Description

QuietWalk Luxury Vinyl is a 100 sq. ft. premium recycled fiber underlayment built for luxury vinyl plank, luxury vinyl tile and multi-layer flooring. Suited for both floating and glue down installations either in residential and commercial applications. Impressive sound ratings (providing exceptional through-the-floor and footfall noise protection) make this underlayment the ideal underlayment to be installed under LVT, LVF and MLF flooring; with STC rating of 62, IIC rating of 70 and Delta IIC of 28.

  • Fiber Underlayment specifically designed for floating and glue down luxury vinyl flooring including luxury vinyl plank, luxury vinyl tile, laminate floors, floating engineered wood, glue-down engineered wood, glue-down wood, Rigid Core Vinyl Plank, Wood/Plastic Composite and Multi-Layer Flooring
  • Thin, dense fibers to support all luxury vinyl and multilayer floors
  • Highest rated delta IIC rating of 28. The higher the number, the better the sound won't transfer from another room. The Delta IIC rating is the best rating to consider when comparing the performance of different types of underlayments.
  • IIC Sound rating of 70. The higher the number, the better the sound insulation. Measures of how much impact sound (walking, kids playing, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floor covering, underlayment, and building structure and emergin in the room below.
  • STC Rating of 62. The higher the number, the better the sound is absorbed. The STC measures 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.
  • No VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) or off-gassing from materials
  • Provides additional comfort to the entire home during seasonal temperature changes
  • 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 and alkalinity
  • A patented manufacturing process repurposes post-industrial and post-consumer materials into high-performance underlayment
  • Recycled fibers absorb sound and keep it from traveling to other rooms, makes click-together floating floors sound solid underfoot.
  • Treated with anti-microbial to inhibit mold and mildew growth.
  • Can be used with radiant heat flooring

Installation Instructions

Floating Floors

  1. Roll out underlayment and flip over so vapor barrier side is facing up and butt seams together
  2. Apply moisture barrier seam tape, and ensure underlayment seams run perpendicular to the floor covering seams
  3. Click & lock floating floors over the top according to manufacturer

Single Glue Down Floors

  1. Roll out underlayment and flip over so vapor barrier side is facing up and butt seams together
  2. Float the underlay ensuring seams run perpendicular to the flooring seams and apply a 2" wide clear packaging tape centered over the seam
  3. Adhere flooring over the top using floor manufacturer's recommended adhesive and trowel size. Follow all adhesive manufacturer's instructions for appropriate bonding.

Double Glue Down Floors

  1. Roll out underlayment and flip over so vapor barrier side is facing up and butt seams together, ensure seams run perpendicular to the flooring seams
  2. Adhere to subfloor using pressure sensitive adhesive and recommended trowel size and install method
  3. Roll over the underlayment with a 75 or 100 pound roller
  4. Adhere flooring over the top using floor manufacturer's recommended adhesive and trowel size. Follow all adhesive manufacturer's instructions for appropriate bonding.

    Works with LifeProof Flooring

    Posted by Carrie E on 3rd Feb 2020

    We purchased LifeProof flooring from Home Depot and was contemplating of installing an underlayment. We choose QuietWalk luxury vinyl underlayment and couldn't be happier with out well it helped with sound.

    Better than foam underlayment

    Posted by James Rowe on 31st Dec 2019

    I used to purchase the cheap foam rolls however after using QuietWalk LV, all I can say is WOW. This made our floor super quiet.

    Strongly recommend using an underlayment for LVF!

    Posted by Michael on 23rd Oct 2019

    It really makes a difference regarding sound and overall comfort! Pricey but worth the cost.
