Pro-Tek - underlay
PRO-TEK WPC presents a new acoustic flooring option suitable for residential and commercial areas. ‘Combining
sthetic and performance benefits, the engineered vinyl designs feature an attached IXPE premium foam underlay, which provides impact sound performance up to 24db,’ says the company. ‘Other benefits include water and slip resistance – along with fast installation facilitated by the board’s integral construction.’
Available in 40 authentic wood and tile-effects, the designs combine traditional LVT wear-layers with a waterproof core and the acoustic underlay.
‘Onsite, this reduces the amount of floor preparation required and speeds installation. It also contributes to the floor’s robustness, eliminating subfloor distortion or ‘telegraphing’. The floors’ acoustic benefits make it suitable for upper-floor installation – including apartment blocks and offices - where step noise can be an issue. The designs can also be laid over wet underfloor heating systems.’
Within the range, PRO-TEK WPC wood-effects are divided into four distinct collections - Excel, Essential, Distressed and Excel Long Plank – each replicating the grain and texture of real timber.
‘The Excel Tile Collection includes a further series of slate, travertine and marble-effects,’ says the company. ‘Materials used are phthalate-free and 100% recyclable – and all designs are offered with matching accessories.’
