    Overview

    Model # 70003610 Store SKU # 1000747034

    DMX 1-Step is designed for use with Laminate and Engineered Hardwood floors. DMX 1-Step has a complete vapour seal at the joints, so that moisture cannot migrate to your finished floors and damage them. It does not use a tongue and groove connection that can be compromised by moisture permeability. The space age foam provides cushioned comfort, and keeps your finished floors warm to the touch while keeping a gap from the cold damp concrete floor. Laminate flooring and engineered flooring (greater than 8mm) can be laid down directly on DMX 1-Step, so you save almost 1 on the clear height of your basement.

    1. Roll Size - 44 inch x 27 ft. 6 inch - Compressive Strength - 6000 PSF
    1. Only dimpled underlayment that is certified by the North American Laminate Association
    1. DMX 1-Step combines the unique advantages of an air gap membrane, which creates a ¼ inch gap between your expensive finished floors and the concrete slab so that moisture can evaporate easily
    1. DMX 1-Step can be installed with a simple utility knife, it does not require any band saws or circular saws for cutting
    1. DMX 1-Step has the highest STC Rating (66) and IIC Rating (69) of any dimpled membrane on the market

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install This was pretty easy to put down and made the floor warmer to walk on. Until we are sure the water issue we were having is resolved we just relaid the Berber carpet for the time being. The underlayment bubbled up in a few spots and clicks when walked on but I'm sure this will stop when we lay the floor. So far we are happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible quality, excellent product. An absolutely incredible product with extremely good insulation. Laid it flat on a concrete floor with 10mm TrafficMaster laminate floor and the difference from the concrete to the top of the underlay was unbelievable (yes... we tested). Lays and cuts easy and was a super fast and economical option that has fit all of our needs for the basement. We wish we had used it upstairs too!

    whats the difference between this product and the DMX Airflow?

    Asked by: pc27
    Hello pc27: DMX 1-Step has been designed for laminate and engineered hardwood flooring. You can install your laminate and engineered hardwood directly on top of DMX 1-Step. You do not require plywood/OSB or laminate foam. DMX 1-Step has foam on one side (the white side that goes down), a dimple height of 8mm and a compressive strength of 4,000 lbs per square foot. DMX Airflow has been designed for floating floors. You can install laminate, engineered hardwood, luxury vinyl planks and carpet directly on top of DMX Airflow. You do not require plywood/OSB, laminate foam or carpet pad. DMX Airflow has foam on both sides, a dimple height of 4mm and a compressive strength of 8,000 lbs per square foot. With regards to luxury vinyl planks, we recommend a minimum thickness of 5mm. We recommend that you follow our installation instruction when installing our underlayment(s). The instructions can be found inside each rolls and on our website. Customer Care DMX

    If i install 5/8' OSB T&G over the 1-step vapor barrier, does it improve the R-Value? I'm also looking at placing a Pool Table in my basement so wondering if i should go ahead and install the OSB for strength.

    Asked by: James
    Hello James: The 5/8” OSB T & G will increase the R value, but due to construction techniques and materials of the OSB we cannot give you an exact number that it will increase. However, we do not recommend the use of OSB or Plywood in basements. DMX 1-Step has a compressive strength of 4,000 lbs per square foot. DMX 1-Step will work for this application, as long as the weight per square foot does not exceed 4,000 lbs. However, it would be a good idea to check with the manufacturer of your flooring to see if they recommend placing a pool table on top of their product. Customer Care DMX

    My plans are to use this product on a basement floor. I also want to use 1.5" rigid foam insulation, followed by 3/4" OBS (added insulation and support) Will the 1-step hold up to this assuming I keep the 6000 lbs/sq ft capacity in mind?

    Asked by: Ch3rry
    Hello Ch3rry: Assuming that you keep the load capacity of 4,000 lbs per square foot in mind, you can install 1.5" rigid foam and 3/4" OSB on top of DMX 1-Step. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at 1-855-501-7837. Customer Care DMX

    How would this product stand up as a temporary floor...  Unable to floor basement over funds, tired of cold basement floor, can kids run around on it?  I also have cats, can they scratch it and wreck it, what about dogs walking on it? 

    Asked by: Travis
    Hello Travis: All of DMX underlayment were designed for use with a floor covering and not to be used as a standalone floor. Customer Care DMX

    Can EVA foam tiles be installed directly on top of DMX underlay over concrete basement floor?

    Asked by: Oleg
    Hello Oleg: We do not recommend installing foam tiles directly on top of DMX 1-Step. The installation of foam tiles on top of DMX 1-Step may cause unwanted vertical deflection. Customer Care DMX

    Hi, to clarify, does this product work for laminate floors that are 8mm thick, or is it only to be used for laminates greater than 8mm.  thanks 

    Asked by: PCW87
    As per the specs of it, it says it's designed for floors thicker than 8mm... I used 15 mm on mine, and it turned out incredible..

    Hello. I would like to use this on my concrete and put a thermal underlay on top before I lay my laminate down. Is this a proper method of installing this product? I am looking to keep the floors as warm as possible without losing ceiling height. Thanks!

    Asked by: Shyamp80
    I placed it right over top my concrete basement floor, and the floors are not cold. I was very skeptical initially, but once I laid it, and placed 13 mm flooring over it, it turned out beautifully.. I'm not certain about an underlay before the DMX, as I just went right overtop concrete... Hope this helps some...

    Can de DMX Underlayment be used on a concrete floor, below a laminate flooring?. This old concrete floor allows humidity to get up from the ground, because is not more than 1.1/2 inch thick and was built in 1929, so it has cracks and repairs.

    Asked by: Johnny
    Hello Johnny: DMX 1-Step Underlayment has been designed for concrete floor application. DMX 1-Step has been primarily designed for laminate and engineered hardwood flooring with a minimum thickness of 8mm. DMX 1-Step can be installed directly on the concrete floor. The dimples create an air gap for moisture to evaporate. The laminate can be installed directly on top of DMX 1-Step, as long as the laminate is 8mm thick or more. Customer Care DMX
