What is the Best Acoustic Underlay for Your Flooring?

When it comes to soundproofing your floor, the best acoustic base systems are the MuteMat 2 Plus and the MuteMat 3 Plus. These have the additional advantage of the Tecsound layer, which is a vibration damping layer that absorbs sound vibrations from any surface it is applied to. Silentstep Premium is a new generation of acoustic bases for carpets, composed of a flexible barrier loaded in mass and fused over a base layer of high-quality high-density foam. With easy installation and impressive soundproofing performance, this base layer is a true reference in the acoustic market. The acoustic underlying layers are composed of several materials, such as rubber, cork and foam, each designed to provide a different level of soundproofing performance.

Therefore, when selecting an acoustic base for your flooring, it's important to consider factors such as thickness, density, and material composition to ensure the best performance. The science that explains how soundproof floor subfloors work is truly a symphony of engineering and acoustics. For hardwood floors, the MuteMat 2 Plus and MuteMat 3 Plus are great options. They have the added benefit of the Tecsound layer which absorbs sound vibrations from any surface it is applied to. For carpets, Silentstep Premium is an excellent choice as it is composed of a flexible barrier loaded in mass and fused over a base layer of high-quality high-density foam.

It has easy installation and impressive soundproofing performance. When it comes to ceramic or stone tile floors, Sylcer acoustic base is a masterpiece of innovation. It has performance equivalent to Regupol K225, Damtec and Soundsense. For recycled rubber acoustic bases, Sylpro AD is a top-notch option that won't disappoint. Installing acoustic underlays is very easy and you won't need an army of contractors to get the job done. Because of how small and fragile floor tiles can be, you should not place them on soft, padded bases (as is the case with acoustic bases), as this increases the chance of them cracking and breaking.
