Highly recommend if wanting to reduce noise transfer from one level to another !

This type of Layment is is designed to be installed under the Underlay and smootheadging, does not need to be fixed down as the weight will hold it in place, it can be glued to floor if required !

When installed it will raise the final floorcovering height by 5mm.

This product can simply laid out over a ceramic floor to give a safer non slip environment for parties & functions etc.

AcoustaLay now comes in 1m2 sheets ($15 each), this reduces the wastage as you only order what you require.

Acousti-Cushion 

We recommend the use of this Heavy Duty foam underlay !

As this product is 12mm thick, you will not need to fit a timber battern underneath the standard 8mm smoothedge as this underlay is not that dense, so it will easily compress down to smoothedge height. (read additional information)
