Tile and stone have excellent heat conduction qualities, but not as exceptional for sound abatement. Combining the two can be confusing, and if not properly addressed. could cause failure in the tile or stone floor. However, with proper details and specifications, the combination of in floor heat and sound control could offer a long term, maintenance free flooring assembly that adds great value to a project.

2. Distinguish between and IIC rating and a delta IIC contribution.
3. Identify the components of a floor/ceiling assembly required for effective sound control.
4. List the characteristics of different sound control materials suitable for use underneath a tiled floor covering.
