EcoFlex™ Echo carpet tiles are equipped with an acoustic backing, reducing noise levels and providing improved comfort.

When designing a well-balanced space, a series of elements needs to be taken into consideration. Whether it’s a choice of colours, decoration items, lighting or use of materials; each will contribute to the overall feeling of a room. In this, the aspect of acoustics is often underestimated, despite optimal sound insulation and absorption being essential to create a healthy and productive working environment. That’s why soundproofing through flooring has become a necessary part of interior design in modern construction and renovation projects.

EcoFlex™ Echo backing can be specified on all carpet tiles when ordering a minimum quantity of 200 m².

How carpet tiles can help improve the acoustics in any space

The extent of required sound insulation and absorption is inextricably linked to the purpose of a space. Office and workspace, housing, education, healthcare, retail, hospitality and leisure spaces each face their own unique challenges when it comes to acoustic demands.

In offices, especially open-space concepts, reducing noise is crucial for concentration and productivity. By minimizing excessive sound employees find it easier to concentrate, perform and come up with creative ideas.

Education environments must balance the need to absorb background noise with the ability for teachers and pupils to be heard clearly.

The hospitality industry is increasingly confronted with acoustic demands. Particularly in hotels and gastronomic restaurants, where calmness is synonymous with luxury, powerful acoustic flooring like EcoFlex™ Echo is invaluable.

In other areas, such as healthcare, peace and quiet are the absolute norm. Clinical populations are generally more sensitive to unwanted sounds.
