PROFLEX™ PIB (Perimeter Isolation Barrier) is a low density polyethylene foam product. The product serves as a means to assist the installer in maintaining a 1/4” perimeter isolation space along the perimeter of a flooring installation where a change of plane occurs. (Floor to Wall).
PROFLEX™ PIB is a companion product for use with PROFLEX™ elastomeric membranes and underlayments. PROFLEX™ PIB is used to maximize sound isolation and create a soft joint around the perimeter of wear layer installation. PROFLEX™ PIB is placed along the wall surface where the flooring installation meets. The PIB may be affixed to the wall using staples or by using a double sided stick tape. Continue with your installation with the PIB in place so a 1/4” perimeter isolation space is maintained along the perimeter. Once your installation is complete, the PIB may be either trimmed away at a point flush with the flooring surface. This method is effective if installing baseboards or cove base. If the perimeter space is left exposed, the PIB may be removed and the space filled with an acoustical sealant, or matching caulk product.
*DO NOT FILL IN THE PERIMETER SPACE WITH ANY TYPE OF GROUT OR CEMENTITIOUS PRODUCT.
- Aids in the reduction of perimeter flanking noise in sound related applications.
