The best method of soundproofing a floor to stop impact noise is to stop the impact noise at the source. Block and absorb sound before it transfers through the floor structure. The best way of doing this is by using a floor soundproofing underlay. Acoustic mats will reduce the energy generated when an object hits the floor. This type of soundproofing flooring combine mass loaded barrier mats and acoustic grade foams. This combination of materials will block, absorb and reduce noise through all types of floors.
