    Between 2 floors in a flat
    So I've got 12.5mm existing plasterboard ceiling, I should imagine this is normal plasterboard, I'll be putting an mf suspended ceiling in below this with 50mm isover acoustic roll and 2 layers of 12.5mm 'sound block'
    I'm out of fireline and have too much sondblock and sure I've read 60 mins fire break between floors, so the above would be more than enough?

    Thanks

    What does all this mean?

    One flat, or separating two individual flats?

    If you already have 12.5 ceiling, then what is the current status, ie if this is acceptable now then what is the actual problem?
