a dance floor that rests on a system of high-density foam, to absorb the shock of jumping
a floor built with all its parts attached to each other but with none of these component parts fixed to the supporting floor
a floor that is glued together or clicked together to provide a single unit of flooring that is laid onto an underlay so that it not fixed to the ground but floats on top of the underlay
a floor which is supported by a structural slab but is completely isolated from the structural slab by resilient support members, so it is nowhere in rigid contact with the structure slab
Installation method where the flooring panels are connected together and not attached to the subfloor.
A floor that does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor and "floats" on a cushion or underlayment.
A floor that is not attached to the sub floor, but instead sits unattached on top of the sub floor. This allows for expansion and contraction due to temperature and humidity changes.
Sound isolation of floors
An installation method whereby the laminate flooring panels are connected together but are not fastened to the subfloor.
A floor that does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor and can be installed over most existing floors, including concrete, ceramic, vinyl, wood and even some indoor/outdoor carpet.
a floor that is not attached directly to the sub floor. The floor lays over the sub floor, or existing flooring material. Floating floors can generally be installed over many types of existing floors, including vinyl, concrete, wood, ceramic, and even some indoor/outdoor carpeting.
Floor designed to provide sound insulation qualities. It is separated from the building's structure by the use of special resilient materials, often fabricated from fiberglass or flexible mounting devices, including springs. Floating floor construction is used when there is a need to separate the rest of the building from noise, vibration or a combination of these elements often produced by machinery.
