Massachusetts Institute of Technology W1 Building Using Jumpax Acoustical Underlayment

Share Article

Jumpax acoustical underlayment is a sound reducing, free floating, dry leveling, fast track floor preparation system used in the W1 Building at The Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Sound Seal, a leading manufacturer of commercial and architectural acoustic noise control products announced today that The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) W1 building renovation project is using Jumpax as the preferred underlayment for student and staff housing within the 100+year-old W1 building on the M.I.T. Campus in Cambridge MA.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a faculty of over 1000 is a residential facility with enrollments in undergraduate, graduate and professional services. M.I.T ‘s current and previous faculty have won numerous Noble Prizes in Chemistry, Biology and the Humanities.

The W1 building is undergoing a complete renovation with removal of the entire old interior. Due to the age of the building, the condition of the structural floor/ceiling assembly, and the amount of floor preparation involved Jumpax was the perfect choice for a structure-borne acoustical underlayment system.

Jumpax acoustical underlayment is a sound reducing, free floating, dry leveling, fast track floor preparation system.

Eric Bickford of Contract Flooring, the installer for the M.I.T. project, says "Jumpax, a great product, easy to level, and with the amount of floor preparation required I didn’t know what else would perform as well."
