How Flooring Affects Acoustic Performance
A growing body of research links acoustics with student achievement and performance. With flooring, one of the most abundant finishes in the built environment; university facility managers have an excellent opportunity to positively influence the acoustical performance of an academic space to make it more conducive to learning and information retention. Therefore, careful consideration should be taken when considering flooring choices in an educational setting.
The How Flooring Affects Acoustic Performance white paper will cover the impacts that different types of flooring can have on airborne noise reduction, structure-borne noise reduction, speech intelligibility and reverberation time.
