NOTE: All rolls of QuietWalk TM are cut to a minimum of 100 ft2 (9,3 m2). The average thickness of QuietWalk TM is 0.125’’ (3 mm). The average weight of a roll of 100 ft2 is 13.8 lbs. (6,2 kg.). Due to the nature of our manufacturing process and the use of recycled materials, the pad thickness may vary +/- 0.02’’ (0,5 mm).
Actual weight of each roll may also vary +/- 2 lbs. (0,9 kg.). While it may appear that one roll is slightly larger than another, we guarantee this variance DOES NOT affect the coverage area nor the sound absorption benefits of the product.
