3 Sound Dampening Solutions for your Open Space

3 Sound Dampening Solutions for your Open Space

Sound dampening flooring is becoming a more strategic choice as open space offices become more popular. These open spaces allow for a less claustrophobic feeling than traditional offices and more opportunity for cross-collaboration, but they come with their own problems. For instance, these areas are prone to more noise. Sound dampening flooring can help reduce this issue and create a cohesive, welcoming space for employees.

Option One: Dura Wood

Dura Wood provides sound control and improved ergonomics. The recycled rubber underlayment and range of colors make Dura Wood the perfect option for large spaces to get that classic wood flooring look with a quiet floor that is also easily cleaned.
