Q:What's the IIC Rating for this padding??
by|Feb 29, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for your question. We did not test this product but we have tested the Step Ahead product which is an 8# density 7/16" product and the IIC rating on that thickness is 79. We believe the 5/16" thickness would be close if not the same.

      Q:Can this be glued down to subfloor under carpet
      by|Oct 20, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for your question. We do not recommend this product be glued to the subfloor. The recommended installation over concrete is to spot glue in the perimeter of the room and using seaming tape for the seams. Please follow the recommended residential carpet installation by the Carpet Rug Institute -- #105

        Q:Does this have any rubber or latex? I'm trying to determine if I can use it as a rug pad on top of lvp.

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for your question. The product does not include rubber or latex which could affect the LVP. This product would be an excellent choice to be used under your area rugs over the LVP.

            Awesome padding
            Better than I expected, great for the babies and older children. Also much better than the padding previously installed by professional installers at my sisters home. She was so impressed by the feel compared to what she had. Plan on using it again soon at my other home to sell. Intalled it in my basement, two bedrooms and living room. Kids had a great time doing cartwheels and playing tag on it. Im very impressed with it, plus it has a spill proof barrier to prevent soaking thru. Probably great for pets to protect the hardwood floors.
