Being a thermoplastic rubber disc, the SKUDO is designed to be positioned beneath the base of all supports produced by DPS Solving, equipped with a perimetral interlocking mechanism to connect the King and Queen bases. SKUDO was created to offer a functional and effective response to the need to separate the support for elevated flooring from the waterproof and insulating components, particularly suitable for use with synthetic sheaths.
SKUDO protects by contextually abating noise from foot traffic.
The Skudo separator can be combined with all supports in the DPS Solving Flooring Division collection, devised to satisfy the need to separate the laying surface from the PP of which the support is composed. With its containment flange, Skudo attaches perfectly to the base of Queen and King, following any manoeuvring and movements of the supports during installation. It can also be used with Junior and Lord supports, despite their diameter being smaller than that of Skudo.
In the presence of a synthetic impermeable layer, Skudo protects the sheath from the attrition caused by the micromotion of the PP during the exercise.
Skudo retains its characteristics over time and is insensitive to temperature changes. It also has a high resilience—its non-bituminous, plastic nature offers high compressive resistance to Continuous Charge (“CC”), uniformly across the entire surface.
The Skudo’s excellent soundproofing characteristics effectively interrupt any eventual acoustic bridge.
Finally, its shape favours water drainage, preventing stagnation phenomena remaining in contact with the waterproofing.
The range of Tools from the DPS Solving Flooring Division is completed with the Pad separators, being circular components made of high-performance polymer bitumen membrane.
Like Skudo, Pad is applied under the base of the DPS Solving supports to create a layer of separation from the waterproofing membrane and the insulating bundle, whilst preserving the quality of the covering over time.
Pad corrects the acoustic bridge that is created between the flooring and the substrate, breaking down the foot passage noise that would be transmitted to the underlying structure.
Available in two versions with the base having a smooth or dimpled surface, Pad is rot-proof, dimensionally stable and resistant to root growth.
