AcoustaMat is an innovative product that uses specially engineered recycled rubber underlays to meet the acoustical requirements of all common construction and installation methods. It can be used as excellent, eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to ceramic tiles, vinyl flooring, carpets or floor lamination.
AcoustaMat has been individually tested at the CSIRO Laboratory in Melbourne in accordance with the requirements of ISO 140-8 and ISO 140-6. All products were tested at the CSIRO which employed a 150mm concrete slab at the time of testing.
AcoustaMat 850RG is our recommended acoustic underlay for carpeted applications, and can be used in conjuction with carpet underlays where required. The higher density allows for effective acoustic results at a minimum thickness, keeping a low build height when used with carpet underlay.
Carpet tile installations require a firm underlay, as carpet tiles are depressionable when installed over a soft underlay. AcoustaMat 850RG is our recommendation for providing the required rigidity in this application with the best acoustic results.
Testing has confirmed that 850 density rubber underlay is just as effective and as similar to cork and rubber combinations, and while cork and rubber may be more recognised by the industry, we recommend re-grind (RG) underlay where possible for greater environmental responsibility. By using our re-grind underlay, you are also supporting an A1 Rubber environmental initiative to ensure none of our products end up in landfill.
AcoustaMat 700 density is suited for ceramic installations where a screed bed is required over the acoustic underlay. The 700 density AcoustaMat is 100% recycled tyre rubber, which bears higher elasticity at a lower density which allows for better attenuation in this application over higher density underlays.
AcoustaMat 720 density cork and rubber is suitable for use under vinyl planking 3mm thick or more. The cork in AcoustaMat 720 desnsity cork provides stabalising piers for user under thinner vinyls, making it a cost effective option.
AcoustaMat 850RG is suitable for use under vinyl planking 5mm thick or more. Using AcoustaMat 850RG is a sustainable and cost effective option under thicker vinyl planking.
