Laminate floors are one of the biggest causes of domestic noise problems.

Whilst they provide an easy to clean and child friendly flooring solution they are not neighbour friendly. When you walk on these surfaces a large amount of impact as well as airborne noise is created (due to the hard surface) this can often be a nuisance to the people living below.

Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd has recently added an Acoustic Laminate Underlay to their extensive soundproofing range. The Acoustic Laminate Underlay is designed specifically to reduce the impact noise (walking/footfall) creating when walking on a laminate, engineered wooden floor.

The Acoustic Laminate Underlay is made up of a 4.2mm layer of high density resilient rubber sponge with a foil faced moisture barrier laminated to one side. It can be easily cut with a knife or scissors and if used in conjunction with the soundproofing mats from Sound Service, it will provide both impact AND airborne noise reduction through the floor with minimal height rise.

As well as offering superior sound performance the underlay also incorporates a vapour barrier, eliminating the need for extra moisture protection such as polythene sheeting and is also suitable for use with under floor heating.

Sound tests have shown that the Acoustic Laminate Underlay has a weighted Impact Sound Improvement Index of (Delta Lw) 27dB!! As a percentage it would perform approximately 40 % better than a standard “off the shelf” laminate underlay from a DIY chain.
