WHY DO ACOUSTICS MATTER?

HEALTH AND WELL-BEING

Noise is unpleasant, often causing stress which affects mental and physical health. In workspaces with excessive noise, absenteeism actually increases. In medical facilities, the stress of noise can inhibit recovery and healing. In hospitality settings, it can defeat the purpose of rest and relaxation.

WELLBAC CUSHION BACKING

LEARN MORE

There are two types of commercial carpet backing: hardback and cushion. We believe stronly that cushion backing is the best choice — so much so that we use WellBAC cushion backing on all of our carpet tile products, as standard.

INCREASED DURABILITY

WellBAC cushion backing can prolong the life expectancy of carpet tiles by 40-50% compared with hardback products.

Flexform Sound LVT INTRODUCING

FLEXFORM SOUND LVT

THE QUIETEST

THE CHALLENGES OF DESIGNING FOR QUIET

Flooring is one of the biggest structural components affecting interior acoustics. With the popularity of luxury vinyl tiles and other smooth flooring surfaces, this can be a significant challenge for designers. Hard surfaces are noisy and do not absorb sound. They tend to reflect it back into the room or transmit it through the floor into spaces below.

That's why FLEXFORM SOUND LVT is a game-changer.

Number 1

HARD SURFACE

QUIETER THAN STANDARD LVT FLOORING

FLEXFORM SOUND LVT is 50% quieter than other LVT products currently on the market.

A BETTER VALUE

FLEXFORM SOUND LVT also reduces installation time, because it doesn't require a separate acoustic underlayment like other LVT products do. You can increase performance while lowering labor costs.
