Tame the Noise: Create quieter and more productive environments with acoustic floor panels 

Does constant noise disrupt focus and communication in your space? Open-plan offices,  gyms, classrooms, and even home cinemas can suffer from excessive echoes and sound transmission.

Acoustic floor panels offer a practical solution for noise reduction, creating a calmer and more productive environment.  

The Benefits of Acoustic Flooring 

Unlike traditional hard surfaces that readily transmit sound, acoustic floor panels act as a sound barrier. Here’s how they can benefit your space:

Reduced Noise Levels:

The primary benefit is a quieter environment. This is crucial for areas prone to noise, like open-plan offices or classrooms. Imagine a conference call where every footstep and keyboard click isn’t a distraction. Acoustic flooring absorbs sound waves, reducing overall noise levels and creating a calmer atmosphere. This can significantly improve communication and collaboration in office environments and foster a more focused learning environment in classrooms.

Improved Concentration:  

Reduced noise distractions can lead to better concentration and focus, ultimately resulting in increased productivity. Open-plan offices can be a breeding ground for distractions, with constant noise impacting focus and productivity. Acoustic flooring in high traffic rooms helps to create a quieter environment elsewhere in the building, allowing employees to concentrate on their tasks without being interrupted by noise. This can lead to improved work quality, increased efficiency, and ultimately, a boost in overall productivity.

Enhanced Comfort:

A quieter space is a more peaceful and relaxing space. Acoustic flooring contributes to a more comfortable environment for everyone. Constant noise can be a source of stress and fatigue. Acoustic flooring helps to create a quieter and more relaxed environment, which can improve overall comfort and well-being for occupants. Imagine a classroom where students feel less stressed and more focused, or a home theatre where you can truly unwind and enjoy your favourite movies without distractions.

Choosing the Right Acoustic Floor Panel

Here are some key factors to consider when selecting acoustic floor panels:

Sound Absorption:

Measured by the Sound Absorption Coefficient (SAC), this rating indicates how effectively the panel absorbs sound waves. A higher SAC translates to better noise reduction. Look for panels with an SAC rating suited to your needs. For example, a higher SAC is crucial for open-plan offices or noisy classrooms, while a moderate SAC might suffice for a home cinema.

Impact Noise Reduction:

The Impact Sound Insulation (IIC) rating measures how well the panel reduces impact noise, such as footsteps or dropped objects. Consider the type of activity that will occur in the space. High-traffic areas like hallways or classrooms will benefit from panels with a higher IIC rating to minimize disruptive impact noise.

Material:

High-quality acoustic floor panels are often made from materials known for their sound-absorbing properties. Here’s a breakdown of some popular options:

Cork:

A natural and eco-friendly option, cork offers excellent sound absorption and thermal insulation properties. However, it may require special care and might not be the most cost-effective choice for all applications.

Wood Fibre:

Wood fibre panels provide good sound absorption and are often aesthetically pleasing. However, their performance can vary depending on the specific composition, and they might require additional maintenance compared to other options.

Recycled Rubber:

A sustainable and cost-effective choice, recycled rubber offers excellent sound absorption and impact noise reduction. It’s also durable and slip-resistant, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.

Durability:

Acoustic floor panels are an investment, so choose ones built to withstand regular wear and tear. Consider the amount of foot traffic the space will experience and the potential for spills or scratches. Look for panels with a wear layer appropriate for the intended use.

Safety:

Slip resistance is essential, especially in areas prone to moisture or spills. Choose panels with a textured surface that meets industry safety standards for slip resistance. This is crucial for areas like hallways, classrooms, or even kitchens.

Acoustic floor panels are an investment in a more peaceful and productive space. By reducing noise and creating a calmer environment, they can significantly improve the quality of your space.
