Let them sing with Silento acoustic flooring

Music and performing arts students at the City of Bath College can sing, dance and act without disrupting their fellow pupils now that Silento acoustic flooring from Itec Contract Floors has been installed in the dedicated drama centre.

Fitted by Peter James Flooring and distributed by Baileys of Bristol, 200m2 of Silento in Bretagne 744 was chosen to provide sound absorption in the Music & Performing Arts centre of this vibrant Further Education College located in Bath city centre.

Offering 18dB of impact sound insulation, Silento allows the music students to exercise their vocal chords and the trainee dramatists hone their craft without fear of interrupting their fellow learners’ studies.

As Leon Hosaka, Premises Officer at the college explains, “Silento was the obvious choice for this part of the college. Due to the nature of the music and performing arts courses, we needed flooring that would absorb excess noise so as not to disrupt the surrounding classrooms, study areas and offices.

“Aside from the acoustic benefits, we also wanted flooring that was stylish and in keeping with the college’s modern look and feel. With its authentic oak wood-effect aesthetic, Silento in Bretagne 744 truly exceeded our expectations, proving that high-performance acoustic flooring from Itec is more than just functional.”

Inherently resilient, Silento is ideal for busy areas and can withstand the impact of heavy footfall. Featuring HyperGuard+® PUR, this flooring remains robust for longer and is very easy to clean and maintain.

“We are very happy with the performance of this flooring, so much so that we have installed a further 50m2 of Silento in colour Salzburg 798 in the photography darkroom at the college,” continues Leon Hosaka.

“This is an area that requires intense concentration, so the sound-deadening properties of Silento are of great benefit to the photography students. With a range of colours and finishes, Silento has proved that it is a comprehensive and versatile collection that suits a variety of locations.”
