Acoustic Properties of Carpeted Floors
Author: Wools of NZ (2002), edited and updated by ITF Academy (2018)
This report discusses the most versatile of the acoustic materials known at present – Carpets. It is the
only material that reduces noise in buildings by absorbing airborne sound, reducing the
transmission of impact sound (i.e. footfalls) and reducing the generation of surface noise. This is
particularly important in offices, hospital corridors, theatres, libraries, conference halls, etc.
