Gyp-Crete was only the beginning.
Maxxon®, The Floor Specialists, is recognized as the pioneer and leader in floor technologies. From the original Gyp-Crete® Floor Underlayment, Maxxon's comprehensive product line has expanded to include gypsum and self-leveling underlayments, sound control mats, and several other specialty products including a low density deep fill.
Ideal for renovation, commercial, multifamily, or single-family applications, Maxxon can solve any floor challenge. Maxxon Underlayments can be installed in wood frame, concrete construction, or over corrugated steel deck in steel frame construction.
Maxxon gypsum underlayments, Level-Right, and Acousti-Mat Sound Control Mats are GREENGUARD Gold Certified. Maxxon products offer the complete package with fast installation, proven performance, and may also help contribute toward points for LEED® project certification.
Maxxon now offers a high performance line of sound control mats with the Acousti-Mat® Premium Series. These mats provide upgraded impact sound control without increasing the overall floor height. An added layer of sound absorptive fabric to the bottom of the entangled mesh mat adds additional IIC protection without increasing the thickness of the mat. In new construction or renovation, Maxxon is sure to have the sound solution for any project.
