Acoustical Floating Flooring Underlayment
Designed for floating floor materials, Silent Stride recycled filaments are specially processed to cushion the floor to absorb sound, reducing unwanted noise. This helps make floating floors sound more like fastened wood. Although it can be installed over wood or concrete subfloors, Silent Stride can manage moisture that surfaces in the form of vapors that naturally come up from concrete subfloors. Since Silent Stride and concrete are both "breathable" capillary products, vapors that are emitted will never accumulate under the pad into harmful moisture, while the attached vapor barrier protects the overlying flooring from any attacking moisture. With Silent Stride flooring underlayment you get better moisture protection, as the fibers manage serious moisture concerns.
Available in 3' x 33.4' (100 sq ft) or 6' x 60' (360 sq ft) Rolls
Features and Benefits
Superior Sound Reduction - Recycled fibers absorb sound and keep it from traveling to other rooms. Makes click-together floating floors sound solid underfoot.
Moisture Protection - Recycled fibers allow installation over concrete to “breathe” - 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.
Smoothing Out Imperfections - Firm and supportive but flexible enough to form around subfloor surface roughness, helps to cut down on extra subfloor surface prepping time.
Insulating Value - Provides additional comfort to the entire home during seasonal temperature changes.
Approved for In-Floor Heating Systems - Allows heat to permeate evenly while helping to protect the floor covering material from thermal shock.
Made From Recycled Material - A patented manufacturing process repurposes post-industrial and pre and post consumer materials into high-performance underlayment.
Certified Clean and Safe Indoor Air Quality - No VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) or off-gassing from materials.
Competitively Priced - An ideal upgrade from 2-in-1 polyethylene or polystyrene products and is less costly than most frothed foam, cork or rubber underlayment with similar sound numbers.
