Acoustilay, Acoustic Flooring Underlay System
Acoustilay is a unique acoustic flooring underlay. It is designed to be installed as easily and quickly as a conventional carpet underlay but with the additional benefit of acoustic insulation. Acoustilay is ideal for use in domestic applications where privacy and comfort are important. Acoustilay provides the easiest and most convenient method of improving both the airborne (TV, music, speech) and impact sound insulation of an existing floor.
Acoustilay combines excellent sound insulation with all of the qualities expected of a good underlay, hard wearing, good dynamic loading and a luxury feel. Simply laid on to an existing timber or concrete floor and easily cut with a trimming knife.
Acoustilay offers the economy of quick installation. It is easily formed into any shape and being between 10mm and 15mm thick it minimises the increase in floor level. Carpet is laid directly on top and fixed using either carpet grippers or adhesive.
Three grades of Acoustilay are available to deal with airborne and impact noise. Airborne noise problems are usually created by speech, music, television etc. whereas impact noise is generated by footstep, moving furniture and the like. Acoustilay 8 and 15 are used in instances where both impact and airborne noise is a concern and Acoustilay 3 for impact noise only.

Acoustilay 3 is for use where only impact noise insulation is required, it has the same resilient base but the attenuating layer is reduced to a thinner flexible membrane. The overall thickness is only 10mm. Acoustilay 3 offers very high impact noise insulation and is suitable for both timber and concrete floors.
Acoustilay 8 has the same resilient base bonded to one attenuating layer, giving a thickness of only 12mm. Impact noise performance Is similar to that for Acoustilay 15 but airborne noise insulation will depend to a greater extent on the existing structure.
Acoustilay 15 is for use where both airborne and impact noise insulation is required. It is constructed with a resilient foam core bonded between two flexible attenuating surfaces and has an overall thickness of 15mm.
