Q:what is the difference between HIIC and IIC M condo requires at least a 70 IIC rating
by|Jan 6, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  The two tests are similar, but the HIIC focuses on the floor/ceiling assembly's ability to mitigate high-frequency impact sounds. Whereas the IIC test focuses on the floor/ceiling assembly's ability to mitigate impact sound in general.

    Q:Can you use this with radiant heating mat as a barrier between cement basement floor? I plan to install a 6mil vapor barrier, then the underlayment, then radiant heating mat. I think I will need to use some type of floor leveling then lvl flooring
    by|Dec 17, 2023
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello. FloorMuffler is approved for use with radiant heat flooring systems. FloorMuffler is a moisture barrier, so there is no need for a 6 mil poly film. Please check with the manufacturer of the radiant heat flooring system regarding your installation to ensure that FloorMuffler is compatible with this particular system.

      Q:Will this product help prevent condensation between a concrete subfloor and vinyl plank flooring
      by|Nov 3, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello. FloorMuffler has not been tested to determine if it has any effect on the presence of condensation. However, the product is a moisture barrier with a moisture vapor transmission rate of 0.2 lbs per 1,000 square feet per 24 hours. It is recommended to test your subfloor for the presence of moisture prior to installing any flooring system.

          Floor muffler
          We purchased this product for our upstairs bathroom remodel. It is a very thin layer but will be great as an additional underpayment and moisture barrier! We are tearing out old tile and replacing with Luxury Vinyl. The vinyl has a thin backing but we wanted this additional layer to reduce the sound transfer from upstairs. It has a flap on one side and self adhesive strip on the opposite side to ensure no gaps, and ease installation! No additional tape needed.

          Well made
          The floor Muffler 100 square feet 4 foot wide is very well made. The roll is super convenient to use and the padding makes a nice difference. If you purchase a vinyl planking or laminate floor that doesnt have the underlayment attached, this is a great alternative. Priced fairly well as underlayment prices go. I would definitely recommend this product.

          Appears to do the job
          Looking for an underlayment that is both a vapor barrier protectant and a noise reducer. My plank flooring did not have padding on the underside and in need of a product like the FloorMuffler. Very easy to install and cut. I think it also levels out your sub flooring for a seamless installation. I do feel the slight padding underneath and that hollow knocking sound doesn’t exist. So I guess it is doing what it is supposed to do. So far so good… I’m happy.

          Excellent sound and moisture barrier.
          The FloorMuffler 100 sq. ft. 4 ft. x 25 ft. x 0.04 in. Premium Underlayment for Vinyl Plank Flooring is a great product to use as a barrier between your sub-floor and your Vinyl floor planking. This product is a quick and easy way to add a layer of protection as well as extra cushion to a new vinyl floor. It comes in a 48” wide by 25ft. for a total of 100 square feet. The closed cell construction of the material, won't let water seep through which provides a great moisture barrier as well as an excellent sound barrier. To complete the moisture barrier it has a self-sealing lip and tape system. Good quality material.

          WATER PROOF AND HELPS DAMPEN SOUND
          Unlike some underlayments, this has closed-cell foam construction instead of a vinyl sheet barrier. Closed cell won't let water seep through providing a great moisture barrier and is an excellant sound barrier. To complete the moisture barrier it has a self-sealing lip and tape system (see photo). ---- The acoustical performance is up there with other premium underlayments. You may have to do a little research to compare underlayments. ---- It carries a limited lifetime warranty. ---- It is lightweight and can be cut using scissors or a utility knife. ---- Internet # 324589036 Model # 0265265 UPC Code # 851312004749 Store SKU # 1009234673 FloorMuffler 100 sq. ft. 4 ft. x 25 ft. x 0.04 in.

          Perfect for protection, both moisture and noise.
          When you are looking for something not just to put under you vinyl or floating floor, but something to protect as well. Moisture barrier and sound deadening as well. Dining area, kitchen, bathroom or kids room. Protect as well as reduce the sound below. Great for commercial properties to reduce risks from moisture damage as well as noise issues. Apartment, restaurant or just the 2nd floor of any home.

          Protects Subfloors from Spills and Quiets Foot Traffic
          I'm using the FloorMuffler for noise deadening and waterproofing a hallway in our cabin remodel. The floor also has a few irregularities that the FloorMuffler will help to mitigate under the new flooring. The FloorMuffler features an adhesive strip designed to work with an included plastic film overlap tape. This system will seal the seam between two adjacent FloorMuffler pads. I did not need it for the hallway, but I will be using it on a larger floor. Laying out the FloorMuffler was predictably like playing whack-A-mole as the underlayment likes to maintain it's rolled curves. Another minor irritation was the lack of any markings on the pad to make it easier to cut a straight line. But the underlayment worked nicely once there was weight on it from the new flooring.

          Muffles and moisture barrier in one
          I just got in a roll of Floor Muffler. This comes in a 48” wide roll. It is a total of 100 square foot, this is an underlayment for a floating floor. I was using a similar product and ran out. This Floor Muffler will help me finish the job. I am putting in luxury vinyl plank. It needs this product to quiet down the floor when walking on or even making it quieter in the floor below. This product is easy to cut and has a self adhesive strip to seal to each other for a moisture barrier.
