Product Overview

Quiet Walk is a premium 100 sq. ft. flooring underlayment choice allowing firm support for multiple types of flooring with great acoustic benefits. Built with sound reduction and water protection in mind. The DriWick Technology in QuietWalk premium acoustic underlayment for floating floors relies on a blend of antimicrobial treated recycled fibers that will wick away subfloor moisture while protecting flooring materials. Covers 100 Sq Ft - Roll Size: 33.33 ft. x 3 ft. x 1/8 in. : Package Size: 36 in. x 11 in. x 11 in.
  • Use with laminate, floating engineered, floating bamboo and luxury vinyl plank (5mm and thicker). Underlayment is for floating floor applications (Flooring that required no glue or nail down.) Will not work with nail/staple or glue down applications or luxury vinyl flooring that is 4mm or thinner flooring.
  • WATER PROTECTION: Exclusive Dri-Wick Technology of the recycled fibers allow installation over concrete to manage vapors from becoming bulk moisture. The attached vapor barrier protects the overlying floors from harmful water.
  • SOUND PROOFING: Superior noise reduction recycled fibers absorb sound and keep it from traveling to other rooms, makes floors sound solid underfoot
  • IIC (IMPACT INSULATION CLASS) SOUND RATING OF 71: IIC is a measure of how much impact sound (walking, kids playing, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floor covering, underlayment, and building structure and emerging in the room below. The higher the number generally indicates better sound absorption qualities.
  • STC (SOUND TRANSMISSION CLASS) SOUND RATING OF 66: STC is a measure of how much airborne sound (speech, TV, stereo, etc.) is reduced after traveling through the floor covering, underlayment, and building structure and emerging in the room below. The higher the number generally indicates better sound absorption qualities.
  • DELTA IIC SOUND RATING OF 22: Delta rating is the best rating to consider when comparing the performance of different types of underlayment.
  • GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFIED: One of the only underlayments on the market that is 3rd party certified. Meets health-based criteria for additional chemicals and also requires lower total VOC emissions levels to ensure that products are acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. Exceeds California's strict indoor air quality standards.
  • MOLD AND MILDEW RESISTANT: Treated with anti-microbial to inhibit mold and mildew growth
  • COMPRESSION RESISTANT: Dense recycled fiber structure supports the click-together mechanism and will uphold its supportive configuration under the consistent traffic of the overlying floor. Will not crush overtime under the traffic of everyday living.
  • HIDES SUBFLOOR IMPERFECTIONS: Firm and supportive but flexible enough to form around subfloor surface roughness, helps to cut down on extra subfloor surface prepping time.
  • EASY INSTALLATION: Roll out and join seams with built-in lip and tape system. No additional underlayment tape required.
  • APPROVED FOR PAD-ATTACHED FLOORING: QuietWalk's compression resistance exceeds the requirement for pre-attached flooring that is greater than 29 psi @50% per ASTM D1667. The high compression resistance assures that the underlayment will not contribute to floor decoupling.
  • FLOOR HEATING APPROVED: Approved for in-floor radiant heat systems allows heat to permeate evenly while helping to protect the floor covering material from thermal shock, achieve warmth with quiet warmth radiant heat system
  • NALFA CERTIFIED: QuietWalk meets all underlayment standards set by the North American Laminate Floor Association (NALFA).
  • MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIALS IN USA: A patented manufacturing process repurposes fiber materials into high-performance underlayments. Our landfills are spared from millions of tons each year of recycled materials we use to manufacture
  • LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY: QuietWalk products have a peace-of-mind lifetime warranty.
  • INSULATION VALUE: R-Value of 0.58. R-Value is a measure of the insulating ability of the underlayment. Helps insulate floors from seasonal temperature changes, furthering energy efficiency of the home.
  • INDUSTRY STANDARD SINCE 1997: QuietWalk is a reliable underlayment and has been installed in millions of homes and growing each year.

Answer

Both products have the same product characteristics. We suggest QuietWalk Luxury Vinyl when your vinyl plank is 2mm or thicker due to denser material. If your vinyl plank is 5mm or thicker, then we suggest QuietWalk underlayment.

QuietWalk underlayment is designed for flooring applications and not tested for behind walls. We know of homeowners using it for walls however the warranty is voided.

can it be used under vinyl plank stairs?

Answers

You can use regular QuietWalk with luxury vinyl plank that is 5mm or thicker. We also designed QuietWalk Luxury Vinyl Underlayment to work with 2mm or thicker luxury vinyl plank. Here is a link to that product: https://www.homedepot.com/p/QuietWalk-360-sq-ft-x-6-ft-x-60-ft-x-1-16-in-Acoustical-Underlayment-with-Vapor-Barrier-for-Luxury-Vinyl-Flooring-QWLV360/310572587

QuietWalk isn't recommended for nail down. The vapor barrier in QuietWalk Plus is better suited for this. Or even use our product Insulayment.

We currently do not have a perm rating however the water vapor transmission rate of QuietWalk is .423 lbs / 1000 sq ft / 24 hrs.

I think it would work fine. I see no difference in the flooring end result with 3/4 inch or more. But the quiet walk underlayment would add .58 R and sound deadening.

I would not be able to help you with that because I only used the underlayment with the vynil floor.

QuietWalk is pretty loud
We installed luxury vinyl flooring in our home in 2 stages; two years ago we did half the house using a vapor barrier and generic plastic underlayment (not QuietWalk) and this year did the rest of the home using QuietWalk. The flooring 2 years ago did not have a foam backing, but what we got this year did. Same SKU, but the material changed. The flooring from 2 years ago feels tight to the concrete floor, has almost no "give", and is pretty quiet. The flooring from this year feels bouncy when you walk on it, and is really loud. Like, the cat jumping off the bed and walking down the hall in the night will wake you up. Even with just stocking feet, there's no way to walk quietly on the QuietWalk half of the house. It's not just a little louder, it is significantly louder. The wife prefers the feel of the half without QuietWalk, but I prefer the feel of the floor with QuietWalk. We both agree on the loudness comparison though.

I bought this to put under engineered bamboo flooring. It adds a noticeable layer of cushion to the floor. The house seems much quieter now. I'm not hearing as much outside noise from music or traffic from a nearby highway. There's now an echo in the house and inside noises are louder and more crisp. I've been wanting to soundproof my walls for several years, but haven't gotten around to it, but I was unaware that most of the bothersome noise was coming up through the floor. Now I don't need to soundproof the walls, because QuietWalk works. The moisture barrier is a big plus, but the sound barrier is top notch. It was well worth the little extra money per square foot.

This product is not quite at all. I bought 400 square feet of it and after walking on the wood to test it, it was so loud. It had a hollow sound when walking on it. I returned the rest of it. I've had other underlayment that was much more quieter.
