fast Tracking” fabric liner that suspends the concrete mixture while expediting the drying time of gypsum concrete topping. This occurs because the bottom side is thick enough for air movement while the fabric is open enough to allow bottom drying. The final floor can be covered faster allowing for a faster project completion. A quality sound control mat and flooring installed quickly.

    This apartment was built with the tenants best interest at heart. Not only was the builders committed to making the community pleasing to the eye, they were able to make it pleasing to the ear as well!
