Acoustipad underlayment is installed under carpeting as an integral component of floor/ceiling noise abatement designs using Acoustiblok material.
Used floor installations (post-construction), after decking is down, between decking or concrete and Acoustiblok for carpet floor finishes. When used in addition to Acoustiblok, the Acoustipad works to decouple the Acoustiblok from the structural floor surface. The 3/8" thick foam pad is lightweight, flexible and easy to work with.
Roll Size: 4' x 35' (140 SqFt.)
Acoustiblok® is a 1/8 inch thick proprietary viscoelastic polymer material with a high density mineral content, heavy and yet extremely flexible. As sound waves cause the Acoustiblok material to flex, internal friction occurs (isothermal/adiabatic) and the acoustical energy is dissipated into undetectable trace amounts of heat. A one 1/8 inch layer of Acoustiblok in a standard wall will result in more sound reduction than 12 inches of poured concrete.
