HIGH DENSITY POLYETHYLENE SUBSTRATE WITH VAPOUR BARRIER FILM
Impact noise in the home?
One of the most effective remedies is SILENT STEP.
SILENT STEP is the underfloor soundproofing made of polyethylene with an integrated vapour barrier.
With its integrated adhesive tape, the layer's continuity is immediate and no further sealing is required.
- Floating floor installation (not glued)
- Applicable under parquet, medium-high quality LVT and laminate flooring
- Suitable in case of underfloor heating
SILENT STEP, which has the functions of an underfloor soundproofing mat, reduces impact noise. It is an acoustic improvement product and a vapour barrier at the same time. It provides good soundproofing and waterproofing because of its chemical and mechanical properties.
The surface polyethylene film prevents the passage of humidity, protecting the floor with an Sd value of more than 75 m. The material, thickness and coating make it suitable for installation with various floating floors.
It is chemically stable and does not contain harmful substances or VOCs.

Supply and installation of substrate made of high density NPE polyethylene with PE film serving as a vapour barrier, type SILENT STEP
- Thickness [mm] : 2
- Water vapour transmission Sd [m] : > 75
Suitable for timber-to-timber installation to create a physical and mechanical separation between the two elements, thus avoiding the transmission of vibrations caused by impact sound. To increase the vibration absorption capacity, it is advisable to install the profile both below and above the timber floor. Install the profile on the upper section of the wall and fix it mechanically with staples every 40/60 cm. Then install the horizontal panel of the floor and repeat the operation.
