Pour On the Advantages With Rapid Floor Systems

Rapid Floor Gypsum underlayments and Level-Right are now always green building materials.

Rapid Floor® Systems floor underlayments offer solutions for practically any flooring challenge-from new construction to renovation, commercial to single family applications. But the benefits don't stop there. In addition to fast installation and a new, smooth surface, they also bring significant sound control and fire resistance properties to every project.

Tailor-Made Solutions for Every Floor Challenge
New construction and renovation projects present their own special challenges. But Rapid Floor® Systems offer specific solutions, so you can customize installation for each project.

Rapid Floor® offers the advantage of a smooth, joint-free surface and is an excellent alternative to double wood floor construction in new, multifamily residential projects.

Rapid Floor® Plus provides the extra muscle required when the job calls for a tougher, more durable surface. Its flexible compressive strength can be formulated up to 3200 psi (22 MPa), for the increased surface hardness that's critical in renovation, single family and commercial projects.

Rapid Floor® Ultra is formulated to provide compressive strengths ranging from 2500 to 4000 psi (17.2 to 27.4 MPa), and offers an economical alternative to many concrete floor underlayment applications in commercial and renovation projects.

Rapid Radiant® is the ultimate underlayment for radiant heat applications.  Poured over hot water tubes or electric heating cables, it maximizes radiant heat performance while withstanding temperature fluctuations.

Level-Right® Self-Leveling Floor Underlayment is a specially formulated, high-strength, cementitious underlayment that can handle any floor leveling challenge-without shotblasting or scarifying.

Level-Right® Plus is a multi-purpose self-leveling floor underlayment, ideal for thin or thick topping applications over concrete. Levels, smooths and repairs, all with superior speed and a high strength set. It's the superior solution for 0-1-1/2" (0-38mm).  Dries fast to keep your job on schedule.

Level-Right® FS-10 is used when the job calls for a new floor that's smooth, level and super fast-setting. Levels, smoothes, and repairs 0 - 3/8" (0-10 mm).

Level-Right® WearTop is a self-leveling, portland cement-based topping that is pumped in and quickly fills dips, voids and cracks to create a flat, hard wear surface.

Commercial Topping® is fast drying and achieves compressive strengths up to 4500 psi (31 MPa). It's the ideal underlayment to meet ASTM F710 "Preparing Concrete to Receive Resilient Flooring." Plus it pours over VAT, VCT, terrazzo or ceramic, with no shotblasting required.

Conventional Underlayments Can't Compete

Conventional underlayments don't measure up to Rapid Floor® Systems underlayment's superior sound control and fire resistance.

Some underlayments, such as particleboard, change dimensions excessively with varying moisture conditions. Others such as plywood can delaminate, causing obnoxious squeaks and nail pops. Builders and building owners appreciate the ease with which Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments eliminate these problems and homeowners appreciate how effectively sound transmission is reduced.

Acousti-Mat® Sound Deadening Systems

Acousti-Mat® provides the superior sound control that’s fast becoming a standard amenity in today’s residential and commercial properties.  Ideal for new construction or renovation, Acousti-Mat® is now available in five levels of sound control.

Acousti-Mat® II, the industry standard sound control system. Increases IIC and STC levels up to 10 points over wood frame, and IIC up to 20 points over concrete.

Enkasonic,® the original sound control mat.
Increases IIC and STC levels up to 12 points over wood frames, and IIC up to 20 points over concrete.

Acousti-Mat® 3, for super sound control even in open beam, concrete slab and conventional wood frame floor systems. Increases IIC and STC levels up to 17 points over wood frame, and IIC up to 25 points over concrete.

Acousti-Mat LPR, Acousti-Mat® II, Enkasonic® and Acousti-Mat® 3 are now always made with 40% Pre-Consumer Recycled nylon — available with optional water resistant fabric. Covered with a GREENGUARD-certified Maxxon Underlayment, these Acousti-Mat Systems are the ultimate in green-friendly sound. Acousti-Mat® II, Acousti-Mat® 3 and Enkasonic® are GREENGUARD children and schools certified.

ACOUSTI-Mat® LP (Low Profile) system provides a permanent solution for impact sound control in concrete construction. The Acousti-Mat LP ststem achieves a Delta IIC ratings of 19, that's approximately a 75% reduction in impact noise over concrete floor systems.

Acousti-Mat® LPR system provides a low profile system that can be used in wood, concrete and steel construction. It can also have some floor goods directly applied.

Ideal for fast-track projects, Acousti-Mat installation is fast and easy. After laying Acousti-Mat over the subfloor, Maxxon® floor specialists pour a high-strength Maxxon underlayment on top, completing the system.

How Rapid Floor Systems Underlayments Build a Better Floor

Keeping Noise In Its Place
Keeping noise in its place is especially important in residential as well as commercial projects. Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments control sound transmission between rooms and between floors, so occupants enjoy greater peace, quiet and privacy. Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments fill cracks in the subfloor and seal perimeter joints, significantly reducing sound leaks. Their high density and monolithic application stiffen the floor, virtually eliminating squeaky floors and nail pops so prevalent in wood frame assemblies. Independent sound test results on a wide range of floor and ceiling assemblies are listed in the Sound Ratings table on this screen.

Enhancing Fire Safety
Wherever Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments flow into place - over plywood, into cracks, under walls - they create a flame barrier between wood and other flammable materials, retarding the spread of flame and smoke. Over precast concrete, they can increase the UL rating by two hours.

In testing by Underwriters Laboratories, Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments were rated 0 for flame spread, fuel contribution and smoke density.

A Smooth, New Surface-fast!

In practically no time at all, Rapid Floor® Systems can transform even rough, uneven and warped surfaces into smooth, flat floors ready for any specified floor goods - carpeting, vinyl, wood parquet or ceramic tile.

The time savings start with high-volume application equipment that can pump 1000 to 30,000 square feet (93 m² - 2787 m²) in one workday. Next, Rapid Floor® Systems underlayments set fast, so other subtrades can stay on schedule. The surface can be walked on within 90 minutes after pouring, although it is common practice to allow the underlayment to set overnight before resuming full traffic. By the very next morning, other trades can go about their work without costly delays.
