QuietFloor Plus acoustic underlay has again been used by a homeowner to upgrade the soundproofing of a floor by installing a floating floor in his flat in London. Normal floating floor insulation is designed for impact noise reduction only and by decoupling the floor with resilient insulation such as our R10 recycled rubber. However, when additional airborne noise reduction is required then more mass has is required because the greater the mass in a construction, the more efficient the soundproofing becomes. This is why QuietFloor Plus is often used because it is heavy with a mass in excess of 15kg/2. This makes it one of the heaviest acoustic underlays available and because it is made up with a resilient recycled foam layer sandwiched in the middle, will also help to absorb impact noise from footsteps and moving chairs. QuietFloor Plus can also be used as an acoustic underlay beneath carpets instead of normal underlay when more reduction of noise through a floor is required on a carpeted floor.
Our 4.2mm Acoustic Laminate Underlay has again been the preferred choice for one of our customers in London combined with our 2mm SBM5 soundproofing mat. When used as the acoustic underlay beneath laminate floors it will help reduce the inevitable impact noise resulting from walking on a hard surface and also airborne noise due to the additional reverberation that is caused when noise bounces off all the hard surfaces within the room where the laminate flooring is installed. This acoustic underlay system is easy to install and can be conducted by any person that is used to DIY. First the Soundproofing Mat is laid over the floor to seal up the joints in the original floorboards and can be tacked down with staples or felt nails. Then the Acoustic Laminate Underlay is installed on top without fixing and finally, the laminate flooring installed on top according to the suppliers instructions.
