Our Acoustic underlays are designed to absorb the sound of footsteps and prevent sound from travelling through the floor. This is a great choice for upstairs.
Whilst all underlays will offer a certain level of thermal insulation, some are specifically designed for the job. This is great if you want to make the most of your heating.
If you’re installing over underfloor heating, you won’t want to stop too much of the heat from trying to get through. We have specially designed paperfelt and foam underlays which give a thin layer of protection without blocking the heat.
DPM (Damp Proof Membrane)
If you’re laying your floor over concrete or water-based underfloor heating, you’ll need an underlay with a Damp Proof Membrane. This stops moisture travelling up from the ground and soaking your floor from underneath.
