Acoustic Solution for Red Cross with EcoSoft®

Improving acoustical conditions in the large open plan environment was paramount for the refurbishment of level 1, Red Cross, Carlton. 17 years after the official opening, the office has been transformed.


August 10th, 2015

Carpets Inter EcoSoft® carpet tiles were selected by Moda Design as they deliver superior acoustic benefits including twice the sound absorption of traditional hardback carpet tiles.

The field tile is Zipline Alloy with statement triangle features in Color Tone Crescendo and Color Duet Assez. Coveney Interlay installed the cleverly designed layout creating break out zones. The updated space will ensure reverberation times are minimized, sound is absorbed and workplace comfort and performance is improved.

By selecting EcoSoft® carpet tiles there may be no need for additional acoustic wall treatments, saving money and achieving quieter spaces. EcoSoft® delivers many benefits and is made from discarded PET water bottles. It is PVC free, soft underfoot, thermally efficient and scores maximum points on the Mat 2 calculator.
