Acoustilay Acoustic Flooring Underlay
Acoustilay is a unique acoustic flooring underlay system combining both mass and resilience to help reduce both airborne noise (TV, music and speech), and impact noise such as footsteps. It can be used to introduce effective soundproofing in many domestic, residential and commercial environments and manufactured in three different grades to ensure the right product is available for every project:
• Acoustilay 15 (15mm thick and 15kg per sqm): The perfect all-round soundproofing flooring system. Enough mass and resilience to reduce airborne and impact noise, and suitable for use beneath a wide range of floor finishes. Can be used to meet Part E of the Building regulations or just for high-level domestic comfort.
• Acoustilay 8 (12mm thick and 8kg per sqm): The ideal product for use beneath timber and laminate floor finishes where impact noise is a major concern, but still with enough mass to eliminate some airborne noise too. Particularly useful where carpets are being replaced with timber floor finishes in flats and apartments and increased sound insulation is required. Can also be used to meet Part E of the Building regulations or just for high-level domestic comfort.
• Acoustilay 3 (10mm thick and 3kg per sqm): Perfect for use on concrete floors beneath carpets, where impact noise is the only concern. The highest performing impact noise product for concrete floors on the market.
Acoustilay can be used above most lath and plaster and resiliently fixed, double plasterboard ceilings to bring the overall floor/ceiling construction up to the standards of Building Regulations Approved Document E (2003).
The latest addition to the Acoustilay family is Acoustilay Tilemat, which is specifically designed for installation under ceramic and stone floor tiles. Easy to install and manufactured using recycled materials, Acoustilay Tilemat can be used in new build projects, refurbishments and conversions. It is manufactured from recycled rubber and EPDM and has been developed to maintain excellent acoustic properties throughout the life of the product to give long-lasting impact sound insulation.
