Your go-to guide to Acoustic Flooring
Sound treatment is often essential in any building and JCW Acoustic Flooring have just the solution for you! JCW Acoustic Flooring can help you to reduce noise disturbance and enhance the sound quality with appropriate Acoustic Flooring.
What is Acoustic Flooring?
If you’re to prevent the transfer of unwanted sounds, Acoustic Flooring is highly recommended.
The sound of voices or footsteps generate a noise and it’s this noise that you hear. Noises can cause a disturbance within the home or the business, hence why Acoustic Flooring is becoming increasingly more popular. When a noise is generated, it’s either absorbed, reflected or transmitted.
Here at JCW, we provide Acoustic Flooring to prevent the transmission of sounds from room to room or floor to floor. Another reason why we provide sound treatment is to reduce background noise and to enhance the quality of speech.
Acoustic Flooring is an effective way to accomplish the goal of sound treatment, protecting against the transmission of sound through the walls but also the upper and lower floor. We can ultimately assist you to create the best acoustic environment, whether it be in your domestic or commercial property.
What types of noise can Acoustic Flooring help with?
There are various noises generated within buildings and these can often cause a distraction. Generally, there are two types of noise; impact and airborne sounds.
- Impact Sound
Foot traffic and vibrations are often sounds that are generated within the home and the business. These are both examples of impact sounds that need to be insulated.
The best way to overcome the transmission of impact sounds is to install floating floors or sound insulating underlay, as these can improve the impact insulation rating.
- Airborne Sound
When noises are produced by people, these are often considered to be airborne sounds. The sound of voices and instruments can easily be transmitted through the floor and various other areas within your building, hence why Acoustic Flooring is required.
