Silentstep RU

soundproofing underlay for timber and tile flooring

Silentstep RU is a high-quality, impact underlay made from polymerically-bound recycled rubber. It has excellent sound impact attenuating properties for both new and old buildings.

Various densities and thicknesses are available to suit ceramic tiles, vinyl, carpet and timber flooring applications. Each density is specifically engineered to meet specifiers’ acoustical requirements.

Silentstep RU is suitable for all common construction and installation methods. It can be installed on timber and concrete sub-bases, and can be used in wet areas when installing in conjunction with an appropriate waterproofing membrane.

Applications

  • Multistorey living areas constructed from lightweight materials with the intention to lay carpet
  • Placed under solid timber or parquetry flooring using Pyrotek’s flooring systems - contact your local Pyrotek Representative
  • Marine vessels to stop engine noise travelling into staterooms, salons, VIP cabins etc.
  • Transport industry; under automotive, firewalls, wheel arches, boot mats, and transmission tunnels
  • Motor homes and luxury motor coaches

Features

  • Made from 100% recycled material
  • No ozone-depleting substances are generated during manufacture
  • Free from lead, odour-producing oils and bitumen
  • Easily installed by quality carpet layers. No special tools or fixtures required
  • Available in roll or sheet form, or custom made to suit (minimum order quantities apply)

Installation

  • Use standard domestic carpet gripper unless otherwise directed.
  • Lay the foam side of the Silentstep onto the floor surface.
  • Butt the edges of the Silentstep together – join each sheet with good quality underlay tape.
  • Silentstep has sufficient internal weight to remain in position during the fitting of the carpet. Bonding and stapling will reduce the acoustic performance of the material.
  • Cut the Silentstep in as per normal underlay installation.
  • Make certain the carpet is firmly attached to the leading gripper pins.
  • Bolster the carpet between the far side gripper edge and skirting board.
