Granville, NY – February 1, 2011 – (Kazor.com) – Squeaky floors that occur when joists and subflooring rub together does not have to be a fact of life. Stop this unwanted noise with new quick-install Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape from Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics (SGPPL). The easy-to-use, cost-effective joist tape can be installed between the floor joist and subflooring, creating an airtight seal, stopping friction and eliminating noise by damping loud foot traffic.
“Squeaky floors and noise from overhead footsteps are two of the biggest complaints from residential single and multi-family apartment and homeowners, hotel guests and people working in a wide variety of commercial spaces,” says Mark Darby, Global Sales and Marketing Manager, Acoustics for Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics. “Our new joist tape is a simple, cost-effective fix to eliminate a very common noise annoyance.”
Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape is rolled onto floor joists, adhesive side down, using company’s patented tape roller and subflooring is installed on top. Its quick installation and long-term benefits to homeowners have made the joist tape a favourite among residential architects and home builders.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape also has very low thermal conductivity and delivers the added benefit of improving energy efficiency.
The joist tape comes in three standard width sizes, 1 7/16”, 2 1/4″ and 3” based on the most common joist sizes in new construction projects. It is available direct through the company’s Web site as well as through the company’s valued online distribution partners.
