Silencer™ Luxury Vinyl Tile
Acoustical Underlayment
Silencer LVT Silencer LVT™ Acoustical underlayment is suitable for all glue down and floating LVT, and vinyl plank flooring installations. Offers the best support, moisture protection and sound absorption for your floors.
  • Made with high-density polyurethane foam
  • Reduces floor noise by providing excellent sound absorption
  • Exceeds Air Quality and Flammability standards
  • 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly
  • Contains Ultra-Fresh® anti microbial treatment
  • Quick and easy installation
  • Eliminates minor subfloor imperfections
  • Adds thermal value and suitable for use with radiant heat flooring

The Silencer LVT™ maintains the beauty of your floor like nothing else.
The Silencer LVT™ underlayment can stand up to the pressure.

ADVANTAGES
  • Silencer LVT™ is made with high-density polyurethane foam using rapidly renewable resources (soybean polyols and vegetable oils)
  • Suitable for floating, glue down, LVT and vinyl plank flooring.
  • New revolutionary moisture barrier film for the best bond strength, durability and moisture protection up to 7 lbs. of pressure. In geographic areas where concrete subfloors are subject to excessive moisture, a calcium chloride moisture test is required. Vapor emission readings in excess of 7 lbs. per 1,000 square feet in 24 hrs. will require additional protection such as concrete sealant or polyethylene sheeting.
  • Contains Ultra-Fresh®, an antimicrobial protection that resists mold and mildew
  • Crushpruf™ technology resists indentation that enables your floors to perform to its fullest potential and last a lifetime
  • Eliminates minor subfloor imperfections
  • Offers the industry's best limited lifetime warranty
  • Suitable for radiant heat flooring systems
APPROVED SUBSTRATES
  • Dry, completely cured concrete (at least 14 days old with HVAC operating)
  • 3/4" interior plywood, OSB flooring, gypsum board, gypcrete
  • Waterproofing and crack-isolation membranes
  • Cement backer units
  • Existing vinyl, wood, and laminate floors
FLOOR PREPARATION
  • Subfloor should be clean and dry
  • Follow the wood manufacturer's installation instructions for any additional preparation
QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION
cuts with a knife
  1. Install Silencer LVT™ with film UP on subfloor
  2. For floating installations, roll out underlayment next to wall. Roll out next row in same manner butting underlayment close to first row (do not overlap). Seal the seams with a moisture resistant tape. Floating vinyl planks must be a minimum thickness of 4mm.
    For double glue installations, use an acrylic or pressure-sensitive adhesive (based on the adhesive manufacturer's requirement) with a 1/16" trowel on the subfloor. Roll out underlayment next to wall. Roll out next row in same manner butting underlayment close to first row (do not overlap). Roll with a 75 – 100 lb. roller to smooth out any air pockets and to secure a good bond to the adhesive.
  3. Install flooring according to the vinyl manufacturer's installation instructions
