Lightweight frame structures become increasingly popular in housing. They are used in single-, as well as multifamily, residential buildings. Such a tendency is in the line with sustainable development and the need for energy conservation. Lightweight frame partitions provide a certain comfort of life and remain environmentally friendly. However, they are tricky in terms of acoustics. Different factors and technical details influence their sound insulation. The paper presents the analysis of the acoustical effects resulting from different layers used on lightweight frame floors. Airborne, as well as impact sound insulation, have been considered, based on the results of laboratory measurements according to ISO 10140 standard.
