AngelStep® GOLD8

universal acoustic underlay

Acoustica’s best performing flooring underlay range, AngelStep is the top choice for discerning residential and commercial developments where maximum impact noise control and sound absorption is needed.

Available in different variations to suit flooring substrates and materials, AngelStep® features unique patented technology that combines a sound absorber with impact and vibration damping to consistently achieve up to the highest 6-star acoustic rating dependent on installation.

AngelStep® GOLD8 is a universal acoustic underlay optimised for all types of floors from timber to bamboo, carpet, parquetry, cork and vinyl. Underfloor heating compatible, AngelStep® GOLD8 combines a high-density sound absorber and cross-linked microcellular foam for maximum performance.

Dependent on the floor finish, Acoustica will advise if an intermediate layer such as plywood or fibrous cement substrate will need to be installed.
