MP Global launches LuxWalk underlayment

Home News MP Global launches LuxWalk underlayment

Norfolk, Neb. — MP Global Products has introduced LuxWalk, a new underlayment engineered specifically for underneath floating or glue-down luxury vinyl flooring.

According to the company, LuxWalk provides full subfloor coverage and effectively soothes impact sound and floor to ceiling noise.

At 25/1000” thickness and featuring a engineered heavy duty design, LuxWalk adds cushioning under LVF and is sturdy enough to smooth out minor imperfections in the subfloor without perceptibly raising the finished floor height. It also retards movement of LVF installed over it, helping reduce abrasion of the underside of the LVF and minimizing impressions and indentations that can occur in the finished floor, the company said.

Made from polyethylene film that incorporates blended recycled polyester fiber (derived from soda bottles diverted from landfill) with hot-melt adhesive, LuxWalk, with 31% post-consumer recycled content, is LEED compliant.

Made from polyethylene film that incorporates blended recycled polyester fiber (derived from soda bottles diverted from landfill) with hot-melt adhesive, LuxWalk, with 31 percent post-consumer recycled content, is LEED compliant and will contribute to MRc 4.1-4.2 credits.

LuxWalk’s excellent sound test results provide irrefutable documentation that can be shared with building inspectors at commercial or multi-family housing projects who are evaluating sound suppression, whether or not the manufacturer of the LVF has, independently, tested for sound reduction.

LuxWalk also improves the way LVF handles potential harmful moisture, carrying an excellent Water Vapor Transmission Rate of 0.273 grams per 100 sq. inches per day.
