Floor Underlayment

A floating floor means a floor does not need to be nailed or glued to the subfloor. The term floating floor refers to the installation method. This method is depending on the design of the shipyard which is compatible with the requirement by the owner. This floating floor can consist of a glass fibre, felt layer for sound insulation with neoprene pads holding up a laminate floor. There is a gap between the floor and the walls to decouple them and allow for expansion, this gap is covered with skirting boards or mouldings.
