The DriWick Technology in QuietWalk premium acoustic underlayment for floating floors relies on a blend of antimicrobial treated recycled fibers that will wick away subfloor moisture while protecting flooring materials.
Recycled fibers are designed to blanket the floor, absorbing impact and ambient noise.
STC is a measure of how much airborne sound (speech, TV, stereo, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floorr covering, underlayment, and building structure and emerging in the room below.
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.

Under layment is very easy to handle and seals well with its self sealing stripsFeels very comfortable and actually absorbs the sound to create a real floor sound

We converted out smallest bedroom into an exercise room. Rolling the treadmill and rowing machine around isn't easy on carpeting. So we decided to tear it out and install a snap in floating hickory floor.
Quiet Walk underlayment was a perfect choice versus foam. It comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Any moister under the floor is wicked and passed through the ends to evaporate.

We chose this underlayment material because, while there are several competing products with slightly better acoustic deadening specs, this one had significantly better thermal insulation specs. Since we are in a single-level house, acoustic isolation for below the floor was not a concern, but heat loss through the floor was. Decent acoustic specs are nice though to minimize “clacking” of footsteps in the house.
