AdvanTech® flooring features advanced moisture-resistant resin technology and industry-leading strength and stiffness for flat and quiet floors; plus it is a trusted subfloor for high-end hardwood and tile installations.
“In residential projects in New York City, there’s a demand for limiting sound transmission, so we need a subfloor assembly which is sound attenuated,” said Janos Spitzer, the owner and founder of Janos P. Spitzer Flooring Company Inc. “This is achieved by having the subfloor assembly independently floating over the concrete slab without any mechanical connection.
“The assembly consists of two layers of 4' x 8' panels and an acoustical barrier,” Spitzer continued. “The system’s performance depends on its dimensional stability and, in this respect, AdvanTech panels outperform plywood that was traditionally used in the past. Unlike plywood, AdvanTech panels do not need the weight of the finish flooring to stabilize the assembly, since it is heavier than plywood, stays flat and is moisture resistant.”
