About sound reduction
Forbo Flooring is an expert when it comes to sound reduction. There are 2 different types of sound that can impact your working or living environment: impact sound reduction and in-room impact sound reduction.
In-room impact sound
In-room impact sound relates to impact sound in the room itself. You want to reduce this to create a more calm and pleasant environment. All products in the Sarlon range offer a lot of sound reduction and are rated class A, the best possible class.
Impact sound relates to the sound that is transmitted through the floor from one level to the level below. Reducing this impact sound is a critical characteristic in more and more environments and with our Sarlon 19dB flooring we offer the best possible improvement on impact sound from rooms above in high traffic locations, measured in EN ISO 717-2. In combination with the other superior performance characteristics, Forbo Flooring is really leading in this important contributor to well-being.
The challenge for acoustic floor coverings is to associate the highest sound reduction level to the best possible performance in terms of indentation resistance. Sarlon and Modul'up floors always present the best-in-class combination of these two performances.
