A Corkment underlay can be used in combination with regular Marmoleum to achieve an impact sound reduction of 14dB. First the Corkment should be installed - with the jute side up - at right angles to the same direction as that of the Marmoleum sheet.

Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to set. Then install the Marmoleum on top of the Corkment. Follow the standard installation procedures.



    About Acoustic Linoleum

    About Acoustic Linoleum

    Whether it’s receptions and corridors, or libraries and multi-level buildings, minimising noise levels plays a key role in modern environments.

    Forbo’s acoustic linoleum collections offer two innovative impact sound reduction solutions.

    With a total thickness of 4 mm, Marmoleum Acoustic reduces impact sound by 14 dB. A twin-layer linoleum built up from 2 mm of Marmoleum and 2 mm Corkment backing, it is available in 6 colours. Marmoleum Acoustic reduces installation costs as it can be installed in one run, as there is no need to lay Corkment and then Marmoleum.

    At 3.5 mm thick, Marmoleum Decibel offers the highest reduction of impact sound by 18 dB. This acoustic performance comes through laminating 2.5 mm Marmoleum onto a 1 mm thick base of polyolefin foam.
