All-natural acoustic Wood Fiber Underlayment for floating LVT, laminate, engineered and hardwood floors
It is a popular product in Europe and has decades of history, in both residential and commercial applications.
Wood fiber has been utilized to manufacture underlayment for wood floors for more than 50 years worldwide, and by STEICO for more than 30 years.
The popularity of wood fiber-based materials emerges from decades of experience in innovative engineering using natural properties of wood and its high-quality insulation properties, vapor open “breathing” quality, extreme durability, and convenience of installation.
Wood fiber materials have very high heat storage capacity, low thermal conductivity, and great sound insulation properties on minimum thicknesses. It makes wood fiber-based insulating materials economically effective and long-lasting investments for a comfortable and quiet indoor environment.
Wood fiber insulation is an innovative, safe, natural, and high performing alternative to many synthetic insulation options currently on the market.
Enjoy quality floor protection designed by nature
Save time and effort
Experience easy, fast and comfortable installation.
To cut unwanted material off, or to cut the material to overcome pipes or corners, there is no need for any complicated cutting tools.
All the installer needs is a simple commonly available sharp object such as a nail, a knife, a ruler, a screwdriver, or any sharp object available in any home.
Suitable for floating or nail down type of installation. No glue needed;
Small pieces of adhesive tape can be used to connect the wood underlayment sheets with each other;
May be installed in multiple layers;
Benefit from the properties of the natural material
Wood fiber does not lose its shape or qualities over time, making it a great long-term investment
Fibers are bound together by “Lignin”, which is a wood resin that is secreted in the process of milling wood and acts as a binding agent of the wood fibers; a natural glue. This substance is responsible for the durability and sturdiness of the boards.
In order to produce a high-quality product made out of wood fibers, a very precise proportion of Lignin and length of the fibers is required. Only Pine and Spruce are suitable to be utilized in the production of these products.
Light and easy to handle;
Excellent insulation for healthy living – Excellent sound protection;
Only wood fibers! No VOC, no formaldehyde, no glue, no toxic emissions;
Compensates on minor unevenness, easy leveling, comes in two thicknesses;
High compression strength for no squeaking and click-lock system protection;
Unique Vapor Open System – it is a breathable material;
Made in Europe
Quality sound control
The high density of the wood fiber natural insulation means that it is also very effective at reducing both airborne sound like talking, music, traffic noise, and impact sound such as footstep, moving furniture, rain noise through walls, floors, etc.
High compression strength
Ability to hold pressure and not being “foamy”, ensures that floor would not squeak at the joints. Underlayment should be solid and flexible rather than soft and elastic. It prevents “floating” and “springy” effect when walking, keeps the floors hard and sturdy under your feet. It also protects locks from breaking and prolongs life of your wood floor.
Compensates on minor unevenness in the concrete
Being somewhat flexible, but not soft, the Underlayment “coats” the bulges in the concrete on it’s bottom layer, remaining hard and sturdy on it’s top. Speed and ease up your installation process.
Installation that meets your needs
Implement solutions that work best for you. May be installed in two or more layers to raise up the level (if needed) or used as an additional sound insulation for walls or ceiling. Ideal for use with underfloor radiant heating systems.
Incredible sound insulating properties and air quality regulation
The wood fibers, like natural hair and wool, are hollow inside, which allows the internal capillaries to conduct water and air through the fibers. This process is responsible for the incredible heat and sound insulating properties of wood fiber materials as well as the Water Vapor Open feature. it is a “breathable material” that allows airflow to circulate.
It can retain moisture to up to 20%-25% of its mass. While the retention of moisture occurs, the fibrous material doesn’t lose its thermo-physical properties and sound insulating qualities throughout the process.
It can adapt to changing moisture levels in the air in the space where it is installed. It also works as a natural indoor microclimate regulator in those spaces, due to its capability to absorbs excess moisture from the air, then releases it back when the air is dry. This process minimizes the possibility of stale smells by preventing conditions for mold and mildew growth under the flooring surfaces.

Convenient weight and size!
Easy to store and work with. Can be installed by sections. Each package is 90 sqft, 15 sheets, 2×3′.
Increased room comfort: Room comfort is enhanced by The High-performance sound control and acoustic improving properties of the underlayment.
Highest rated sound proofing: US tested and certified after passing the strictest acoustic tests (6” concrete slab without ceiling assembly) which guarantees optimal sound proofing.
Enhances safety: Absence of VOC and other poisonous emissions makes the living space safer and more valuable. Natural product made in EU of pure wood fiber material without any glue additives. Easy to handle and install using commonly available household tools.
Squeak-free floor: High compression strength protects the “click-lock” system of floors, ensures that the floor will not squeak, prevents “springy” effect when walking and increase floor longevity.
Natural microclimate regulator: “Vapor Open” technology prevents conditions for mold growth under the floor. Being a natural and porous material, it can absorb 20% of its weight in water and thus prevent a minor leak from spreading.
