Quick and clean to install and immediately ready to walk on, our unique self-adhesive acoustic underlay is transforming the way floors are installed.

InstaLay – the flooring revolution starts here

With our unique self-adhesive underlay there’s less need for expensive and messy subfloor preparation, and no more contaminating, wet adhesives. You can complete floors in a fraction of the time compared to old installation methods.

How does InstaLay work?

InstaLay integrates our high performing acoustic underlay with a high grab dry adhesive. The unique self-adhesive design means no drying time and minimum downtime, making InstaLay ideal for commercial use. The adhesive we use is pressure sensitive, so foot traffic on the floor actually improves the initial bond.

Our self-adhesive underlay saves time and cost, as InstaLay can be loose laid directly over existing flooring with no need to uplift floors or repair subfloors before installation. Dry adhesive makes future lifting easier too.

  • The release film is peeled back and new flooring can be positioned and pressed directly onto InstaLay
  • Available with high-grab adhesive for permanent bonding, or low-grab for easy future lifting
  • Partners with solid, engineered and laminate wood floors, LVTs, ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles, carpet tiles and carpets
  • Combines with unique floor coverings from Innov8floors to deliver a compete flooring solution
  • Ideal for private homes and housing with multiple occupants as well as hospitality, retail, healthcare, education and leisure applications
