Sound is part of the everyday learning environment, but noise is a significant concern that is well documented to affect productivity and wellbeing. Noise has a major impact on people’s psychological and physical wellbeing and so can reduce performance and productivity.
With wide-open spaces to provide a feeling of space and to encourage communication and comfort, the modern educational facility can be devoid of natural sound absorbers such as ceilings and partitions. For these reasons, noise is ever-present.
modulyss dBack helps to reduce noise to allow concentration, yet at the same time provide an environment where communication is easy. The backing also absorbs footfall impact, reduces leg muscle fatigue and generally makes the environment a more comfortable place to be. modulyss selected the densest and most stable felt backing in order to assure the perfect seams and the steadiness all through the life cycle of the carpet tiles.
Compared with their standard back2back backing, modulyss dBack provides a minimum improvement of 50% in sound absorption and an average improvement of 15% impact noise rating.
dBack also comes with FiberAcoustic as a secondary backing. It is made from recycled polyester (70%) and is free from chemical binders, making this felt backing harmless to the environment.
