Product Summary

Soundstop Cork acoustic mat is a 2mm gauge underlay for use under laminate and floating wood floors. it is designed from the highest content of natural raw materials being 100% cork granules bound by polyurethane. The product has an integrated vapour barrier to restrict transmission when the joints are taped.

Performance is excellent, providing impact sound reduction of 26dB under engineered wood floor, and 19dB under laminate floors.

It is also ideal for underfloor heating with Tog rating of 0.4.

When used in conjunction with our Tecsound 50 or 70 acoustic membrane the combination can provide a very meaningful improvement in airborne and impact sound for newly laid laminate and engineered floors. The Tecsound 70 is a 3.5mm mat as opposed to the 2.6mm Tecsound 50. The extra mass of the Tecsound 70 should add around 4 dB more acoustic protection in comparison to the Tecsound 50. Customers wishing for further airborne soundproofing can also add acoustic mineral wool beneath the floors boards. Remember that with all underlay rubber mats the improvement quoted is only an impact sound improvement and that they will have very little airborne sound reduction qualities.

Product Application

If you are also looking to improve the airborne (TV and talking ) soundproofing between rooms, (say between two flats) then adding a layer of Tecsound 50or Tecsound 70 is an excellent choice.

NOTE: where noise from below is your problem you should be concentrating on getting the maximum airborne uplift you can. Acoustic mats vastly improve impact sound reduction (benefitting downstairs neighbours) they are not as good at reducing the sound coming up, hence our recommendation for Tecsound and acoustic mineral wool).

Instructions for use

This is a very simple product to fit. Simply cut to size of the room, where possible avoiding gaps and spaces. The new laminate/engineered floor is simply laid over the floor and fitted as normal. If laying this type of floor there is no need to add any further type of underlay. The mat is not normally glued to the sub floor, as it lies in place under its own weight. Where the need to glue is specified then isobond adhesive can be used or any other water based acrylic glue. Please note that solvent based adhesives should not be used.

Where it is being laid under carpet, a carpet underlay should also be added (for comfort).

The mat can be turned up at the perimeter of the room if required to act as an integral flanking band and excess trimmed off. This is normally only necessary where a chipboard floor is being laid over and high traffic is expected.

The mat has very little thermal resistance so can be used alongside underfloor heating, it can be installed either above or below the UFH.

Best practice when using underfloor heating is to have a layer of PIR insulation, such as Celotex, at least 20mm thick, then overlaying it with the mat and then the underfloor heating. This will reduce any heat loss downwards.
