  • A Floating Floor is a floor that does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor. The term floating floor refers to the installation method, but is often used synonymously with laminate flooring in a domestic context.
  • not nailed or glued down, but usually interlocking.
  • (“Floating” Floors) Floating floors look like hardwood but are sheets bound together with a thin layer of foam attached to the under-side to serve as a cushion.  The surface flexes when stepped on.

Auralex UBFF Acoustic U-Boat Floor Floater
Auralex UBFF Acoustic U-Boat Floor Floater
Auralex UBFF U-Boats are among the industry’s most affordable solutions for floating floor installations. Made of a specially-formulated rubber U-shaped channel, U-Boats are used to support framing members and isolate them from the surrounding structure. With the help of U-Boats, a floated room features improved transmission loss (isolation) and low frequency definition. It’s easy to figure how many U-Boats to underlay: just multiply the total square footage of the area you want to float by two thirds; the resulting number gives you the approximate amount of U-Boats you’ll need. U-Boats are the industry’s most affordable floating solution and are much easier to use than those exorbitant “pucks” that have been used in the past. To get the biggest benefit from U-Boats, install your joists 12″ o.c. instead of 16″ o.c. & use a U-Boat every 12″ or so.

And now seems like an appropriate time to go for coffee. Engineered cork will be floated overtop this insulated sub-floor. The hardboard shims provide a 1/4 inch expansion gap all around. The gap will eventually be covered by baseboard after the floor is laid. The 7/16 inch cork floor and foam underlay will provide a combined total floor insulation of R-5. Already this floor passes the bare-foot test when compared to the bare concrete.

Yes! The flooring made it through the snow on Tuesday and the builder got in this morning and started work. The green is underlay.
