Noisestop Mat is a durable recycled product developed to reduce impact noise through floors. Use the soundproof rolls below virtually any type of floor finish including, wood, laminates and floor tiles. The mats are a compound of cork and rubber granules, this combination of materials ensures the Noisestop Mat is a cost effective method of soundproofing concrete and wooden floor structures. Suitable for use on new build and conversion projects that have to comply with Part E Building Regulations, use Isobond adhesive to secure the mats to the floor, in accordance with part E regulations for flooring. Ease of installation also makes this a great choice for home owners as part of a DIY floor soundproofing solution when you want to reduce the sound of movement from the floor above.

The acoustic matting can be installed over timber and concrete floors. Once the mats have been fitted the floor finish can be laid directly over the top. Alternatively specialist underlays can be laid directly over the top if they are required for the type of floor being installed. Use Isobond adhesive to secure the mats to the sub-floor or to the resilient layers if required.
- Install flanking band treatment to the perimeter of the rooms before you begin. Isolation tape should be used around the perimeter of the room, this will reduce flanking noise transferring into the wall.
- Roll out the Noisestop Mats perpendicular to the direction of your floor finish.
- Trim any excess with a sharp knife.
- Use a heavy duty masking tape to secure the edges and joints of the mats to prevent them from moving.
- If the underlay requires gluing down which you will have to do if your project is a conversion or new build use a floor grade adhesive applied with a notched trowel. Ensure enough time for the adhesive to set before you begin laying the finished floor.
- If you are installing a floating floor of chipboard or cement board over the underlay glue the boards together and not to the mat.
- If the flooring needs fixing to the underlay you should avoid nails or screws and adhere the flooring to the underlay.
- Always check the suitability of the adhesive before applying it across the whole floor area.
- Grouted flooring materials should be installed in a thin or thick set mortar bed applied directly over the matting. We do not recommend installing tiles smaller than 100mm x 100mm in this way. A secondary resilient layer should be adhered to the mats first.
