With over 50 years’ experience in the manufacture of acoustic floor coverings, selling over 4,000,000m2 worldwide per year, Forbo Flooring Systems is ideally qualified to offer a RIBA certified CPD seminar entitled “Specifying Acoustic Flooring: The Latest Building Regulations & Best Practice.”
The seminar examines the impact of noise pollution in working, living and learning environments and explores the role that acoustic flooring can play in sound reduction and the creation of more comfortable and harmonious interiors.
Attendees will enhance their knowledge of current Regulations and Standards that need to be considered when specifying acoustic flooring solutions and the specific performance criteria to look for when specifying for both mainstream and more demanding applications such as healthcare facilities, educational establishments and other public buildings.
With reference to products found within Forbo’s extensive range of resilient floor coverings, the seminar demonstrates how enhanced acoustic performance can be combined with superior levels of appearance retention, indentation and scratch resistance, dimensional stability, bacteriostatic characteristics, increased slip resistance and anti-static control properties to meet specific location and usage requirements.
In addition to the technical and aesthetic aspects of acoustic flooring, environmental issues and whole of life costings are also considered in detail. Having attended this CPD seminar attendees will be able to make more informed, effective and sustainable choices and comply with relevant Regulations and Standards whenever and wherever acoustic flooring is required.
