52dB Impact Reduction*

Noises like footsteps on wood flooring and washing machines.

10 mm additional System Height

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

NOISE REDUCTION

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 while offering you something with a complete performance against even the most intrusive noises.

MuteMat® 3 is compressible and is also dense. In our full system, it is combined with cement fibre board 18mm, which is a cement particle board, made of a dense mix of concrete and chipboard. This rigid and heavy board with MuteMat® 3 create 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 also reduces the low frequency sound commonly generated by HIFI audio devices. 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 soundproof a floor

Below we look at an overview of how to soundproof your floor using MuteMat OSF 10 Premium Pro system.

  1. Install high density mineral wool in between flooring joists. This will help soundproof against airborne noise traveling between floors.
  2. Adhere isolation strips to your joists. Pimpled isolation strips help to absorb impact and create a ‘floating floor’ effect.
  3. Board your floor with tongue and groove cement fiberboard. This high density alternative to chipboard adds mass that helps block out airborne sound.
  4. Lay a resilient layer of MuteMat OSF 750-10. This is effective at eliminating noise transmission from impact noise like footsteps.
  5. Install a perimeter flanking band to act as a buffer, one that reduces flanking transmission by creating a barrier between floor and wall.
  6. Lay your desired flooring on top and enjoy peace and quiet!

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.

MuteMat 2 Premium Pro Calculator

Use our handy calculator to see what soundproofing products your project will require. Don’t forget to unfold the ‘more info’ tab below to learn how to use this calculator.

Once you have your calculator results you can add all the products to your basket using the button below. You will have to manually input the results from the calculator. We know this is not ideal and we are looking into developing a solution for this.

  • 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.

Questions

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.

Acoustic tests made on a 140mm concrete slab yield a reduction figure of ∆Lw 23dB, which for the majority of cases would yield the acoustic performance required across the board for both conversions and new builds regarding impact sound insulation. If you are looking to specify for an existing concrete structure we would recommend carrying out an acoustic test prior to gather results of both airborne and impact performance to see what requires achieving. With specifications require planning approval or other where a structure has not been built, we can create digital representations of acoustic partitions to see what guide of results you would expect in block and beam, pre-cast and cast in-situ concrete builds.

It would often be accompanied with our MuteClip® soundproof ceiling systems to increase performance for airborne noise and any impact noise issues that are found to be high, and for reducing structural vibration being found at the ceiling level.

We would recommend carrying out the same processes as above due to the acoustic requirements set out by the Scottish Building Regulations being much higher for both airborne and impact in new builds and conversions. It would most likely be required to implement a soundproof ceiling below to meet both the impact and airborne reduction values.

Far larger machinery that requires a fixing in to the flooring, the MuteMat® OSF 750-10 would not fair well as there would be multiple points of contact made to where vibration will travel in to. Lighter weight machinery and other equipment that can be set on top of MuteMat® OSF 750-10 would fair better in mitigating structural borne vibration.

If the structure and its plant machinery are yet to be installed – you would be best to look at using a floating screed construction with our MuteMat® USP range to gain the best separation possible.

If a the room you are looking to build or convert shares a concrete foundation or is in close proximity to other structures – MuteMat® OSF 750-10 would be a great addition to reduce impact noise from instrumentation and helping to decouple amplifiers and subwoofers from creating structural borne vibration – without any floor soundproofing you run the risk of these issues running under the wall soundproofing. When soundproofing cinema rooms or audio studios from above, it would be best to couple with a ceiling system underneath to best mitigate noise issues – airborne noise may not be sufficiently reduce with the concrete mass alone.
