    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.
