AIM Acoustic Trough Infills are designed to fit into the troughs of perforated metal profiles used for roof decking. They can be manufactured to suit any trapezoidal profile or perforated standing seam decking in a range of densities.
AIM Acoustic Trough Infills are used to reduce
reverberation in buildings with a high proportion
of hard internal surfaces, especially where noise is
generated within the building, such as is the case with
The Infills are used within perforated metal deck profiles and provide acoustic absorption. In this way a large absorptive surface can be created without the expense, aesthetic problems or inconvenience of suspended acoustic systems.
Mylar sleeved infills are suitable for humid or moist environments such as swimming pools.
Above the line of fire walls below the profiled sheeting, Fire Stop Blocks should be installed to maintain the fire compartment lines.
AIM Acoustic Trough Infills are generally packed into cartons and stretch wrapped onto wooden pallets with a showerproof polythene pallet cover and high quality edge protectors.
LARGE AND SMALL FLUTE
Viewing the profiled decking from the panels end; the larger of the trapezoids is the large flute, the smaller being the small flute. Either large or small flute may be required depending upon which way up the decking is laid
The stone wool material used to manufacture the Acoustic Trough Infill is recognised as a good sound absorbing material. However, the acoustic performance of the trough infill is wholly dependent on the structure of the deck used and the open area within it (size, type and number of perforations in particular).
Where a fire wall is built to the underside of a
perforated metal deck, AIM Fire Stop Blocks should
be installed above and below deck at the line of the
wall to ensure that smoke or fire is prevented from
passing through the perforations in the metal work.
AIM Fire Stop Strip can also be used to remove any imperfections in the head of the wall to the underside of the metal deck.
AIM Acoustic Trough Infills are then used across
the metal deck, to assist with the reduction of noise
reverberation from within the building.
The performance of the AIM Fire Stop Block is dependent on the metal deck remaining stable in a fire situation and should be assessed by a competent person.
Products are supplied in cartons and on wooden pallets with edge protection and a shower proof hood. Products should be stored away from the elements until ready for installation.
This product does not contain moving parts and, if undisturbed in the profiled sheeting, requires no routine inspections or maintenance.
AIM fire barriers are chemically inert, will not sustain vermin and do not encourage the growth of rot, fungi, moulds or bacteria. They are compatible with all normal building materials. They do not degrade under the usual conditions found in buildings and will perform effectively for the life of the building.
