Application

Kinetics Floor Lift Mount (Model FLM) consists of a resilient decoupler, cast housing, and leveling bolt. The housing incorporates two opposing side lugs for carrying concrete rebar. The leveling bolt is screwed into a threaded opening in order to lift or “jack-up” the concrete slab into final position i.e., floating the floor. Together with Perimeter Isolation Board (Model PIB), poly sheeting, and perimeter sealant, Model FLM becomes a complete floor isolation system.

Model FLM permits flexible design of a floating floor. For instance, create any airspace between the isolated slab and the structural deck by changing the length of the leveling bolt. Further, the top of the casting may be extended with an adapter to allow for any thickness of floating concrete slab. High load areas are handled either by adding extra mounts or by using higher capacity isolators. Generally, Model FLM mounts are laid out in accordance with submittal drawings provided by Kinetics Engineering. Model FLM offers the designer a simple, adaptable tool for assuring high-quality noise control from the floating concrete floor.
