Key Benefits & Features:
The Acoustic Carpet Underlayment is an important part of a boat's sound reduction package. This easy to install product can be used at any point in the insulation
Carpet underlayment is effective as a primary treatment for living areas of the boat, such as solons or staterooms where flooring is the dominant source of moise in situations where it is difficult to install proper engine room insulation. Underlayment products consist of a foam layer supporting an acoustic vinyl barrier.
The foam layer acts to decouple the mass layer from the floor vibrations, creating an effective barrier against noise radiating from the floor due to structureborne or airborne sources of noise excitation.
Carpet underlayment is also very effective as part of a full insulation package. In cases where greater attenuation levels are required, carpet underlayment will improve upon the engine room insulation system. Not only will the carpet underlayment add a second decoupled mass, but it will also seal areas such as hatches where leakage can take place.
