New acoustic engineered flooring developed

A new type of engineered flooring has been developed that has an integral acoustic layer made from recycled aircraft tyres. The TIERacoustix™ flooring is produced in the UK and is suitable for commercial use.

As well as an acoustic layer, the engineered wood has an innovative tongue-and-groove fastening, which the manufacturers claim reduces installation time by around a half. The acoustic layer is in the middle of each engineered plank and is manufactured from recycled aircraft types. The outer surface layer is made from natural oak. The lower layers are manufactured from laminated birch core, and there is a bottom magnetic layer that enables the wood planks to be lifted and replaced easily. The engineered wood has the FSC and PEFC symbols that certify the timber in the planks is from sustainable forests, and it has been tested to show that it is fire resistant, non-slip and has high thermal conductivity.

Many workplaces need a quiet working environment, which can be achieved with acoustic flooring. Carpets have natural acoustic properties, but solid flooring reflects sound and makes the environment noisier. For engineered wood floors, an acoustic underlay can be used to dampen sound, or engineered wood that has a bottom acoustic layer can be used.

Engineered flooring in Cheshire and Wirral commercial spaces is chosen because of it having the natural look of real wood and its ease of maintenance. If acoustics are an issue, a floor installer can advise on the best solution.
