Thanks to Centaur’s Sound Reducer, Silence is Golden

July 17, 2019

A long-standing premier product pick from team Trinity Surfaces comes from Centaur Floor Systems. The truth is in their name. Centaur isn’t just a company that offers high-quality flooring. No, in fact, they offer so much more. Centaur offers complete flooring systems that exceed expectations alongside customer service that can’t be beat! That’s a dynamic duo if we ever saw one.

It’s not news that we’re fans of Centaur Floor Systems. We’ve always admired the product line’s ability to enhance any space. And beyond that, and at the core of the Centaur brand, the people who we get to collaborate with are top notch.

Our focus with this update is Centaur Floor Systems’ Sound Reducer. We’ve learned so much more about it recently that we couldn’t wait to tell you about it! 

So, let’s talk about it.

Flooring with Sound Reducer

This type of flooring technology was made for use directly under most floor coverings. It can be installed underneath most types of grouted, glued, and floating floors, including hard tile, hardwood, engineered wood, laminate, LVT, and carpet. Sound Reducer is also available with a waterproof membrane! The installation is fast and hassle-free. The product is TCNA-rated high-performance crack isolation membrane. Compatible with radiant heat, it is thin-set to 2mm and 5mm thicknesses per ASTM C627. Attention to ergonomics, safety, and sound are the keys to Sound Reducer’s success.

  • Sound Reducer, as well as all of the flooring systems from Centaur, was created with functional design as the focus. This extra mile of intent has been proven to decrease the risk of fatigue and frustration from the end-user (workers/people utilizing the space). 


  • Homogeneous and slip-resistant add even more value to the overall quality of Centaur’s Sound Reducer.
  • The product has unmatched impact sound insulation succes, even under hard surface flooring for concrete or wood-framed construction!

Ideal spaces for Sound Reducer

The list is long and somewhat neverending, but some of the most ideal candidates for flooring with Centaur’s sound reducer are healthcare facilities, education buildings, retail spaces, commercial kitchens, public bathrooms, locker rooms, and other wet areas. Every application need potentially has a place for Centaur. 

Who can benefit 

The spaces and their inhabitants are the end beneficiaries of flooring with this technology. They’ll get to enjoy a more quiet and ergonomic experience every time they use the space. But, industry leaders in the following positions are key building the bridge between a high-quality product and those who will be utilizing it:

  • Developers- Multi-Family Housing
  • Retail/Commercial main street fitness stores.
  • Architects
  • Designers
  • Flooring Contractors
  • Flooring Installers
