privacy-acousticork-underlayPrivacy Acousticork Underlay is recognized in the building industry as some of the most effective sound control and crack suppression underlayments used under hard surface floors.

Residential and commercial high-rise complexes such as condominiums, hotels and motels throughout the United States, Canada and Europe have used AcoustiCORK Underlayments to reduce unwanted noise. Acousticork Products are designed to meet building codes and condominium association requirements for floor/ceiling assemblies using ceramic tile, marble, stone or hardwood floors.

Sound Rating for AcoustiCORK Underlay
AcoustiCORK Products have been tested in accordance to ASTM standards for acoustical values at Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories, an independent laboratory accredited by the National Bureau of Standards of the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, NVLAP. Its unique wave texture minimizes direct contact with the subfloor, resulting in a 25 IIC improvement in impact noise transmission, as tested per ASTM E-2179, the highest documented performance for an underlayment less than ¼” thick.
