Rapid Floor Systems Underlayments Build a Better Floor Keeping the 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.

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.
