A thin black recycled resilient rubber mat designed to reduce impact noise transmission when used as an underlay beneath Lino vinyl or Laminate flooring.
My neighbour downstairs was complaining about noise from my flat. It had been an ongoing problem. A timber floor had been laid badly on top of the existing ply. It creaked, the ply creaked and the impact noise of anything dropped on the floor could be heard through the 150mm concrete slab below, waking up the occupant below. The boards were taken up, the ply re-screwed, a layer of linoroll5 laid above, topped with lino. Problem solved. That was three years ago and there have been no complaints since. The Linoroll5 was easy to lay. We have a policy commitment to sustainable materials in the block, so we were very pleased this could all be done with recycled rubber and without having to resort to carpeting.

To Treat Impact
Ensure all floorboards are securely fixed and do not squeak, secure with screws if necessary. Use our Acoustic Sealant to seal between the joists and around the floors perimeter to eliminate noise leakage.
Open the roll and lay from wall to wall. Butt joint sections where necessary. Do not overlap.
Then lay your chosen floor covering over the top as normal. Glue as necessary.
To Treat for Impact Noise and Airborne Noise
Infill in the cavity with
Mineral Wool then lay the floorboards back down. Use our Acoustic Sealant to
seal between the joists and around the floors perimeter.
Lay two layers of our Soundproofing
Mat directly on top of the floorboards. Make sure the second
layer is laid in the opposite direction to the first layer. Open the
(Syl) Linoroll 5 and lay from wall to wall. Use our Special Spray Adhesive
to adhere the roll to the Soundproofing
mats and butt joint sections where necessary. Do not overlap. Glue a layer of hardboard on top of the Linoroll then lay your Lino floor on top.
For enhance results, use our Acoustic Quilt instead of the normal 100mm of AMW100 Acoustic Mineral Wool.
