MuteMat™ USP 750-10 is our robust, mid tier pimpled acoustic underscreed resilient layer designed for achieving a high level of impact reduction between the floating concrete screed and structural concrete slab layers; it's high performance comes from it's deviated pimpled structure which are found at both 5mm and 10mm - helping to secure minimum points of contact between the two layers. As a dense and robust product it maintains a low level of compressibility and when subjected to high points loads it maintains it's acoustic performance making it suitable for a wide range of applications in residential, commercial and industrial structures, especially where particular low frequency noise issues and machinery operation is concerned, this is tailored to reduce acoustic issues such as these.

Although MuteMat™ USP is high performing in concrete builds it can also be implemented in other builds including timber to create a floating floor, with the additional benefit to lay floor finishes direct on top.

How to Soundproof a Floor

With soundproofing screeding layers you will require a dense acoustic underscreed product such as our MuteMat™ USP. Due to the dense molecular construction and high mass of concrete this results in impact and low frequency noise issues travelling further,  a material with a high compressibility will present satisfactory results initially but as it crushes overtime the majority of the acoustic performance will be lost resulting in costly remedial works. Depending on your requirements it may be necessary to couple with our MuteClip System ceiling range to ensure an increased impact performance and airborne performance, we have a range of options depending on what your project is aiming to achieve, as well as considerations regarding space lost.

For Gym Soundproofing we suggest combining MuteMat™ USP with our DuraSound range for best acoustic performance.

If you are uncertain on the current acoustic performance, we would recommend our Acoustic Testing service to give us a clear view of what the structure currently performs at and what materials you would likely require in order to meet regulations or guidelines, and in some cases this could even reduce costs in specifying an alternative material that is more suited for your requirements.

This product is part of the following systems:

Concrete constructions are made up of a structural concrete slab which is blended up of sharp, uneven aggregates - leaving a rough finish, a screed layer is then applied over the top to level out the unevenness leaving a smooth finish. In most cases, and especially in large residential structures, before the screeding stage most will want to include in their specification a sound proof under screed to float the screed away from the structural concrete - helping to sound insulate the floor from impact noise. Concrete is very effective at soundproofing against airborne noise because of the sheer mass it presents, impact on the other hand noise travels greater distances and because of it's dense molecular construction and amount of direct contact it has with the adjacent surfaces - flanks through these connected paths by way of Flanking Transmission.

MuteMat™ USP 750-10 deviates between two levels, leaving a pimpled structure which gives it minimal points of contact between the floor finish and the sub-floor, and because of this it can be used  to soundproof against impact noise in timber structures.  It is recommended to cross-fix two layers of 6mm ply, glued and screwed to the top of the MuteMat™ USP 750-10 to give a level and stable floor. It can also be used in soundproofing small home gym projects in conjunction with our Gym Soundproofing range where timber structures could suffer from excessive impact noise, it can be used in recording studios and other audio focused suites too along with cinema rooms where bass frequencies are to be expected in abundance and can travel through materials that are in direct contact, these require separation.

Mute Mat™ USP 750-10 requires no adhesive in structural concrete and screed scenarios, it is simply rolled out and taped - ready for a screed layer. For direct application of floor finishes like engineer wood, laminate or luxury vinyl tile, we would recommend the installation of two layers of 6mm ply cross-fixed with the glue and screw method to leave a stable base.

This will often be for the specifier to decide on whether it is required or not.

10 kN/m2 = < 7% loss of thickness.

15 kN/m2 = < 10.6% loss of thickness.

20 kN/m2 = < 14.3% loss of thickness.

MuteMat™ USP 750-10 is best cut with a fresh Stanley blade and a straight edge or metal ruler, always cut away from your body and behind the straight edge.
