Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ – Gypsum Concrete Underlayment
With the pairing of gypsum underlayment and sound control mats, FIIC and IIC are used to determine the insulation of the material. IIC is Impact Insulation Class and is used to determine the level of acoustic insulation in a laboratory test. FIIC stands for Field Impact Insulation Class and is essentially the more accurate, on-site test with the sound control mats and underlayment together. The recommended FIIC should be around 55. Higher FIIC or IIC means that the impact noises in a building won’t be as noticeable.
Before working with Southern Floor Systems, it’s important to know just what services we offer. The four levels of flooring are: joists, subfloor, underlayment, and the floor covering. In the gypsum concrete section, we offer the underlayment application specifically.
- Joists – Wood foundation and frame for the flooring
- Subfloor – Structural layer of plywood that goes beneath the underlayment
- Underlayment – Smooth, flat, and sturdy surface layer for flooring.
- Floor Covering – Topmost layer consisting of carpet, tile, vinyl, and other flooring options
Since underlayment protects your floors from mold, mildew, and moisture and provides a strong, smooth structure, it’s one of the most important parts of your flooring. It can also help increase fire and sound resistance in any structure.
Sound control mats offer an extra layer that works to absorb vibrations that cause noises. By dampening the vibrations, the sound won’t travel as far. Our mats at Southern Floor Systems work to prevent unnecessary noises in multifamily and commercial buildings as a result of the sound control mat and underlayment pairings.
