Akusztikus padló

Sarlon acoustic vinyl sheet

The floor coverings in the Sarlon acoustic project vinyl range have been developed and tested to maximize impact sound reduction while meeting the needs of heavy traffic commercial areas. They contribute to lowering noise disturbance within a building in a number of ways.

In our Sarlon range you will find floors with an impact sound reduction of 15, 17 & 19dB. The collection consists of various subranges each with it's own design.

Impact sound reduction

Impact sound reduction

How does it work?

Sound is generated by almost all everyday activity. Impact sound is generated by traffic contacting the floor surface. It is therefore also the main area where a floor covering can influence acoustic performance.

Impact sound made on the floor in 1 room is transmitted through the floor into rooms below. In order to measure the impact sound reduction achieved by a floor covering, impact noise is generated with a hammer machine directly onto the concrete floor slab in an emission room and the sound level (S1) is recorded in the reception room below. The floor covering is then laid onto the concrete slab, the same impact noise is made on the floor covering, and the new sound level (S2) is recorded. The impact sound reduction (EN ISO 717-2) is the difference, measured in decibels, between the 2 sound levels recorded.

The impact sound reduction of Forbo's acoustic project vinyl and linoleum floors ranges from 14 to 19dB.

For schools, proper acoustic performance creates a quiet atmosphere (even if children are running in the corridors) to help children learn. In offices, it reduces stress and aggressiveness. And for hospitals and elderly homes, more peaceful environments help people recover – even if the medical staff is active and noisy. The best way to reduce sound is at the source. That’s why acoustic floors are key when it comes to reducing noise in
buildings.

Sarlon & the environment

Sarlon & the environment

Forbo’s dedication to protecting the environment and investing in a sustainable future also applies for the Sarlon acoustic series.

Green energy
The Sarlon collection is manufactured using green energy and modern production technology that reduces the processes involved to a minimum.

Lower ink consumption
The design of this range has much lower ink consumption thanks to our new engraving technology.

Water Treatment Station
We are also proud of our Water Treatment Station. It clears 100% of the ink components from the water used for production.

Reducing carbon emissions
Our acoustic range conforms to all standards, including the new VOC emission classes. And, this range is made in Europe for mostly European markets, reducing transport related carbon emissions. The easy cleaning, minimum demand for detergents and long lasting performance of our floors also contribute to a better environment in many ways.

Compliance Plus
As a principle, Forbo works to “Compliance Plus” – a commitment set by our own standards and one that goes beyond government regulations and requirements. We see investments in people, processes and products that further improve our environmental performance as investments for the future, not a cost of doing business. We use independent Life Cycle Assessments to constantly find ways to measure and minimize the environmental impact of our products from raw material extraction to end of life.

Reducing cleaning & maintenance
The PUR finish makes our acoustic floors easy to clean and their lasting performance means Sarlon will stay in excellent condition, even under heavy traffic conditions. In addition, installing one of our entrance flooring products will help cut dirt and moisture penetration by up to 90%.
