Silent Floor Ultra Soundproofing Acoustic Underlay - 600mm by 1200mm by 11mm thick
What Are The Benefits?
Silent Floor Ultra is a genuine acoustic soundproofing underlay. This product will work to reduce impact noise caused by walking and dragging items across or dropping items on the floor. The Silent Floor Ultra will also reduce airborne noise such as talking, TV and radio noise. It is simple product to install, it is just laid in exactly the same way a regular underlay, the only difference being this product comes in sheets as opposed to rolls. Being only 11mm thick it is no thicker than standard underlays so won't cause issues with door gaps or transitions between different floor types. The Silent Floor Ultra soundproofing underlay is a composite of our extremely popular 5kg soundproofing mat with a layer of high durability 25kg/m3 closed cell cross linked PU foam which gives a feel of luxury under foot. The benefit of using a PU foam as opposed to a recycled crumb foam that is used by so many companies is that the PU foam won't start to crumble and break down over a short period of time.
For Use Under Carpet.
This product can be used with traditional stretched carpets. When installing this product below carpet fit The Silent Floor Ultra so it is foam side up. Make sure there are no gaps between the sheets. If is good practice to glue the sheets down to the sub-floor with our contact adhesive to minimise the chances of underlay 'walking'. The sheets are simply trimmed with a sharp knife when required. You can now proceed to install the carpet in the normal way.
For Use Under Laminate Floors
This product can also be used under glued laminate floors. When installing this product below laminate floors fit the Silent Floor Ultra so that it is rubber side up. Make sure there are no gaps between the sheets. It is good practice to glue the sheets down to the sub-floor with our contact adhesive to minimise the chances of the underlay 'walking'. The sheets are simply trimmed with a sharp knife when required. You can now proceed to install the Laminate Floor as per the manufacturers instructions.
Please note this product is not suitable with click laminate.
To improve sound isolation even further there are a few simple steps you can take before installing the Silent Floor Ultra. To minimise the risk of squeaking floor boards check that there are no loose boards before the Silent Floor installed. If there are any loose screw them down to the joists ensuring there are no pipes or cables behind the board before you do so. If you have gaps between floorboards it is good practice to seal and fill these with our Acoustic Sealant. Before you install the Silent Floor Ultra you can lay one or two layers of the 5kg Soundproofing Mat first. This will help to improve airborne sound isolation even further and will only increase the floor thickness by a few millimetres

How Much Acoustic Treatment Should I Use?
This is a very difficult subject to address. This is because every room is different. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration. As a generalization most rooms will need between 25% and 75% of coverage. This is only for the walls and ceiling. Most people forget when treating a room that the ceiling is just as important when it comes to treating a room as the walls are.
Here is a brief overview of suggested quantities of acoustic treatment:
• Control Rooms for rock, pop, rap, hip-hop, R&B, country, techno, MIDI music, etc. usually benefit from 50% to 75% coverage and mostly absorption. Bass Trapping is also an important part of acoustic treatment for this type of room. • Control Rooms for jazz, art (classical), choral, acoustic, world and other forms of ensemble music usually benefit from 35% to 50% coverage. • Mixing rooms usually call for quite a dead area around the mixing desk itself from 50% to 85%. Around the rest of the room it needs a little absorption between 20% and 40% along with some diffusion. • “Live Rooms” will vary a lot. Some well-designed live rooms can get by with 20% coverage (or even less!). Most fall into the 25% to 50% range. The most successful Live Rooms usually have some degree of variability. This is done so that a studio is not limited to a certain number of styles of music. By making the room adjustable it gives the studio a high ability to accommodate different styles of music. • Isolation Booths usually call for quite a bit of absorption – 75% or more. If the booth is to be used for very tight vocal booth then near 100% absorption may be necessary. • Home theatres and dedicated listening rooms do require quite a large area of absorbing foam on the walls. This is mixed with some diffusion on the ceiling also. • Offices, Restaurants, Classrooms etc. will benefit from 25% and 50% of coverage of the total surface area of the walls and ceiling. We know that sometimes getting the perfect coverage is not always possible. However within reason introduction of any acoustic treatment will make an improvement to the space being considered. The closer we can get the to the ideal coverage then the better the results will be.
Almost never will 100% absorption be needed and neither is it suggested. The room, no matter what it is going to be used for will still need some ‘liveliness’ in it. If 100% absorption is used the room will feel very close, tight and very very un-natural. The room could come to feel quite claustrophobic and extremely difficult to work in. By leaving a percentage of the area of the walls bare the exposed part can be reflective thus helping to stop your recordings or practise sessions from being overbearing. This will have the outcome of much better performances and recording results.
