Our best selling underlay the QA Timbertech2 Acoustic Plus is engineered using a 5mm natural rubber with an integrated gold vapour barrier. The Acoustic Plus is our best performing underlay, with an impact noise reduction of 27dB and a density of 3.70kg/m², which is commonly associated with professional soundproofing products – designed for laminate, engineered wood and solid wood floors, whether a domestic or contract installation.
The heavy mass and stay-put quality attributed to the Acoustic Plus provides excellent resistance to compression, and impact sound reduction. The 5mm thickness will also compensate for any sub-floor imperfections.
- The sound of silence – Timbertech2 Acoustic Plus has an exceptional impact sound insulation level of 27dB along with a density of 3.70kg/m² which contributes to airborne noise reduction.
- Protects against moisture – The gold vapour barrier stops your floor covering being damaged by moisture rising from sub-floors (seal any gaps using a vapour tape).
- Heavyweight champ – The 5mm thickness combined with heavy mass and a high density ensure the floor covering is always fully supported, reducing wear and tear.
Underlay has been specifically designed to tackle impact noise, although some underlays share their qualities with professional soundproofing it does not mean it will be the complete solution. We would recommend that you install a layer of barrier such as Soundlay/Soundlay Plus or our range of CMS barrier mats to the sub-floor before laying the underlay to achieve optimum results.

Important! – When installing wood/laminate flooring you should apply a layer of 12mm T&G Plywood or MDF between the barrier mats and underlay to prevent any floor movement
