Installing

soundproofing underlay noisestop f7

Noisestop F7

Installation of acoustic underlays can be carried out by anybody that feels they are a competent DIYer. If you don’t want to install the products yourself we would normally recommend a local carpet fitter, if you are already replacing your floors as part of the work your floor fitting company would be able to install your soundproof underlay.

Soundproof underlay can be loose laid over the existing floor, there is no requirement to glue the flooring in place unless the installation is for Part E in which case a floor grade adhesive should be used as stipulated in the 2003 regulations.

Laying a carpet over Noisestop F7

If you are using Noisestop F7 below carpets you should consider whether to use a traditional carpet underlay or not. Gripper rods should be used around the perimeter of the room to hold the carpet in place. If you are going to use the Noisestop F7 with an underlay you should install the perimeter edging strips before the carpet grippers. Secure the edging strips and grippers with tacks or nails.

Installing solid floor finishes over Noisestop F7

Flooring that is less than 15mm thick should be combined with a 6mm ply or MDF sheet to ensure there is no movement of the finished floor. Laminate flooring, engineered flooring should be bonded to the ply or MDF. Flooring that is thicker than 15mm can be laid directly over the mats. Consideration should be given to the possibility of sound transferring from the solid flooring to the walls, use isolation tapes against the wall to prevent flanking noise.

Noisestop F7

Floor soundproofing acoustic underlay mats for domestic and commercial floors

Noisestop Systems F7 is an acoustic underlay that can be used over any floor type. Noisestop F7 is suitable for use in domestic and commercial applications. Reduce impact and airborne noise, conversation and TV noise transferring through timber sub floors. Part E complaint when installed as part of a separating floor construction.

Fitting Noisestop F7

Acoustic underlay mats should be laid in a brick bond pattern on the floor. When you are fitting the mats make sure you don’t leave gaps between them. Ensure the matting is tightly butted together.

Use a Stanley knife or sharp scissors to cut the soundproof matting to fit the shape of your room.

Fitting Noisestop F7 below carpet

Noisestop F7 should be combined with perimeter edging strips around the room if you are using a carpet underlay over the soundproof mat. If you are not using a carpet underlay and grippers you will not need to use the edging strips.

Perimeter strips should be nailed or glued to the floor before you install the gripper rods. The gripper rods are then nailed on to the perimeter strips. The Noisestop F7 is then laid in a brick bond pattern over the floor. Ensure that no gaps are left between the acoustic mats and the perimeter strips and between the acoustic matting sheets.

Fitting Noisestop F7 to stairs

Fitting the Noisestop F7 to the stairs should be combined with perimeter strips. The strips are nailed or glued in pace before the gripper rods are attached. Once you have cut the mats to size they should be glued in pace with a floor grade adhesive.

Complying with Building Regulations

If you are fitting an acoustic underlay in order to comply with Building Regulations you will need to fix the mats to the sub floor with a floor grade adhesive.

There is no requirement to fix this product to the sub floor if you are carrying out any other domestic or commercial applications. Unless you are carrying out work to comply with the Building Regulations you do not need to fix the acoustic underlay to the floor.

Fitting Noisestop F7 in kitchens and bathrooms

When you are installing an acoustic underlay in kitchens and bathrooms the units should not be sat on the matting. To ensure the correct floor heights the units should be sat on ply wood or MDF, this will ensure the same floor height throughout. In kitchens lay the acoustic mats up to the kitchen plinth; lay the underlay below the units to reduce airborne sound transfer. For bathrooms ensure toilets and sinks are raised to ensure the correct floor height.

Please note

We would always recommend that you check with your flooring company to check the suitability of the final floor finish with any acoustic underlay. Due to the number of different floor finishes available it is not always possible to check the suitability of the product with every floor finish.

Can I use Noisestop F7 over any type of floor?

Answer: This acoustic underlay can be laid over any type of sub floor. Use the Noisestop F7 over concrete and timber flooring.

What type of floor finish can I use over the top?

Answer: The most suitable floor finish would be floors that have a carpet finish. Heavier floors like tiled flooring or engineered floors would compress the product, reducing its effectiveness.

Do I need to use a carpet underlay as well?

Answer: We provide these materials as soundproof underlays, not specifically as carpet underlays. you can use the Noisestop F7 directly below your carpet, but we would recommend using a traditional underlay as well. If you do use a carpet underlay with gripper rods you will need the perimeter edge strips below the gripper rods. This will ensure the gripper rods are at the correct height around the perimeter of the room.

Do I need to glue this product to the sub floor?

Answer: If you are carrying out soundproofing to comply with Buyilding Regulations then you will need to fix the flooring. Use a suitable floor grade adhesive to fix the sheets to the floor. If you are carrying out any other floor soundproofing project you do not have to glue the sheets in place.

How easy is the material to cut?

Answer: You wont need any special tools to cut the material to size. A pair of sharp scissors or a stanley knife will be all you will need to cut the material to fit the room.

Does Noisestop F7 comply with Building Regulations?

Answer: Use Noisestop F7 as part of a combination of materials to comply with part 'e'. For timber floors combine with 100mm of DFM acoustic insulation, Soundbreaker Bars and a double boarded ceiling. For concrete flooring use with a suitable ceiling finish either an MF ceiling or similar.

Will this reduce impact and airborne sound?

Answer: The product comprises three layers, an acoustic grade foam sandwiched between two sheets of mass loaded barrier mat. The result of this combination will reduce impact and airborne sound.

Can I use this product with my under floor heating?

Answer: If you are installing your under floor heating system at the same time as the soundproof flooring you should put the heating system over the soundproofing. Soundproof underlays would block and absorb the heat as it tries to pass through the material. The soundproofing would have the same noise reduction below the heating system. We would recommend you speak to the floor heating company before any work commences
