Acoustical Flooring Underlayment for Laminate & Hardwood Floors
- Perfect for all laminate and floating wood floors, even with pre-attached padding
- Protects floors from water with built-in DriWick Technology
- Reduces unwanted noise and lifetime anti-crush support
Superior Sound Reduction
Recycled fibers absorb sound and keep it from traveling to other rooms. Makes click-together floating floors sound solid underfoot.
Dri-Wick technology allows installation over concrete to “breathe” - managing vapors from becoming bulk moisture. The attached vapor barrier protects the overlying floors from harmful moisture.
Dense recycled fiber structure supports the click-together mechanism and will uphold its supportive configuration under the consistent traffic of the overlying floor.
Smoothing Out Imperfections
Firm and supportive but flexible enough to form around subfloor surface roughness, helps to cut down on extra subfloor surface prepping time.
Provides additional comfort to the entire home during seasonal temperature changes.
Approved for In-Floor Heating Systems
Allows heat to permeate evenly while helping to protect the floor covering material from thermal shock.
Made From Recycled Material
A patented manufacturing process repurposes post-industrial and pre/post-consumer materials into high-performance underlayment.
Certified Clean and Safe Indoor Air Quality
No VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) or off-gassing from materials.
An ideal upgrade from 2-in-1 polyethylene or polystyrene products and is less costly than most frothed foam, cork or rubber underlayment with similar sound numbers.
Can be used with a variety of floating floor types.

The difference between QuietWalk and QuietWalk Plus is the attached film. QuietWalk Plus has a specialized film designed to accept nails and adhesives so it works with floating, nail-down, and glue-down installation methods of laminate and wood floors. QuietWalk is approved for floating wood and laminate only.
QuietWalk is not approved for use with luxury vinyl products. We recommend QuietWalk Luxury Vinyl for this application.
That is not an intended application, but there should be no issue to use QuietWalk under an area rug.
QuietWalk has only been tested and approved for use over a substrate, below a floating laminate or wood floor. We have not tested it for use between layers of plywood and cannot speak to the suitability.
QuietWalk is approved for a concrete subfloor under laminate flooring and has an attached vapor barrier. You shouldn’t need an additional vapor barrier unless the moisture vapor emissions of your slab exceed 5lbs/1000sf/24hrs.
All of the underlayments in our QuietWalk family of products would be excellent in this application. They are all approved for use over concrete and under laminate flooring.
QuietWalk is approved for floating applications only. QuietWalk Plus can be installed in a double glued application with engineered wood.
QuietWalk can be used below a floating engineered hardwood floor. If you are planning on stapling your engineered wood floor, you would need to use QuietWalk Plus.
The QuietWalk family of products is GreenGuard Gold Certified to be extremely low in VOC’s and chemical emissions.
QuietWalk will absolutely help with that. It has an R-value of 0.58, which adds thermal insulation and keeps your floors from feeling as cold to the touch.
Easy to install underlayment
Helps with sound
First time using this product and it seems to dampened the sound. It was used on a second floor with no insulation in the first floor. Be careful moving around on this when laying your floor as it tears easy. Adds some cushioning to the floor too.
