Reducing Impact Noise with Forbo Flooring

Reducing Impact Noise with Forbo Flooring

Minimise impact sound with Forbo flooring systems’ new Allura decibel range.

In the UK, we typically spend around 90 per cent of our time indoors, with much of it being spent in our homes. As such, people are becoming more interested and concerned with how the internal environment affects them – and in turn are putting more pressure on developers to create homes that can minimise internal noise, to help them to relax and re-energise for the following day.

Indeed, according to the World Health Organisation, excessive noise can seriously harm human health and interfere with people’s daily activities at school, work and at home. It can disturb sleep, cause cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects, reduce performance and provoke annoyance responses and changes in social behaviour. Therefore, specifying products with high acoustic performance credentials is crucial to create a comfortable space for residents – especially in apartments or flats, where sound can transfer from flat to flat, through the floor.

One such example of an interior product that has been developed to minimise impact sound, is Forbo Flooring Systems’ new acoustic Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) collection. The new tackified Allura Decibel range has been designed to deliver 19 dB impact sound reduction, without compromising on aesthetics or ease of installation. In fact, the Decibel range offers 30 tile and plank formats in a range of its own unique and contemporary designs and is the perfect sound reducing solution for apartment buildings.
