BRAND NAME: Underlayment
Silent Stride Pad w/ Vapor Retarder (Floating Installation)
Some laminate and floating wood floors have a reputation of creating a "clickey" or hollow sounds when walked on. However, Silent Stride is designed to draw sound in and deaden it, not deflect it. Silent Stride's filaments are randomly air laid, creating a capillary effect to cushion the floor, absorb sound, and help make laminate floors sound more like real wood.
100 sf Roll
Subsurface moisture or sweating from high-humidity on concrete can cause real problems for hardwood and laminate flooring. Silent Stride can absorb over 5 times it's own weight in water without swelling or deterioration, while the vapor retarder keeps water away from your floor.
Silent Stride also contains an EPS-registered antimicrobial technology used to solve "sick building problems" in schools, hospitals, offices and homes. This underlayment comes with a limited lifetime warranty regardless of flooring brand. Adds R-value to chilly floors and Silent Stride is suitable over all types of subfloors.
This underlayment pad also contains a moisture retarder film for use on below-grade or on-grade subfloors.
