TVS RESi Cradle

TVS RESi Cradle system is designed to reduce sound transmission through uneven concrete floors.

TVS RESi Cradle consists of a 5mm layer of Isopoli HD foam bonded to an injection moulded plastic cradle. The system includes levelling packers in various thicknesses as well as elevating blocks where extra height is required TVS RESi Cradle is New Build Robust Detail compliant for masonry floor construction and were the structural sub floor has a camber or is irregular and needs levelling.

When installed as part of a complete party floor construction this system enables a concrete floor to meet the sound transmission standards of Approved Document E 2003 and subsequent amendments in 2004 and 2010.


To be used over uneven, cambered, level or unlevel concrete floors for conversions, refurbishments or new build.

Performance (on the two New Build Robust Detail constructions illustrated)

Treated floor meets with the New Build Robust Detail descriptive FFT2, typically within Robust Details E-FC-1, E-FS-1, E-FC-2 and E-FC-7. Two typical alternative constructions are shown above.
