Being a supplier of oak flooring, we are always looking into ways to improve our service for you. Therefore it seems only fitting that we look into ways in which you can enjoy all the comforts of life with your oak flooring
One of the key factors of modern day life is ensuring that your home is properly insulated.
This is where we come in with this SilentWool: Floor Sheep Wool Insulation/Underlay.
The 3mm thick sheep wool cushions the impact between the finished surface, of solid, semi-solid or laminate wooden floors and the concrete or OSB board sub floor.
The layer of wool acts as a way of removing contact between the two hard surfaces by creating an intermediate layer. This layer absorbs the vibrations.
This product is completely a natural product - the wool from our sheep even gets sent to them!

Before installation, the subfloor should be checked to ensure that it is both clean and dry.
When installing onto a concrete floor, ensure that the surface is even and free from imperfections that could damage the floor being installed.
The SilentWool:Floor will unroll with the moisture layer on top (where fitted) by default. At the walls, the edges of the insulation should be taken up the wall by 2cm to avoid sound bridging.
Any obstacles can be cut around using a measuring tape and marking pen for accuracy
Side by side sheets should be joined using sticky tape and not overlapped to avoid an uneven finish.
The flooring can then be installed over the top
Once complete the insulation which overlapping the floor edges can be folded behind itself to further insulate from the walls
