Contact sounds are created by sound vibrations transmitted through structures of a building to other spaces. For example footsteps, objects falling to the ground, or moving chairs.
To reduce the effect of contact sounds, contractors and architects work with a floating screed which is placed on top of an acoustic underlay with side strips. This way, the screed is never in contact with the underlying filling layer and the vibrations are absorbed by the acoustic underlay and side strips.
Expansion joints, better known as dilatation profiles, are used at doorways and stairs and in large screeds to prevent the screed from breaking. The elastic polyethene (PE) foam allows the screed to expand, preventing damage to the screed layer. Even at doorways and stairs, expansion joints, better known as dilatation profiles, are used.
Abriso Jiffy has also designed the Acoustic Foam® Corners. With these interior or exterior PE corners, you can easily avoid gabs and minimalise the risk of your screed touching the underlying filling layer or concrete layer.

The solution is just around the corner! So don’t waste time.
To save money and to secure a perfect installation, Abriso Jiffy designed the Acoustic Foam Corners. Using the Acoustic Foam corner 3x2-25 (Green) or the Acoustic Foam corner 3x2-35 (Grey), you avoid gabs and minimalises the risk your screed can touch the underlying filling layer or concrete layer.
Both corner profiles are available in both interior and exterior corners.
ExpaFlex is a T-shaped PE profile and acts as an expansion joint.
ExpaFlex avoids large screed surfaces from cracking or fracturing.
Since the ExpaFlex is made of elastic polyethylene foam (PE),
this profile is easy to cut into the right size. The self-adhesive
strip on the base ensures smooth and stable installation.
ExpaFlex is mainly used to interrupt large screed surfaces or
The ExpaStand is an 8 mm polyethylene foam (PE) expansion joint held by a strong PP hollow chamber foot. The solid base allows the screed surface to be separated in a straight line.
The low solid base enables easy cutting of the joint profile after curing the screed layer.
Abiso Jiffy resolutely opts for ease of use with the unique ExpaStand.
Acoustic Foam® Corner, ExplaFlex and ExpaStand are additional products of our range of contact sound insulation products.
They make the installation of our products such as the Acoustic Abrifiber, Acoustic Foam® and Acoustic Reflex®, much easier.
