About acoustic linoleum
Sound can have adverse effects on the human body such as sleeping disorders, stress and headaches. Acoustic floors have an important contribution when it comes to reducing noise in buildings. Forbo Flooring is a specialist in acoustic floors with more than 30 years of experience.
Our acoustic linoleum floors create a healthy environment by combining sustainability with excellent sound reduction properties. We offer 3 acoustic linoleum solutions:
