Silence, Comfort, Warmth & Environmentally Sound:

It’s rare that a company comes along with a product line that’s not only needed and desired by contractors, architects, interior designers, as well as the ‘do-it-yourselfer’ who has a remodeling project that must be done well, but also provides a product line that makes the work easier, quicker and more efficient while at the same time taking the ‘green initiative’ very seriously. But with MP Global Products, that is exactly what businesses and consumers receive.

Founded in 1997 as Midwest Padding LLC, MP Global Products is the manufacturer of extremely high quality synthetic carpet cushion 2011-mainbanner4– with  QuietWalk® becoming a leading upgrade underlayment in the laminate flooring industry. From innovative products that are specifically geared to address issues such as moisture protection, sound deadening and sustainability – MP Global Products are the ONLY products to be used in the design, building and remodeling projects of homes, offices, high-rise apartment complexes and/or condominiums.

Not only is MP Global making the world a quieter and more comfortable place to live, but seeing as that most of the underlayments they manufacture are constructed using pre-consumer recycled fibers, they are growing bigger, better and saving the environment all at the same time. QuietWalk®is but one of the products that lives up to the most rigorous indoor air quality standards. In fact, all of the environmental claims are independently certified, which has more architects and designers specifically asking for and recommending MP Global underlayment products.

Two basic measures are used in the industry to rate the acoustical performance of a floor-ceiling assembly: Sound Transmission Class (STC) and Impact Insulation Class (IIC). From isolating sounds, such as voices, televisions, etc. – to the IIC, which is a measure of the floor to ceiling assembly to isolate impact noise, such as footfalls or furniture moving – QuietWalk® has achieved extremely high scores and has been certified to be among the ‘best of the best.’

The QuietWalk® laminate floor underlayment is truly a revolution in the industry. Smoothing out all concrete/sub floor imperfections, such as protruding pebbles, it also quiets impact sound and floor to ceiling noise. Think about that…being able to reduce sound in multi-level apartment and office units, deadening the ‘noisy neighbors’ where units are extremely close together, and reducing the sound transfer from floors below. Add in to all that the amazing moisture barrier protection when installed over concrete floors, and QuietWalk® becomes the best product that is both easy to install and absolutely perfect for contractors, architects, and that ‘weekend warrior!’ This is truly a sustainable product that’s manufactured with 94% recycled content. Being made in the U.S., QuietWalk® has also earned  LEED points in green house projects

As any contractor will tell you, being able to increase the longevity of the laminate or wood product that’s being installed on top of the underlayer is a must – and QuietWalk® is just the product that will do that extremely well. Although it’s most-definitely an upgrade from poly foam, it doesn’t carry a ‘heavily upgraded’ price. And in recent head-to-head Sound Transmission Loss tests, QuietWalk® has outperformed both cork and rubber in the majority of test band frequencies. The absorbing action of the synthetic fibers, combined with the attached vapor barrier, provides superior moisture protection that’s backed by a Limited Lifetime warranty. 100-square foot size rolls are available for the ‘do-it-yourselfer,’ while contractors are provided with the 360-square foot rolls for easy use and time efficiency.

Want it warm? Well…MP Global thought of that too. An increase in R-value helps keep floors warm in the winter and cool in the 2011-mainbanner5summer. And QuietWalk® is not all they’re providing to the flooring industry. QuietWarmth® is a new and exciting product that combines acoustical and insulating technology with ThermoSoft FiberThermics® heating elements in order to create the perfect heating system.

Electric floor heating is far more efficient than electric baseboard heat and can save homeowners 30 to 50% on their energy bill. ETL approved, these heating elements are non-metallic, and have an inherent safety feature that automatically shuts down the circuit if needed.

Added to the ‘Quick’ line is Insulayment, for glued-down and nailed down hardwood or engineered wood floors; UltraLayer, for ceramic or porcelain tile floors; VersaWalk, a single underlayment with a variety of uses, and more! MP Global Products has a product line that never ends.

From Home Depot and Lowes to Menards and Lumber Liquidators – MP Global products can be found. Easy to install, this certified high-quality flooring saves time and money. Quiet, warmth and comfort is ‘gifted’ to the client, while also providing the added extra bonus of staying on the ‘green’ side of things while you work.
