How do Floor Insulators Work?

When you have run out of options or simply haven’t even begun to figure out why it’s so noisy within your home, the easiest place to start is usually the floors.

In a floor there are five primary layers, like the Acoustic Experts write on Commercial Acoustics’ website. The layers are the following:


-Top floor (the decorative part to the eye)

-Impact layer (the acoustic layer responsible for sealing noise)

-Substrate floor




The way that these work together helps ensure a quiet environment free of squeaks or drum like sounds when you’re walking around.

The thing that makes your floor as quiet as possible, though, is the impact layer. It can be something simple like a cork padding or carpeting cushions, but it can also be something high quality like the Floor Blokker.



The Floor Blokker is a highly engineered sound absorbing material that is designed to be placed underneath the top flooring. Once installed the Floor Blokker reduces noise by up to 75% and event aids in mold prevention. This product can be used toward any and all flooring types whether it is tile, hardwood, carpet, laminate, or gypsum concrete. Uses for this specific product are usually hotels, music studios, home theaters, conference rooms and bedrooms. One of the best parts about it is that the Floor Blokker is made from recycled materials and once you decide that the product has paid its due, then it is again fully recycled.



Another really simple fix that helps with preventing outside noise from coming in is the LowBlokk Door Seal. If your door is already a perfect fit within the door frame, then this is for you. This sound blocking product was designed not only as a noise blocker but also a thermal performance booster. The air tight fit allows minimal to no airflow from underneath the door. The installation time is less than 30 minutes and you can also order an adjustable door seal which allows you to create the environment that you want precisely to your needs and wants.
