REDUCE IMPACT SOUND BY 20 DECIBELS


Impact noise is no longer an issue in the renovated multipurpose commercial building of real estate developer Koteng Eiendom AS in Trondheim, Norway. MasterTop 1327-20dB—the latest flooring technology from Master Builders Solutions—reduces impact sound by 20 decibels, while offering numerous sustainable benefits: low material consumption, high durability, and lower life cycle costs.

“The rooms themselves were very loud, so Koteng Eiendom AS decided to use MasterTop 1327-20dB to lower the noise.”

Tom Haarsaker, Manager, Minor Industriplast AS

Trondheim, Norway

A quiet and pleasant office environment is essential for efficient work. The property investment company Koteng Eiendom AS in Trondheim, Norway, chose MasterTop 1327-20dB for the refurbishment of the office rooms in its multipurpose building. “Since the building—and thus the floor—is from 1968, we had to deal with some challenges regarding the sound,” remembers Tom Haarsaker, manager of the flooring application company Minor Industriplast AS. But with MasterTop 1327-20dB, the company found the ideal solution for their project. The new flooring system significantly reduces impact noise, is comfortable under foot, extremely durable, and will look good throughout its service life.

The application plan was quite ambitious: 150 square meters of flooring had to be applied within five days. Since MasterTop 1327-20dB is a liquid-applied system, no cutting or gluing of rubber mats was necessary. This saved time and allowed the project to be completed as scheduled. With MasterTop 1327-20dB, application is easier and quicker, which means shorter downtimes and faster return to service compared to conventional sound-deadening systems. And there are more sustainable benefits, as application expert Tom Haarsaker says: “This aesthetic flooring solution is suitable for all kinds of rooms, producing no waste at all. We used up every square inch in the bucket.”

“It is ideal for schools, kindergartens, offices, and other public buildings.”

Hans-Kristian Knobel, Sales Manager Construction Systems, BASF AS

“The floor will last for at least 50 years,” explains expert Hans-Kristian Knobel from Master Builders Solutions. The reduced maintenance expense and high durability of the polyurethane-based flooring system lowers life cycle costs by up to seven percent. Because of its unique sound-deadening properties, it is the perfect choice to reduce noise within the office and thus perfectly meets the customer’s needs. “There is no alternative,” concludes Tom Haarsaker.
