49dB Impact Reduction*

Noises like footsteps on wood flooring and washing machines.

16 mm additional System Height

The height added to your floor after the system is installed.


Hear the difference.

Play the video to hear the airborne sound difference before and after installing this system. For best results try to match the volume of the unreduced audio to the volume of the noise you’re able to hear.

The noise in the video has been digitally reduced to give you an idea of the sorts of results you could expect. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect science and your personal results could vary due to myriad reasons. However, we have found our customers prefer to hear a decibel reduction rather than read it!

We stand for quality, and we are proud of it.

Our MuteMat® 3 Premium Plus system is our highest performing solution for soundproofing timber floors, one that covers a vast range of requirements.

This system seeks to improve both airborne and impact noise issues whilst offering you complete performance against even the most intrusive noises.

MuteMat® 3 is compressible while still dense and is combined in a full system with 18mm cement fibre board, made of a dense mix of concrete and chipboard, both creating an effective ‘barrier’ against airborne noise. Tecsound is also part of our ‘Premium Plus’ systems; a visco-elastic material that reduces vibration and breaks down sound energy by turning it into heat. There is also acoustic mineral wool to fit between the joists, at no less than 45kg per m3, and use of isolation strips to produce a floating floor.

It is all these materials combined that make it ideal for those looking to achieve the best soundproofing for your floor; one that reduces overhearing of a clear conversation brings down levels of footsteps to background noise levels and even HIFI audio devices that generate low-frequencies. Although these are noise issues commonly associated with what you find at home, especially in dense-living, multiple dwellings, these disturbances are similar to those you hear in the workplace. We recommend this system for both homes and workplaces.

How to reduce walking noise from upstairs floors

You may love your neighbours but anyone can be driven to distraction when it comes to walking noise from upstairs floors. Perhaps you’re a landlord and your tenants are driving each other crazy with walking noise from upstairs floors.

Often the cheapest solution to this problem is to treat the noise at its source rather than soundproofing your ceiling so if you own both the flats or are on good terms with your neighbours you may consider a floor treatment rather than a ceiling treatment to reduce walking noise.

Advice and installation

Our team are always a phone call away ready to offer advice and support. Our systems can be installed by competent DIYers but if you would like to work with an installer we have relationships with installers up and down the UK that we can put you in touch with.

  • If you have multiple adjacent surfaces or partitions to soundproof input them individually. Not as a total m2 input as this will affect the results.
  • If you have windows, fireplaces or other fixed structures we recommend booking a call with us before purchasing.


A soundproofing system isn’t rocket science but sometimes figuring out which one is right for you can be challenging. Check out our FAQs, get in touch via our live chat, or give us a call to speak to a human.

Yes when applied to the upstairs floor it will drastically reduce the walking noise from upstairs that you are hearing in your downstairs area below.

Both MuteMat® 3 and Tecsound are dense and flexible, helping to drastically reduce airborne noise issues – Tecsound is also available in a range of upgrades up to Tecsound S100, a 10kg per m2 visco-elastic membrane. We would expect to find that noise issues such as conversation, television and low level music without the use of large high-fidelity systems are reduced to background noise levels in common double plasterboard structures with a 10dB reduction for around the middle to higher frequencies, 10dB is a 50% reduction in terms of loudness levels.

For small office environments we expect to see common noise issues akin to those found at home, conversation being a major one that can often distract from peoples performance or feel like others are in earshot of occasional private conversations, reducing their right to privacy.

Then we have larger environments which may contain open plan rooms with a range of teams all working out of one space with offices above or below. MuteMat® 3 is suitable for both these types of scenarios for both impact and airborne noise reduction.

If lifting floorboards is not possible, perhaps for Grade Listed status structures or simple unable to for other reasons – the omission of any sound insulation material in cavities can range from drastically affecting acoustic performance to only a little, but there are a lot of factors that can be at play to determine this also. It is not achieving the best acoustic performance possible, especially where airborne noise is concerned. Impact will see the biggest uplift of the two, but again, not to the same degree as when installed as a full soundproofing system.

Timber structures are subject to great changes over time, bending and buckling of joists, damp and settling in bowed positions – all give way to acoustic performances to some level, especially if there is creaking or movement in the joists, this makes it very difficult to determine Part E Building Regulations and its successful passing without knowing the structure currently. If a ceiling partition is already installed you may wish to carry out an acoustic test to survey the build and how it currently performs acoustically – if there is no ceiling partition or a single layer of plasterboard it would be best to install a suspended ceiling system below like the ones from the MuteClip® ceiling soundproofing range. With the planning of a new timber structure we can put together acoustic partition designs with your proposals in mind to look at estimated figures for both impact and airborne noise.

All rolled carpets can be pulled directly over MuteMat® 3 without any need for an over boarding, Carpet Gripper Strips will need to be fit around the perimeter of each room to raise the gripper rods to a more suited height. Hard floor finishes such as the wood of laminate or engineered would require a 6mm ply minimum bonded to MuteMat® 3 to act as a stable base, and lightweight and delicate floor finishes: parquet, luxury vinyl tile such as Karndean and Amtico, and ceramic tiling, for example, require a 9mm ply minimum, also bonded to act as a stable base.
