Soundproof Carpet?

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

Out in the UK, a company called Manufacturer Desso claims to have developed a type of carpet with soundproofing properties. They hope it will be used in hotels, offices, and in multi-unit dwelling environments where sound is a particular concern.

The carpet is made with recycled polyester. Most carpets block 20-30% of sound decibels while this carpet is expected to block 30-40%. While we think it’s a great idea, we don’t think soundproof carpet is really going to give you the true soundproofing results you want to achieve. Proceed with caution!
