Best Option: Using Rubber Underlayment

Solid rubber is the most efficient underlayment for isolation of footfall and airborne noise. The thickness of the rubber needed for your project will vary depending on performance requirements, type of sub-floor, and the resilience of the ceiling below.

GenieMat RST

Recycled flat rubber underlayment in various thicknesses for different assembly requirements. Assemblies with resilient ceilings can use the thinner RST-02 or RST-05. Assemblies with fixed ceilings or high performance requirements can use the RST-10 or thicker. Rubber underlayment can be used with layers of mass and damping installed over the rubber.

Second Option: Dampen the Floors

Over wood structures, adding layers of mass with a damping compound between will help to isolate both airborne and footfall impact noise transfer. If the ceilings below are resilient, the benefit of adding a damping compound to the floor will be increased dramatically.

Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound Tubes

Used as a damping compound between multiple layers of wood to control flanking and sound transfer throughout the structure. Minimal benefit for isolating sound from below unless the ceiling is resilient on clips or channel. We recommend tubes for smaller or DIY projects.

Green Glue Compound Five Gallon Pail

Used as a damping compound between multiple layers of wood to control flanking and sound transfer throughout the structure. Minimal benefit for isolating sound from below unless the ceiling is resilient on clips or channel. We recommend pails for larger projects for savings in time and cost.

Third Option: Add Mass to the Floors

Simple wood structures with minimal mass can benefit from the addition of TotalMass Barrier MLV. Somewhat by the additional mass, but mostly by adding a material to the assembly that does not resonate like other common building materials. Only gains in airborne isolation can be expected.

TotalMass MLV Barrier

Both 1 LB and 2 LB are available. The 2 LB will perform noticeably better than 1 LB, but most of the initial gains can be achieved with the 1 LB. Footfall impact noise will not be improved.

    1 LB 4' x 25'
  • $175.00
    2 LB 4' x 20'
