How rubber underlay works
Rubber underlay is a great way to stop sound from travelling through walls and floors. It helps to reduce noise pollution and makes for a much more peaceful and comfortable living environment. Rubber underlay is made up of a soft layer of rubber that is installed between the sub-flooring and the flooring material. It helps to absorb the vibrations that are created when sound travels through floors making it an effective sound-proofing solution for both residential and commercial spaces.
Tackles impact noise
Rubber underlay also helps to reduce impact noise, which is generated when people walk, run, or move furniture. The rubber absorbs the impact energy, which prevents the sound from travelling down through floors. This is especially helpful in multi-story buildings, where the sound can travel through multiple floors and cause annoyance or disruption to other occupants.
Why choose a Rubber Underlay?
Overall, rubber underlay, like the GenieMat RST, is a great way to stop sound from travelling through walls and floors. It helps to reduce noise pollution, impact noise, and provides an effective soundproofing solution for residential and commercial spaces.
