Ive been looking at the same as I have a cold floor to do during the summer. The best I have come up with is this the green 6mm stuff that you can find in the likes of B&Q. I used it before for when floating solid oak in an apartment.

Thanks John

Have found the same by searching on google, most of the rolls ( silver, gold etc ...) only seem to work on acoustics ... will keep checking

Something I forgot to mention


I am putting 18mm OSB2 board down on the floors, is it worth putting the insulation / fibre board on top, or is this overkill

I've used the fibre board between a wooden floor and a ply base. It works well I think, sound transmission to downstairs is much improved on what it used to be.
