All of us at NALFA are pleased to announce that two laminate underlayment manufacturers have earned the NALFA Certification Seal. The Silencer™ from Foam Products Corp. and TORLYS Safe & Sound underlayment brands have successfully passed ANSI product testing and may now display the NALFA certification seal as testament to their quality.

“Underlayment quality is a major issue in today’s industry,” says Erik Arnold with Foam Products Corp. “NALFA certification gives great credibility and upholding to our product’s reputation and track record for unparalleled performance.”

Tino Couto from TORLYS added, “TORLYS laminate flooring is already certified by NALFA. It is a valued certification and was a logical step for us to pursue for our underlayment. It gives our customers peace of mind and assurance when buying our state-of-the-art products.”

In order to earn the NALFA Certification Seal and the quality that it represents, a laminate underlayment product must pass two tiers of demanding tests designed to evaluate its performance. Tests include but are not limited to impact sound, airborne sound transmission, compression deflection, thickness, and moisture vapor transmission. Underlayment products that successfully pass testing are outfitted with the NALFA Certification Seal. Builders and homeowners can identify the seal and rest assured the product they are choosing meets and/or exceeds the highest level of industry standards set forth by NALFA.

“It is great to see the constant support from top manufacturers in the laminate underlayment industry,” said E. C. “Bill” Dearing, president of NALFA. “By continually submitting product lines for the rigorous testing conducted by NALFA, Foam Products Corp. and TORLYS are not only showing their support for industry standards, they are also showcasing the quality of their brands. We applaud them for their efforts to seek NALFA Certification on their products.”

The NALFA Certification Seal can be located on the manufacturer’s Web site, marketing materials or promotional materials as well as the product packaging itself. By identifying the seal, builders and homeowners will know they are selecting a product that is long- lasting, durable and capable of meeting the highest level of standards within the laminate flooring industry.
