Quiet Walk is a premium underlayment choice allowing firm support for multiple types of flooring with great acoustic benefits. Built with sound reduction and moisture dissipation in mind.

  • Use with laminate, floating engineered, floating bamboo and luxury vinyl plank (5mm and thicker). Underlayment is for floating floor applications (Flooring that required no glue or nail down.) Will not work with nail/staple or glue down applications or luxury vinyl flooring that is 4mm or thinner flooring.
  • Superior sound reduction recycled fibers absorbs sound and keep it from traveling to other rooms, makes click-together floating floors sound solid underfoot.
  • IIC (Impact Insulation Class) Sound Rating of 71. IIC is a measure of how much impact sound (walking, kids playing, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floor covering, underlayment, and building structure and emerging in the room below.
  • STC (Sound Transmission Class) Sound Rating of 66. STC is a measure of how much airborne sound (speech, TV, stereo, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floor covering, underlayment, and building structure and emerging in the room below.
  • Delta IIC Sound Rating of 22. Delta rating is the best rating to consider when comparing the performance of different types of underlayment.
  • Moisture protection recycled fibers allow installation over concrete to & managing vapors from becoming bulk moisture. The attached vapor barrier protects the overlying floors from harmful moisture.
  • Compression resistant dense recycled fiber structure supports the click-together mechanism and will uphold its supportive configuration under the consistent traffic of the overlying floor.
  • QuietWalk’s compression resistance exceeds the requirement for pre-attached flooring that is greater than 29 psi @50% per ASTM D1667. The high compression resistance assures that the underlayment will not contribute to floor decoupling.
  • Greenguard Gold Certified. Meets health based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities.
  • Approved for in-floor radiant heat systems allows heat to permeate evenly while helping to protect the floor covering material from thermal shock, achieve warmth with quiet warmth radiant heat system
  • Easy installation – roll out and join the seam
  • Mold and Mildew Resistant
  • Made from Recycled Material in USA
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • R-Value of 0.58. R-Value is a measure of the insulating ability of the underlayment.
  • Result expresses the amount of moisture emissions the concrete emits using a calcium chloride test.
  • Use for both residential and commercial.
