SONOpro is a high-performance underlay membrane designed to absorb impact noise under concrete screed and self-levelling floor systems. (e.g. 1.5″ screed in wooden frame constructions).
Composed of an impact noise-absorbing acoustic felt combined with a high-grade polyethylene film, SONOpro prevents rapid water evaporation and allows optimum curing time for concrete.
SONOpro permits decoupling of the floor from the structure to create a continuous seal.
SONOleed is a high-performance acoustic membrane designed to absorb impact noise for ceramic flooring.
SONOleed meets the most stringent requirements of the Robinson Test for ceramic floors, and is the perfect underlayment to increase soundproofing levels.
SONOvib is a multifunctional acoustic membrane designed to absorb impact noise for vinyl, engineered hardwood (glued-down systems) and carpet flooring.
SONOvib is part of a new generation of eco-friendly, high-performance membranes, and is made from 100% from recycled polyester. SONOvib is very easy to install and is the perfect underlayment to increase soundproofing levels.
When soundproofing your basement rental from the rest of your home, take note that flanking noise (from along the areas floor and wall meet) need to be sealed. Sound can travel in these areas to all parts of your home.
When soundproofing your basement, remember to take into account the impact sound and vibration of foot traffic. We provide acoustic underlays that will solve this issue.
I have an unfinished basement and would like to create a basement apartment rental. Should I consider soundproofing the space or wait until noise is an issue?
It is best to incorporate soundproofing into your original design. The cost of soundproofing at the construction phase is considerably more effective and will end up costing you much less. We have solutions for both new construction and renovations.
I have a finished, but not soundproofed basement that my in-laws are moving in to. Are there options to improve the soundproofing?
Yes, the REFLEXOR membrane is the easiest, most effective way to increase the soundproofing in your basement.
How does sound travel between rooms?
Sound transmission paths between two units include both direct transmission through the separating assembly (ex: sound leaks or direct transmission through materials) and flanking transmission through adjacent wall and floor assemblies. It’s crucial to ensure there are no openings between two rooms (seal all openings) and to use materials with different densities to achieve the best soundproofing performance possible.
Are wood furring strips equivalent to resilient channels?
No. Wood furring strips do not have sound deadening properties. Resilient channels must be used as recommended in the tested assemblies, and as per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
