Looking for a way to reduce noisy footsteps in your home or office? If so, acoustic underlay could be a worthwhile investment. This specialist type of underlayment is suitable for both domestic and commercial use. Paired with carpet, hardwood or laminate flooring, it will successfully reduce impact and airborne noises – creating a quieter, more peaceful environment.
Why should I buy acoustic underlay?
Just as the name suggests, the main advantage of acoustic underlay is that it demonstrates excellent acoustic properties. Typically made from PU foam or wool felt, it absorbs sound vibrations – minimising unwanted echoes and impact noises within the room and reducing their transfer throughout the building.
Aside from its acoustic properties, soundproof underlay also has a number of other benefits. For example, it often improves the underfoot comfort of the flooring. Thanks to its thick construction, it adds an additional layer of insulation and offers superior thermal protection. It’s also incredibly easy to install and can be used in a diverse range of rooms – in both the home and workplace.
Which is the best acoustic underlay?
The effectiveness of acoustic underlay is measured in decibels (dB). The higher the dB rating, the better its acoustic properties – and, ideally, you want something around the 48dB+ mark.
Here at Carpet Underlay Shop, we currently have a selection of different soundproof underlays which meet this criteria.
One of the best products in this range is the Plushwalk 12mm Carpet Underlay. This is a 5* memory foam acoustic underlay, with an impact sound reduction of approximately 49dB and a 3.5 tog rating. Not only does it significantly reduce impact and airborne noises, but it also creates a soft ‘bounce back’ effect – enhancing underfoot comfort – and demonstrates outstanding thermal properties.
We also recommend the Super Velvet Wool & Crumb Underlay constructed from duo-combo of eco-friendly wool fibres and rubber crumb base, it’s naturally good at absorbing sound – with an impact sound reduction rating of 48dB – whilst also being kind to the environment. What’s more, it exhibits excellent heat insulation properties (3.6 tog rating) and creates a luxurious softness and cushioning underfoot.
