Sound carried between the floors of a building can be a real nuisance, especially for people living in flats and apartments. Recent flooring trends have not helped this situation either, as more and more people are tending to replace traditional carpeted floors with more modern flooring types like laminate and engineered wood. People often choose these types of flooring as they can be much easier to clean and maintain but their hard surfaces can also create a lot of impact noise!
One of the newest type of flooring available, Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), addresses this problem as it is much softer than laminate and wood so much quieter to walk on. At the same time LVT is totally waterproof so extremely hygienic and easy to clean. Serenity-click, our newest type of LVT, goes even further, featuring a sound absorbing foam backing layer which further reduces noise.
One of our customers recently asked us to help them with the noise problem in their flat. Their downstairs neighbours had complained about the level of noise coming through the their ceiling. We removed the existing engineered wood flooring and fitted White Oak, Serenity-click LVT throughout. Now their flat is clean and serene!
