Contractors installing a variety of hard surface flooring in new homes, condos, multi-family housing, and hospitality settings can now stock the jobsite with one “universal” underlayment, VersaWalk™ that offers superior performance under nail-down or glue-down wood, floating laminate, and engineered wood. Float it, nail it, or glue it!
Odorless and non-allergenic, VersaWalk is composed of at least 90% post-industrial/pre-consumer textile fibers, scrap material otherwise destined for landfill.
Randomly air-laid filaments create a capillary effect to cushion the floor, dampen ambient sound, and absorb impact sound. VersaWalk both suppresses noise within the room and inhibits the transfer of noise into rooms below.
VersaWalk also adds an R-Value of 0.50 to the floor system, creating a thermal break to the flooring assembly that helps keep floors warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
VersaWalk also features a very effective Moisture Management System. The attached 3 mil moisture barrier protects wood and laminate floors from harmful moisture. Provided the source of water such as a leak is stopped, VersaWalk’s absorbent padding will wick water and disperse it throughout the pad until it eventually evaporates or escapes through the subfloor.
Available in 3′ width 100 sq. ft. rolls, VersaWalk is suitable for residential and commercial use over most types of industry approved new and existing substrates including concrete, ¾” plywood and OSB and radiant heated floors operating below 85 degrees F. VersaWalk carries a Transferable Lifetime Warranty.
