Tecsound® Pro | Timber Floor Soundproofing

This system focuses on replacing existing floorboarding with our Versafloor® and using Tecsound to provide an easy to install material to dampen light vibration. Ideal for tightly spaces floors.

  • Airborne: 53dB*
  • Impact: 47dB*
  • 4mm
Add System Components To Cart

The Tecsound Pro system is an ideal solution for those looking to replace their subfloor with a floor soundproofing option, but cannot lose a great deal of space beyond this. This system improves airborne noise while helping to decrease the presence of light vibration and light foot traffic from above. This system combines both Versafloor® 18mm, a cement particle board, mostly a dense mix of concrete and chipboard provides a rigid and heavy board to create a barrier against airborne noise, and Tecsound, a visco-elastic material that reduces vibration and breaks down sound energy by turning it into heat. The full system includes the use of Acoustic Mineral Wool between the joists, at no less than 45kg per m3, and use of Isolation Strips to provide a floating floor function. It is these properties in this system that make it ideal for reducing the light conversation, background levels of footsteps and even the dragging of furniture. 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, and this system is for both homes and workplaces.



  • A slim and robust alternative to standard ply and chipboard subfloor to provide a soundproofing alternative
  • System thickness from structural board 4mm
  • 53dB* for airborne (where a higher number is desired) (details are available on the 'System Performance' tab above).
  • 47dB* for impact (where a lower number is desired) (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


Combining essential soundproofing materials.


  • Versafloor® 18mman incredibly dense, tongue-and-groove cement particle board (with greater mass than ply or standard chipboard to reduce airborne noise).
  • Tecsound - a visco-elastic barrier to help reduce vibration and improve the reduction of airborne noise.
  • Acoustic Mineral Wool 45kg or 60kg per m3 - (essential for reducing resonance between joists, and to minimise sound 'flanking' into other rooms).
  • Isolation Strip P8 - is a deviated, rubbed crumber material to separate from joists (to achieve the best performance against impact and low-frequency noise).

How to install

  • Acoustic Mineral Wool fitted between joists in which it's depth dictates thickness needed, you will want to leave at least a 10mm air gap - DO NOT COMPRESS.
  • Isolation Strips self-adhered to top of joists, make sure these are as dust free as possible.
  • Perimeter detail installed, dependent on your floor finish above this would be Perimeter Flanking Band for hard finishes.
  •  Tongue-and-groove Versafloor® 18mm subfloor installed providing an airtight seal.
  • Tecsound adhered with self-adhesive backing.



Alternatively, we provide Acoustic Installation across the UK to fit all of our systems - they come with a wealth of experience in the field so you can feel comfortable that the right installation methods are being carried out.

All of our systems contain a high level of mass, and if there are any structural concerns, you will want to consult a Structural Engineer to discuss your requirements.

*Our Typical Performance Results and Noise Reduction Guidance are provided to indicate the results that have been achieved in previous tests but are not guaranteed to a specific site as multiple factors can affect this.

*Our guide price includes all acoustic materials and ancillaries required

We endeavour to display the most up to date testing and to manage expectation as best as possible. Please do contact us to discuss your requirements.


Noise Reduction Guidance*

  • Typical levels of conversation
  • Light use of small audio equipment or television sets
  • Light footsteps and vibration 

 helps to replace a current floor boarding with a much denser, higher mass product as Versafloor® 18mm, suited for floor spans no more than 400mm in joist centres - to vastly improve airborne and reduce gaps by having a tongue and groove finish. Tecsound is a vibration damping membrane that helps to improve airborne performance also by having a high mass per m2. So depending on your current floor boarding, you may only see a rise of 4-8mm in total.


Depending on what is currently in place, this system is designed to be as slim line as possible - so we look to improve on background noise levels of conversation and television for example by reducing them further, but for intrusive noise issues something more substantial would need to be in place. Impact and vibration will be reduced a little less so, intrusive noise issues regarding impact would need to implement something more compressible like our MuteMat® 2 or MuteMat® 3.

With limitations on floor height, especially if you are looking to lay a hardened flooring,  would work perfectly for a further reduction of airborne noise and impact noise whilst allowing hard floor finishes to be applied direct.

Versafloor® 18mm 

Versafloor® is a cement impregnated chipboard to which helps vastly improve the mass per square meter which is important for the reduction of airborne noise. It’s mass is much high in comparison to chipboard and ply, both often used as a sub floor construction on joists.

Yes it will, Versafloor® is not flexible and any major deviations in the joist could cause cracking over time - opening gaps for airborne sound to travel through and making the floor potentially unstable.
