Commercial flooring specialist Polyflor has launched an acoustic flooring system.
It consists of two ranges of sheet vinyl: the Polyflor Gallery FX Acoustic and the Polyflor Forest FX Acoustic. The gallery range is suitable for schools and hospitals. It is available in 14 wood, stone and mottled granite effects and has a 0.5mm wear layer. The Forest range is said to be suitable for heavy commercial installations. It is available in 10 wood effect colours and has a 0.65mm wear layer. Both ranges are intended to be teamed with the Acoustifoam closed-cell backing sheet, which the company says gives an impact sound resistance of 18dB.
