Soundproofing a floor is one of the best ways to isolate sound transmission from an upper unit to a lower unit in an apartment or condo building. Whether you are planning to install a hardwood floor or carpet and pad, we have the right floor underlay to meet your needs and to satisfy the association board’s requirements for impact sound reduction. With the greater amount of multi family dwellings being built these days, homeowners associations and boards are requiring that certain IIC (impact isolation coefficient) and STC (sound transmission class) ratings be met in order to keep the transmission of sound from migrating down to the neighbors below. If you are living in an upper unit of a condo or apartment complex, and you are planning to put down a hardwood floor in place of carpet and pad, rest assured that your association board has guidelines that must be met prior to installing your new hardwood or tile floor.
To meet these guidelines you will need to call an expert in the field who can help you find a soundproof floors underlay that will meet or exceed the requirements of your association board. When looking at a floor sound insulation underlay, always ask for a specifications sheet that gives you the STC and IIC rating of each particular floor assembly. You will need this sheet to present to your homeowners association board.
