Why worry about noise? Health Concerns.

Excessive noise has been linked to sleep disturbance, cardiovascular effects, and psychophysiological effects.

The World Health Organization links serious health concerns to excessive noise including: sleep disturbance, cardiovascular and psychophysiological effects. These can reduce performance at both school and work and provoke changes in social behavior.

In the Hospitality & Lodging Industry, better control of sound transmission has a direct correlation to higher guest satisfaction. Hotel noise has been cited in online guest reviews as a leading travel complaint since 2010 according to JD Power's North American Hotel Guest Satisfaction Index.

IIC & STC Ratings

Impact Insulation Class

Sound Transmission Class (STC) is a rating of how well a building partition attenuates airborne sound (eg. TV or radio). STC is dominated by the mass in an assembly (e.g. Concrete vs. wood construction). This number is minimally affected by the floor covering and/or underlayment.

Impact Insulation Class (IIC) is a rating of how well a floor-ceiling assembly attenuates impact sounds (footsteps, dropped items). IIC is dominated by material properties and installation methods. This number can be significantly improved by the proper floor covering and underlayment.

Sound Transmission Class (STC) Impact Insulation Class (IIC)

AttainSilence achieves Delta IIC ratings as high as 26dB

The best way to treat structure-borne noise is to suppress it at its source - the flooring! Once acoustic energy enters the structure of a building, it becomes much more difficult to control. It can cost 10 times as much to fix a noise problem than address it in the design phase.

Why is AttainSilence effective?

Different building materials transmit sound at different speeds. A vital piece of the AttainSilence System, ECOsilence is a recycled rubber underlayment that greatly reduces structure-borne sound transmission.

Acoustic Solutions

AttainSilence combines an ECOsilence underlayment with an Attain LVT surface to create flooring that controls acoustics.

Ecore offers ECOsilence bases in 3 different thicknesses, and when combined with Attain, will handle all of your acoustic needs.

To Increase the Effectiveness....

Perimeter isolation strips isolate the flooring from the walls to minimize lateral sound transmission. Lightweight and easy to install, the strips are to be used with every ECOsilence installation. This product is 6mm (0.24") thick by 2.5" wide, and is distributed in rolls of 50 lf.
