Profloor Dynamic Batten are RD-compliant FFT1, FFT3 & FFT80 (Scotland) and provide excellent levels of impact and airborne sound insulation. The unique dual foam not only provides high performance characteristics, but also enables minor irregularities in the surface of the sub-floor to be addressed.
