The Sound Control Experts

Dura’s high performance acoustical underlayments have superior sound absorption and deadening properties due to their advanced technological design engineered with an open cellular structure made from recycled tire rubber (85% min. content) which decouples sound transmission from one floor to another. In addition, our underlayments will not get compressed over time like other underlayments and therefore lose their acoustical values. Dura acoustical underlayments have been installed in millions of square feet of commercial and residential projects all over the world with a proven track record yielding the highest IIC (Impact Insulation Class) ratings in the market. Whether tested in labs (IIC) or in the field (FIIC), Dura outperforms the competition.
