Around one in five people in the UK hear noise from their neighbours and almost half of those find it most annoying.

Sound Service (Oxford) Ltd was established in 1969, it’s main aim to reduce unwanted neighbourhood noise and supply effective sound reducing products to the whole of the UK.

“There are two main types of transmitted noise, Airborne sound and impact based sound. Ordinarily you would need a combination of products to treat both the noise types. We found our customers wanted an “all in one” solution and in the early 1970’s we developed Quietfloor.” Describes Stephen Young, Company Manager.

Quietfloor is only 12mm thick and made from two layers of mineral loaded mass vinyl with a sound absorbing chipfoam sandwich in the centre. Each vinyl layer is equal in performance to that of lead sheet and blocks out airborne sound superbly. The acoustic chipfoam core reduces the impact sound caused when people walk on the floor. These two products combined make Quietfloor one of Sound Service’s best sellers in the domestic market.

Quietfloor is normally used under carpet and replaces the need for a standard carpet underlay. It is also very effective on stair treads and meets the PART E building regulations when bonded to concrete floors.

Sound Service prides itself on being a market leader for recycled products and 67 % of each slab of Quietfloor is made from recycled materials.
