Case Study: Northampton Academy

Project:Northampton Academy
Location:Northampton
Flooring contractor:Absolute Coverings Ltd, Silverstone, Northamptonshire
Products used:Acoustix Forest fx PUR
2500mē of acoustic flooring was chosen to help improve the acoustic performance of Northampton Academy as part of the secondary school’s refurbishment project.
The classic, wood effect American Oak design from the Acoustix Forest fx PUR range was installed along corridors and staircases on multiple levels at Northampton Academy by local flooring contractor Absolute Coverings Ltd who are based in Silverstone, Northamptonshire. Suitable for demanding, high traffic commercial environments like large schools, this acoustic floorcovering produces an impact sound reduction level of 19dB, reducing the transfer of noise throughout this modern school building that accommodates approximately 1400 pupils.

Available in 8 sophisticated and highly realistic wood effect designs, the hard wearing Acoustix Forest fx range features a closed-cell foam backing to provide its 19dB reduction in impact sound within interiors, that exceeds UK Building Regulation requirements of 17dB. This heterogeneous sheet vinyl floorcovering also importantly features a polyurethane reinforcement (PUR) which provides enhanced protection and an easier life-long, polish-free maintenance regime, leading to overall maintenance cost savings.

Jed Queally, Business Manager at Northampton Academy comments, “We specifically wanted an acoustic floorcovering to help create a more peaceful learning environment for our pupils, where excessive noise from foot traffic around classrooms would be less of a distraction.”
