Sound Control

The Answer to Noise – LATICRETE® 125 Sound & Crack Adhesive

As buildings go up in height we notice more people live on top of each other. Whether it's offices, apartments or two-storey homes, the sound of foot steps, chairs rolling and falling items can be very annoying.  The issue of sound control has never been more important.

LATICRETE has the solution to this problem - 125 Sound & Crack Adhesive provides outstanding sound insulation. This single component adhesive takes the place of costly time consuming membrane or mat systems by allowing for faster, more productive & effective tile or stone installations. 

Key Features:
   Prevents transmission of cracks from the approved substrates to the tile or stone finish when subjected to horizontal in plane movement of cracks up to 3 mm under normal usage.
   Single component, just add water
   Contains 33% post consumer recycled materials
   Superior workability—equipped with lightweight technology
   GREENGUARD certified, LEED compliant
   Reinforced with Kevlar®
   Equipped with antimicrobial protection
   "Extra Heavy" as per ASTM C627 Robinson Floor Test - TCNA

Santa Barbara Seal Mosaic

Click on photo to enlarge
The 2014 award for Public Open Space was presented to Mosaic Artist Betsy Gallery for her mosaic of the Seal of the City of Santa Barbara, which forms part of the award given to The Sea Landing Walkway at the Santa Barbara Harbor.

Alfred Ramirez MFA installed the mosaic.

Erin Carroll ASLA of Arcadia Studio was the project landscape architect.

Betsy fabricated the mosaic of the Seal of the City of Santa Barbara using Dal porcelain tile. As a secret extra she put Laticrete Glow-in-the-Dark grout behind the lighthouse windows. Take a look on a dark, but not stormy, night!

Betsy designs and fabricates mosaics in Santa Barbara for private and public clients.

Created with Mexican Smalti, kiln formed glass fish, and glow in the dark outlines on the compass. SpectraLock grout. 254 Platinum thinset. A couple glasses of wine to wind down and celebrate."
