Description - Our 6mm pre-cut rubber underlayment is about a millimeter thicker than our 5mm underlayment, but offers an increased amount of sound absorption comparatively. Our rubber underlayment is the perfect thickness for both commercial and residential flooring projects and provides all the benefits of any other rubber underlayment. You can install this over both concrete and wood and can be loose laid as well as adhered using glue, tape, nails or staples. This flooring underlayment also features an antimicrobial additive which aids in the inhibition of mold and mildew which are properties already associated with rubber. This underlayment also helps reduce the “hollow” or “pingy” sound that you hear with many laminate, hardwood, and engineered wood floors.

How To Install Rubber Underlayment

 

Features

Rubber Underlayment

  • Why rubber underlayment?
 

Rubber underlayment offers superior sound resistance, is versatile and resilient. Comprised of recycled materials, this environmentally friendly product provides cushion underfoot as well as reducing sound transmission and impact sound such as footsteps. Amazingly, a 2mm thick rubber underlayment has similar testing numbers in sound resistance as compared to a 6mm thick cork underlayment.

Do I REALLY need underlay?

  • Yes, most definitely.
 

Underlayment is an amazing invention created by the flooring gods out of necessity. Underlay has an impressive list of benefits, including: adding warmth to your floors so your feet aren’t so cold on new tile flooring, adding comfort and a slight ‘give’ underneath wood or vinyl floors, reduced sound transmission (great for houses with noisy teenagers!), as well as reducing in room step noise. The image to the left is a very simplified example of using underlayment versus not using it, but as you can see the benefits greatly outweigh any reason not to.

Making your house a home

  • Products that work together
 

A favorite for use with hard plastic garage tiles, hardwood flooring and stone floor tiles. Rubber underlayment should never be used with vinyl flooring, VCT, or linoleum flooring as it could potentially stain these materials.

Thickness

  • What does it mean?
 

Underlayment with a thickness of up to 5mm thick are great when it comes to residential or commercial use, with all flooring types. When you get to more than 5mm thick, these are really great for installations where you need to add thickness to match up with an adjoining/existing floor surface.

IIC / STC Ratings

  • What do they mean?
 

IIC stands for Impact Insulation Class, which refers to impact sounds such as shoes hitting the ground, dropping a cell phone, or other scenarios where something it dropped or impacts the floor. STC stands for Sound Transmission Class, which refers to any audible noise (not an impact) such as music playing aloud, a conversation, or a loud television, for example. With both of these ratings systems, the higher the number rating is for the underlayment, the better it will suppress sound, and the quieter a room will be. You may want to pay close attention to these ratings when shopping for underlayment if sound reduction is important to you.

Good for hardwood underlayment
5/5 6mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment
Kent from St. Louis, MO
I bought this rubber underlayment to put under a floating engineered hardwood floor. The underlayment is gypsum concrete. I wanted the best soundproofing I could get for my money because I'm in a 2nd floor condo. I have to admit that I was skeptical because the price was so much lower than competitors, but I had no problems with it. I ordered over the phone and customer service was great!! They said shipping could take 2 weeks, but it arrived in 1. It's actually 6.4mm, which is exactly 1/4". It absorbs sound very well.

The only cons are that the rolls are very heavy and its difficult to cut, but that's to be expected because it's rubber.

Happy customer in Florida
5/5 6mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment
Happy customer in Florida from Florida
I placed the underlayment on top of plywood flooring in a second floor attic/work room newly created out of raw attic space. This room is over the den area of my home so it was a concern that noise from that area would be heard downstairs..including the use a stationery exercise equipment. We mostly followed the instructions on the packaging making it very easy to install. Where we short cut was to lay it out in the air for a period of time before installation. The result is terrific.. The underlayment provides an excellent sound barrier for downstairs and a cushion for working in the room. It did have a distinct..not repulsive..odor for a couple of days and we laughed about partially following the instructions. Working wit the company, i ordered the correct product and the correct amount for the space...creating little waste. I am very pleased.

Under Carpet
5/5 6mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment
Nan K. from Escondido, CA
We purchased the rubber underlayment for under carpet tiles in my home office. The purpose was mostly to add a little height so it would be closer to the adjacent hall wood floor. The very slight added cushioning and insulation is a bonus. I was initially concerned about the strong rubber tire smell but I washed it down with soap and water and aired it outside for two days before my husband easily installed it. With the dense industrial carpet tile that cover it, there is not a hint of odor now.

Great Product -BEST service!
5/5 6mm Pre-Cut Rubber Underlayment
Pat Blevins from Watsonville, California
We recently purchased 1400 sq ft of the 6 mm rubber underlayment to be installed below the carpet and pad of the beach condo above ours in hopes of being able to enjoy some peace and quiet in our condo for the first time in 8 years. The condo upstairs is rented out all year long and because of the two sets of bunk beds has kids running and jumping ALL the time. No fun for us, until this wonderful product did what they said it would do-- reflect vibration from foot "steps" up into the room instead of down into the timbers and our condo. I started to look into the purchase in Jan 2014. The customer service people worked with me throughout the long wait for the owner of the condo above ours to re carpet his condo. Nine months actually elapsed since I made the first contact and they held true to the discount they offered us for the nine months it took to order the product. Luis Montano gave me such excellent and consistent customer service and support far beyond any experience I've received from any other company. Luis is a true asset to Rubber Flooring, Inc. and anyone who is fortunate enough to work with Luis will not be disappointed. Our order had many atypical nuances and he worked with us individualizing the ordering process to accommodate our needs. We worried the product would not arrive in time to coordinate with the carpet installation, but there was no need to worry. The product arrived in just 8 days after ordering. The professional capet installer said the product was very easy to work with and in no way interfered with installing a thick carpet pad and upgraded carpet over the underlayment. The owner of the condo being carpeted was very pleased with the look and solid feel of walking on all three layers. We worried about the odor of the rubber in a rental unit, but there was no need to have worried. The odor quickly dissipated before the carpet installation was complete. I give this experience the highest rating of approval. Luis Montano and his superb customer service, the shipping and handling component and the product doing what it was designed to do, not to mention a very fair price, are the reasons I have rated this company, its product and our overall experience with 5 stars!
