The best acoustic base layers for laminate floors are both 10 mm thick, so they don't raise the floor height much higher than a standard base. The SoundMat 3 Plus is an unparalleled soundproof mat designed to reduce unwanted impacts and airborne noise, especially suitable for the final finishing of carpet floors. Generally speaking, the thicker the laminate floorboards are, the quieter they will be. This is because they contain more high-density cores and allow for less sound transfer.
Two of our lower layers provide isolation from drum noise: the 19 dB Quickstep Unisound Combiflor and the 17 dB Quickstep Silent Walk. They can be used with laminate or engineered floors and are ideal for sneaking out to eat something at midnight. If you have a floor above or below your room, it's a good idea to invest in a soundproof base. In addition to placing a laminate base, there are a few other things you should do to reduce creak and ensure that your new floor is as quiet as possible.
In the case of other soundproof mats, it is necessary to place them under the underfloor heating, due to their mass and the material from which they are made. This will provide excellent impact noise reduction and the engineered wood floors are heavy enough to hold the base in place. If it bothers you to hear noise from other parts of the house in your bathroom, you can invest in a soundproof base. Proven acoustic insulation, such as the SoundMat 2 Plus, acts like a floating floor, helping to absorb vibrations from impacts before they enter the floor structure.
If you are looking for soundproof underfloor heating for laminate floors, Duralay Heat Flow is the best product. Ideal for new construction, conversions and remodeling when it is necessary to improve the aerial soundproofing capacity of floors. In this case, you would need to place a 12 mm hardwood layer on the soundproofing base before placing the floor tiles. By following some of these steps, you'll be sure to get the best level of soundproofing for your room.
Being made of high density foam, it will rectify any imperfections in the subfloor and help create a level surface on which to lay the laminate. Although you should have a base in every room of your house, you don't need a soundproof base in every room. Depending on the type of floor for which the base is intended, it will depend on the type of material and the thickness you choose.
