Rubbertech, which specialises in the use of recycled rubber for flooring systems, has launched the Balconeze Acoustic Ceramic Tile that has been designed for use on roof gardens and balconies.

The tile has a sound-deadening, non-slip surface for use on pathways and seating areas on roof gardens, and also protects waterproofing membranes on flat roofs that are subject to foot traffic.

It is the rubber granulate backing on the tiles that provides acoustic insulation, thus reducing noise from the footfall of people using the roof garden or carrying out maintenance.
