Versatile Eco-friendly VersaWalk Acoustic Underlayment Can Do 3 Installations with One SKU: Float It, Nail It, or Glue It
Norfolk, Neb. — March 14, 2015 — Contractors installing a variety of hard surface flooring in hospitality settings can now stock the job site with one "universal" underlayment, VersaWalk, which offers superior performance under nail-down or glue-down wood, floating laminate, and engineered wood. Float it, nail it, or glue it.
Odorless and non-allergenic, VersaWalk, made by MP Global Products, is composed of at least 90 percent post-industrial/pre-consumer textile fibers — scrap material otherwise destined for landfills.
Randomly air-laid filaments create a capillary effect to cushion the floor, dampen ambient sound, and absorb impact sound. VersaWalk both suppresses noise within the room and inhibits the transfer of noise into rooms below.
VersaWalk also adds an R-Value of 0.50 to the floor system, creating a thermal break to the flooring assembly that helps keep floors warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
VersaWalk also features a very effective moisture management system. The attached 3-mil moisture barrier protects wood and laminate floors from harmful moisture. Provided the source of water such as a leak is stopped, VersaWalk's absorbent padding will wick water and disperse it throughout the pad until it eventually evaporates or escapes through the subfloor.
Available in 3-foot wide, 100-square-foot rolls, VersaWalk is suitable for commercial use over most types of industry-approved new and existing substrates including concrete, ¾-inch plywood and OSB, and radiant-heated floors operating below 85 degrees F. VersaWalk carries a transferable lifetime warranty.
Headquartered in Norfolk, Neb., MP Global Products LLC is an innovator and leader in the manufacture of high performing, earth-friendly acoustic floor underlayment. For more information, visit www.quietwalk.com.
