CineSTEEL LITE is designed for lightweight cold-rolled and SFS structures which impose line loading. The system utilises high strain expanded polyeurethane strips to extract maximum isolation performance despite low dynamic mass in the structure.

CineSTEEL LITE‘s wide load range allows use in all sorts of lightweight structures, without the requirement for precise load capacity or isolation performance balancing calculations.
