10 mm additional System Height

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


Hear the difference.

Play the video to hear the 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.

This combines two core products within a high-performing system. Installing a structural board on top of our Isolation Strip P8 creates a floating floor and then combines that with our MuteMat® OSF 750-10, which is our highest performing and most robust resilient acoustic underlay of our MuteMat® OSF range. This combination of products within a system offers superb airborne and impact results on wooden joists.

  • Easy to install, and can be loose-laid and used with Woven Carpets.
  • Hard floor finishes can also be installed, please see further down for specific details on how to install successfully.
  • System thickness from structural board 10mm
  • Compliant with Part E Building Regulations (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland). (Details are available on the ‘System Performance’ tab above).
  • Be sure to check for ‘Flanking Transmission’ in adjacent surfaces as these can affect acoustic performance.

How to soundproof a floor

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

  1. Install high-density mineral wool in between flooring joists. This will help soundproof against airborne noise travelling 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 suitable chipboard
  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 that acts 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 the peace an 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.

  • 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.

One of the most common issues between neighbours is from to disturbance through noise, this can often lead to a very tense environment and something that is only solved by having the right soundproofing in place, and with cooperation where possible on the outcome. To where impact noise is the main concern, our MuteMat® OSF 750-10 offers a heavy reduction of noise in slim-line solution, offering approximately ∆Lw 23dB reduction taken from a 140mm concrete floor slab, this is over a 75% reduction of noise issues for impact noise.

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.

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 help 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 reduced with the concrete mass alone.

You can find all of our current information on this acoustic over screen and it’s compatibility from the results below with use in conjunction with underfloor heating systems

Thermal Conductivity = 0.113 W/mK

Thermal Resistance = 0.094 m²K/W

Temperature Stability = -35°c to +100°c.

With a 10mm increase it may not require any alterations around the perimeter of the room, but depending on new floor layers some skirting may require moving and doors trimmed to a more suitable height. But, it certainly can be installed retrospectively and is a great option for anyone looking to install new hard floor finishes to replace a carpet perhaps.
