highest noise reduction coefficient and impact insulation classification
Kinetex offers one of the highest Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC) and Impact Insulation Classifications (IIC) rating of any commercial flooring product. This unparalleled acoustic performance results in dramatic reductions in both airborne and structure borne noise. Its excellent Impact Insulation Classification effectively promotes greater voice recognition, fewer mistakes, less vocal strain, enhanced learning and improved occupant perception.
Historically commercial carpet was the only flooring type that could effectively manage in-room noise as well as impact noise. Kinetex has a higher noise reduction coefficient (NRC) than both commercial carpet and hard surface.
