Lancaster, Pa. -- Ecore now offers a continuing education Unit (CEU) titled “Flooring Design with Acoustics in Mind.” Upon completion of this course, architects and designers will have a better understanding of sound, acoustic ratings and flooring solutions that can help to reduce noise levels in various applications, including healthcare, education, multi-family, hospitality and fitness. This CEU also addresses acoustic problems that can arise when moving away from carpet to smooth surfaces in different settings.

“Acoustics is complicated,” said Bo Barber, vice president of sales with Ecore. “This CEU is our effort to educate architects and designers about all the challenges related to noise in the built environment. At Ecore, our surfacing can have a profound effect on impact sound and structure-borne vibration. This aligns with our commitment to create floors that do more with regard to acoustics, ergonomics and safety.”

After completion of the CEU, participants will be able to recognize potential sound issues to address when specifying flooring surfaces, use acoustic ratings to compare different surfacing solutions to correct problems, and identify products and technologies to create optimal acoustics for different types of spaces and settings. This CEU is a registered with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems and the Interior Design Continuing Education Council (IDCEC).
