The importance of acoustics
Building acoustics can have a significant impact on the users of a space, from simply ensuring effective and audible communication, right through to longer term effects on health, wellbeing and productivity.
Noise levels are one of the biggest complaints in an office environment. Amtico Acoustic flooring will reduce sound transmission between floors without affecting the aesthetic.
Comfort that can heal
As flooring specialists, we support specifiers and designers in following the principles of healing architecture. Amtico Acoustic products are certified for use in healthcare – meeting VOC requirements for wellbeing and air quality globally.
Acoustic flooring is used in schools to minimise the transfer of sound from other classrooms, corridors and assembly halls. In an environment where a low ambient noise is imperative to help good learning, an acoustic floor can help sound transmission of up to 19dB.
Multi-floor and multi-occupancy facilities such as student accommodation or residential dwellings have particular requirements when it comes to the regulation of noise pollution, to ensure the needs of the facility are met.
How it works
Amtico Acoustic enhances the acoustic properties of LVT by reducing sound transmission by up to 19dB and also provides an extra level of underfoot comfort.
There are three types of acoustic figures commonly quoted on the European technical data sheets - 'In-room Walking Sound', 'Impact Sound Insulation' and 'Sound Absorption'.
In-room Walking Sound
This acoustic laboratory test tries to give an indication of how noisy floors are, relative to each other.
EN 16205:2013 produces two figures - walking noise level (L n.walking.A) which is measured in dB alongside radiated walking sound (RWS) which is measured in sone.
Impact Sound Insulation
Impact sound denotes the sound that is generated when an object strikes the floor and passes into the room below.
Results are quoted as ΔLw in decibels – the higher the figure the less noise transmitted through the floor to the room below, as more of the noise is absorbed.
All materials will absorb airbone sound to an extent. It's possible to measure this in an acoustic laboratory with a measurement of sound absorption in a reverberation room.
Sound absorption data is reported as a sound absorption coefficient and usually expressed by the symbol αw. A material that absorbs 100% of the sound is represented as αw 1 whereas a material that absorbs 0% of the sound is represented as αw 0.
