Innovation built on experience

Profloor Acoustic Mat


  1. Profloor Acoustic Mat System can provide impact insulation sound for all types of new or existing floor surfaces. Durable surface provides good protection in high traffic areas.
  2. Most floor coverings such as carpet, Vinyl, Linoleum and heavy duty rubber sheeting bonded with a flexible adhesive and flexible grout can be applied over Profloor Acoustic Mat.+
  3. Can be used to combat condensation in areas of cold
    bridging in floors.
  4. Profloor Acoustic Mat is free from any CFC’s and there are none used during the manufacturing process.
  5. Easy to install, Profloor Acoustic Mat is simply rolled out and bonded onto the surface of the existing floor using Proctor Probond A.M. Adhesive.

Installation Details


1. Preliminaries

The floor laying team are to familiarise themselves with all materials and surfaces to be covered. Where given, manufacturer’s instructions for the use of floor-coverings are to be followed. All floor surfaces are to be suitable for the application of Profloor Acoustic Mat. All floor surfaces are to be prepared to the minimum levels covered by these application guidelines.

2. Surface Preparation

  • Remove any existing loose laid floor coverings ie: carpet, linoleum, sheet vinyl or similar.
  • Existing fixed (glued) floor coverings such as thermo- plastic or ceramic tiles need not be removed providing they are firmly fixed.
  • Renew any damaged or rotten floor boards.
  • Check there are no squeaking or moving floor boards. Screw fix any loose or squeaking floor boards.
  • Clean joints between floor boards of dust and dirt particles.
  • Ensure all fixings, nails, screws etc. are below the top surface of the floor boards.
  • Clean underside edge of skirtings to remove dust and dirt particles.
  • Ensure complete floor surface is dry, firm, free from grease, polish and mould growth.
  • Fill joints between floor boards and bottom edge of skirtings with a suitable mastic.
  • Very absorbent surfaces eg; untreated concrete, non-flooring grade chipboard or old floor boards may require the application of a suitable primer.

3. Application of Profloor Acoustic Mat

Measure and cut Profloor Acoustic Mat to the required size.
Note: The Profloor Acoustic Mat is to be measured and cut so that approximately 25mm is returned up around the skirtings.

If sand/cement screed is being applied over Profloor Acoustic Mat the return should be to the depth of the screed.

  • Roll up cut length with foam side facing out.
  • Apply Probond AM with a suitably notched trowel 2mm x 6mm, or similar tool, to the prepared floor surface to cover an area that can be covered whilst the adhesive remains receptive.
  • Apply the Profloor Acoustic Mat foam side to the wet adhesive and smooth out.
  • Apply Probond AM to remainder of floor area to be covered by cut piece and cover with remainder of Profloor Acoustic Mat and smooth out. Press firmly over the entire area, repeat after 30 minutes.
  • Subsequent pieces of Profloor Acoustic Mat are butt jointed.
  • Continue to lay Profloor Acoustic Mat until complete floor area is covered.
  • Where possible Profloor Acoustic Mat should be left to dry for 24-36 hours.
  • Trim surplus Profloor Acoustic Mat from around skirtings.
  • Cover complete area with final floor covering eg; Vinyl+ (sheet or tiles), carpet or carpet tiles.

Tiling onto proctor mat products

Concrete / Screed subfloor

Prior to applying the mat product in accordance with the relevant User Guide, ensure all surfaces are sufficiently flat, strong & rigid enough to support the tile finish, any defects must be made good. New concrete should be adequately cured / dried out by exposure to air. Any efflorescence, laitance, dirt or other loose materials must be removed. Ensure all edges are butted tight with no gaps or ripples on the matting, let adhesive cure for 6/8 hours. Use a category C2 (flexible) adhesive and CG2 (flexible) grout.

Timber subfloor

The timber subfloor must be rigid, stable and capable of supporting additional load without flexing – if necessary, securely fix plywood ensuring fixings do not protrude. Install the mat product in accordance with the relevant User Guide. Ensure all edges are butted tight with no gaps or ripples on the matting, let adhesive cure for 6/8 hours. Use a category C2 (flexible) adhesive and CG2 (flexible) grout.

Please also consult the manufacturer of the tile, adhesive and grout for further recommendations. All tiling should be installed in accordance with BS 5385. If in any doubt, seek professional advice.
