Hi Fellow Flat Chatters

In doing some research on Hardwood flooring issues, I sought to find CCCT decisions on unacceptable noise created through such floors.

The Dept of Fair Trading directed me to a sample of selected CCCT cases provided on AUSTLII, and so had to go through all those that related to a Strata issue.

Does anyone know of a way of getting to a more comprehensive list of cases that has the Strata issue considered within a case identified up front - so that I could zero in on those covering Hardwood or Flooring issues.

 

Thanks

Go HERE, select a year from the list, then go to the drop-down search menu (defaulted to Boolean) and select "all words", then type 'floor strata' and click on 'search'.

That will give you a list of all the cases that involve strata schemes and flooring (but cuts out the alarming number of claims made by customers against flooring companies). 

When you're done, go back and select the previous year until you have found enough cases for your purposes.

Hope this helps

You can search the AUSTRLII database using key words

Strata Hardwood floors noise

To list just those that you are intrested in. I generally use the option all of these words for my search.

You have to use strata because the database contains other cases besides strata issues.

OK, but that would exclude tiled floors. See below for my similar but broader search suggestions

Hi 

We recently found a product available in US ( Silent Blue ) which provided a 72 IIC rating and exceeded all AUST Standards re sound insulation.

Hope this helps

Cheers Tony
