Acoustical Underlayment

Underlayment that’s sustainable and sound absorbing.


SILENT-TREAD, which is comprised of up to 86% post-consumer recycled content, contributes to sound reduction within a room, and helps block sound transmission to the room below. When installed in a properly designed flooring system, SILENT-TREAD can enable a building to meet and exceed national building code and sound reduction requirements. Our underlayments are used as a base mat for sports surface applications.

Commercial Applications

SILENT-TREAD for Commercial Applications

A beautifully designed floor is only as good as the surface it is installed over. Laminate, engineered wood, and even hardwood can exhibit a hollow sound from everyday foot traffic. Tile, while durable, can benefit from the addition of this comfort layer underneath.

SILENT-TREAD is the superior choice for corporate, multi-family, hospitality, education, and healthcare spaces where reducing sound transmission will benefit the occupants and enable a building to meet and exceed national building code and sound reduction requirements.

Sports venues utilize SILENT-TREAD as a base mat for sports surface applications thanks to its resilient properties.
