Better Sound Quality
Some laminate and floating wood floors have a reputation of creating a clicky or hollow sound when walked on. However, Solid Sound is designed to draw sound in and deaden it, not deflect it.
Solid Sound filaments are randomly air laid creating a capillary affect to cushion the floor, absorb sound, and help make floating floors sound more like fastened wood. SolidWalkTM is concept similar to QuietWalkTM a Mid-West Padding product only better because it has twice the moisture barrier and overlapping lip and tape for installation easy.
Installations Over Normal Concrete
Subsurface moisture or sweating from high-humidity on concrete can cause real problems for laminate or floating wood flooring. Solid Sound can absorb over 5 times its own weight in water without swelling or deterioration, while the vapor barrier keeps water away from your floor.
Since Solid Sound and concrete are both breathable capillary products, moisture levels and evaporation will fluctuate with changing atmospheric conditions and water tables.
