Provides the top standard for Association of Australian Acoustical Consultants (ACCC) ratings (6-star).
Angelstep® 48P & 484P allows our clients to have premium floor sound barriers with minimal underlay height.
This includes an impact isolation and vibration damping and sound absorber combined with an airborne sound barrier - giving ultimate absorption for your needs.
AngelStep® 48P acoustic underlay is designed for installation over concrete slab or light timber joists.
AngelStep® 484P acoustic underlay is specifically designed for properties which use a timber substrate, offering exceptional reduction of both airborne and impact noise.
Floor underlay for:
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) minimum impact standard for a floor in a class 2 or 3 building is to be no more than Ln,w+C1≤62. However, the reality is that this is in most cases unacceptable to occupants and can result in the need for costly reparation works. In response the Association of Australian Acoustic Consultants (AAAC) has developed the star rating system to rank the acoustical quality of apartments and provide guidance in the design and construction process.
AngelStep® with an impact sound pressure level on a concrete substrate of no more than Ln,w+C1 of 40, exceeds the BCA requirements by 22 points.

Scores and Test Results
The product 48P has been independently tested by Marshall Day Acoustics; document 002 2007125 10/12/2015 to achieve a result Lnt,w 40 - equivalent to AAAC rating 6 stars.
Untreated timber joist flooring systems that separate individual tenancies exhibit very poor impact isolation performance.
It is estimated that for the untreated floor system the L’nT,w would be in the region of 75 with a correction of nominally 0, resulting in L’nT,w + CI.of 75.
This level of performance would not comply with the current Building Code of Australia requirements of L’nT,w + CI of 62.
The installation of the AngelStep® 484P underlay has resulted in a significant improvement in impact isolation between tenancies (an improvement of ≈ 17 to 19 dBA).
Various floor impact noise tests of the AngelStep® acoustic underlays have been conducted under field conditions on masonry/concrete floor system.
In the case above, AngelStep® 48P - 8mm under ceramic tiles on a 6mm FC underlay was the best performing system in terms of floor impact noise improvement compared to the base floor installation, with improvements of up to 24 points in the L’nT,w rating.
Independent tests for 484P by Wilkinson Murray #09053/A with a new 20mm tongue & groove floor installed over a timber structure achieved and overall sound insulation improvement of 19dB or LnT,w 56.
The untreated floor system had a rating of L’nT,w 75.
