Underlayment for Reduced Sound Transmission

GenieMat® RST

Sound Control Underlayment

FROM THE INVENTOR OF THE PATENTED TECHNOLOGY (US 6920723, US RE41945, CA 2398262) FOR RECYCLED RUBBER USED FOR IMPACT SOUND INSULATION, DIRECTLY BELOW FLOOR COVERINGS.

GenieMat RST is a flat, resilient, reduced sound transmission mat made from 94% recycled rubber
content, used directly under hard surface floor finishes and over concrete and wood construction.

It is used when superior sound control is required in multi-family housing, high-rises, or commercial
buildings and protects ceramic tile, porcelain and stone from substrate cracks.

Engineered for direct adhered floor coverings such as tile, stone, wood, and vinyl floor coverings.

Tile – All products rated for minimum of commercial use.

Wood – GenieMat FASadhesives offer superior bonding strength.

Vinyl – One-step method provides superior sound control for resilient floor coverings.

Features and Benefits:
  • Mold, bacteria, fungi, and water resistant
  • Exceeds pass criteria for point load test for crack isolation membrane (ANSI 118.12)
  • Meets requirements for VOC emissions (IAQ test, ASTM D5116
  • Qualifies for LEED® points
  • Floorscore® certified
  • Complete floor covering system warranty available
