Insulayment® Multipurpose Acoustical Underlayment
Made from recycled materials in a patented process where air-laid filaments create a capillary effect to absorb impact and airborne sound, Insulayment is the best acoustic underlay for wood flooring. This acoustical underlayment insulates the transfer of impact noise to lower level rooms and better supports wood flooring than commonly prescribed 15 lb asphalt saturated felt paper. Insulayment's sound ratings meet or exceed most building code requirements for multi-family dwellings.
Available in 3' x 33.4' (100 sq ft) or 6' x 60' (360 sq ft) Rolls
