The highest performing commercially graded acoustic carpet tiles in the Acoufelt floor offering feature QuietBackTM. When a carpet is specified as featuring QuietBackTM, you know that the holistic carpet construction has been optimised for its acoustic performance. This works when the face pile layer has been attached directly to the felt, allowing the pile and backing to work together. This significantly increases the air flow capability of the tile, which in turn increases the acoustic absorption results. This is an important acoustic concept.
Traditional methods in carpet construction focus on increasing pile mass to achieve acoustic absorption.
However, this method has the effect of compromising commercial wear ratings. While felt backed carpet tiles have traditionally been viewed purely as an underlayment for underfoot comfort, carpet tiles featuring QuietBackTM have been designed specifically for sound absorption. The air flow, breathable feature of QuietBackTM is the result of removing harmful and sound-inhibiting PVC, bitumen and fiberglass substrates, allowing the product to offer both environmental and acoustical benefits. By eliminating such sound-reflecting substances, carpet tiles featuring QuietBackTM deliver a superior noise absorption capability for the floor.
