Need & Performance
Each ooring assembly performs dierently. Add or subtract a component like wallboard, change a structural element from a 2” x10” joist to an open web, add a resilient channel, & the sound performance will change, sometimes drastically. Assemblies are tested for their ability to control sound & are rated with a number, STC for airborne sound, & IIC for structural sound. The higher the number, the better job the assembly does controlling sound. Generally, the mass of the system is a direct indication of how the system will perform. Add mass & improve airborne sound control, with vibration noise isolation is essential with mass playing a lesser role.
What does this mean for your project? It means that the design should incorporate an isolation layer between two heavier elements, like a joist system with a ceiling & a dense topping, like gypsum. Quiet Qurltm creates a sound break or “spring” between two heavier materials. The concept is to oat a nished oor over the suboor, allowing the “spring” of Quiet Qurltm to attenuate (absorb) sound. This MASS/SPRING/MASS construction dramatically lessens the structural sound neighbors hear & is an essential element when installing hard surfaces like wood, tile, vinyl & stone.

Quiet Qurltm Moisture Control
Liquid moisture closed fabric top on QUIET QURL that prevents water from passing through to the joist space.
First true innovation in tangled lament products in 30 years.
Available in all three QUIET QURL Products, 55/025 MC, 60/040 MC and 65/075 MC.
Moisture Vapor open to allow for proper breathing and to prevent trapped water.
Eliminates the “moisture of convenience” in underlayment pour and when used with specic underlayments it lowers the water demand by 30% or 7 gallons in 33 square feet!!
Perimeter Isolation with QUIK STIK
Prevents anking and lls the void to stop airborne and impact noise.
Hi-Tack back with no need for release paper provides a simple seam between the wall and oor.
Allows for taping at and means no mechanical fasteners are required on the job site.
4.0” (10 cm) width that is installed after the Quiet Qurltm sound mat and overlapped in an “L” shape for
added safety in preventing underlayment leaks.
Reinforcement with RWT 040
Allows for thinner underlayment pours
Thin prole means that even in 0.75” (18 mm) applications, no laments will show through to the surface.
The monolament design means that micro cracks will stay in place and provide added uniformity to the underlayment.
Perfect solution in lieu of a crack isolation mat to control reective cracking in ceramic tile applications or vinyl installations.
