Our revolutionary QuietWalk laminate floor underlayment smoothes out little sub-floor imperfections while quieting impact sound and floor to ceiling noise. Not only does it dampen ambient sound in the room it is installed in, but it also inhibits sound from traveling into the room below. The recycled fibers that comprise QuietWalk are randomly air laid which offers the best cost-effective foundation and premium sound control for laminate floating flooring in the marketplace today.
