ACS uses only the products which have been tested and proven to perform when it comes to reducing sound transmission between floors. 

ACS installs several levels of sound control used in multifamily construction. Most of the sound control mats use an entangled mesh system to provide an adequate vibration break to help eliminate some of the sound being transmitted between floors.

The topping poured provides mass which will help eliminate the airborne sound being transmitted between floors. Each mat has a designated depth of topping and each system ACS installs is part of a UL Fire Rated assembly.
