Wool is increasingly used in the workplace to create a healthier and more productive environment for employees. The excellent acoustic properties of wool will help project a clear sound through the room and absorb other noises that could be distracting - a real benefit in noisy environments as background noise can reduce concentration by over 80%.
Wool carpet improves room acoustics in that it acts as a sound absorber and dampens any noise impact in a room, such as footsteps, furniture movement and dropped objects. In contrast, a hard, flat flooring surface is more likely to generate impact noise and act as a sound reflector which, in turn, intensifies the level of noise in a room.

Sound is transmitted by the vibration of air molecules. The porosity of the surface of carpets means that sound waves can penetrate the pile, rather than being reflected into the room as they would from a smooth surface.

Carpets are extremely effective sound absorbers because the individual fibres, pile tufts and underlay have different resonant frequencies at which they absorb sound. In this respect, wool carpets are particularly effective.
