Acoustica floor underlay is available in different variations to suit flooring substrates and materials. AngelStep® features unique patented technology that combines a sound absorber with impact and vibration damping to consistently achieve up to the highest 6-star acoustic rating dependent on installation.
AngelStep® GOLD8 is a universal acoustic underlay optimised for all types of floors from timber to bamboo, carpet, parquetry, cork and vinyl. Underfloor heating compatible, AngelStep® GOLD8 combines a high-density sound absorber and cross-linked microcellular foam for maximum performance. Its aluminium gold facing can be used up or down for a variable underfloor feel. Dependent on the floor finish, Acoustica will advise if an intermediate layer such as plywood or fibrous cement substrate will need to be installed.
To ensure maximum acoustic performance from the AngelStep® range for your project, Acoustica can provide site specific testing and certification, in accordance with International Standard ISO Acoustics.
AngelStep® acoustic underlays have been proven to achieve up to AAAC 6 stars rating which is far greater than the minimum BCA standard of AAAC 2 stars. Acoustica doesn’t just use lab tests to make these claims to promote the performance of the various AngelStep® underlays, they have always used independent acoustic engineers to test the products in ‘real life’ situations, therefore ensuring the claims are correct and certifiable. When the strata criterion requires a AAAC 5 or 6 star rating for the finished floor, an Impact Acoustic Test must always be completed to ensure compliance. When choosing an acoustic underlay, be sure to choose the correct AngelStep® product that not only achieves the highest impact rating but is also suitable for the intended application.
