AcoustaMat™ is an innovative product that uses specially engineered recycled rubber underlays to meet the acoustical requirements of all common construction and installation methods. It can be used as excellent, eco-friendly and cost-effective underlay to timbers, ceramic tiles, vinyl flooring, carpets or floor lamination.

For high-rise units, multi-storey townhouses and homes. Suitable for new and old buildings requiring impact sound insulation for the installation of timber, laminate, carpet, plank vinyl/vinyl over Masonite or ceramic floors. Can be installed on timber and concrete sub-bases.
