Flooring & Acoustics

Dispelling the Myths of the Role Flooring Plays in Room Acoustics:Acoustics has become an ever increasing factor in modern construction. Whether in healthcare, education, residential housing, or any other industry, acoustics plays an important role in nearly every sector of the market. For example, there are guidelines on how loud classrooms should be, how much noise workers can be exposed to, and even the level of privacy required in sensitive office spaces. To accomplish these goals, numerous metrics and standards have been created to assess various acoustic characteristics of building components. Unfortunately, there is now so much data available that it can become confusing when trying to evaluate the acoustic needs of a space. This is particularly true when referring to flooring.
