One of the biggest complaints about hardwood flooring is that can be extremely noisy. In busy high traffic areas, wood flooring is not always the best solution. However, Impervia’s LuxuryFlooring range not only holds its own in the sustainability and durability department but has also passed Acoustic and Impact tests. In fact, Impervia is one of the best flooring solutions for loft conversions and apartments due to its acoustic qualities. Fun fact – Impervia can reduce sound impact by 75%!
Building acoustics is the science of controlling noise in buildings. This includes the minimisation of noise transmission from one space to another and the control of the characteristics of sound within spaces themselves.
We have acoustic test reports on all our Impervia flooring which can be seen in the product documentation area. Impervia flooring is softer to walk on that wood floors and has an anti-slip surface with a high rating in the wet.
A high-quality, durable & acoustic flooring is the perfect choice for a wide range of projects from hotels, offices, hospitals and even busy family homes. Impervia not only provides a beautiful finish it also provides acoustic qualities creating a peaceful environment.
Apartment acoustic requirements: leases in new and old buildings will restrict wood floors and other types of flooring where sound impact can have a detrimental effect on other residents. Impervia flooring can be fitted due to its acoustic backing, and in some cases will reduce sound by even more than carpets. Impervia flooring is cleaner than carpet and will not harbour dust mites or any other allergens that may affect your health.
