Product overview.

Where is it used?

  • Under any type of engineered, floating or laminate timber flooring.
  • On top of concrete screeds/slabs or over joists
  • As a cushioning layer under the Lithotherm underfloor heating tiles.

How is it used?

  • On floor joists, the boards can be simply laid on top of the joists and glued or stapled in position.
  • Make sure that there are no gaps between the UdiSTEP boards for maximum acoustic absorption.
  • When laying on insulated solid floor slabs, ensure the surface is clean and dry and has no lumps in it. UdiSTEP boards can be simply laid directly on to the slab.
  • They should be pressed up close to each other and there is no need to leave a gap around the perimeter for expansion.
  • If the slab isn’t insulated then lay insulation, such as UdiTHERM, prior to the UdiSTEP, ensuring the insulation has the correct compressive strength.
Technical Details

How much will you need?

  • Each UdiSTEP 8mm wood fibre underlay board is 1150 x 750mm or 0.8625m² per board. Allow 5% for waste, depending on the complexity of the area to be covered.

What is their thermal conductivity?

  • The UdiSTEP boards do offer some insulation although as they are only 8mm thick this will be limited. The thermal conductivity of the board is 0.049 W/mK and they have a density of 230 kg/m³.

Material in action.

Here you can see an attic space which is having the UdiSTEP boards placed over the ply flooring (you might need to look closely to see it!). This is exactly where to use this type of product as it absorbs impact noise from walking on hard floors so well.
