Does Avaire tiles need a sound or moisture barrier?

Thanks in advance,
Blake

Avaire flooring doesn't need either. It has an IIC rating of (I believe) 58. Moisture won't harm Avaire flooring but if you're installing it in a wet area, like a bathroom floor, then you will want to fill the perimeter with a sealant to prevent water getting under the tile.
