Polyflor / Northampton Academy

Education Center in Northampton, U.K.
Acoustix Forest FX / American Oak

26,910 SQFT of acoustic flooring from Polyflor was chosen to help improve the acoustic performance of Northampton Academy as part of the secondary school’s refurbishment project.

The classic, wood effect American Oak design from the Acoustix Forest fx PUR range was installed along corridors and staircases on multiple levels at Northampton Academy by local flooring contractor Absolute Coverings Ltd who are based in Silverstone, Northamptonshire.


Suitable for demanding, high traffic commercial environments like large schools, this acoustic floorcovering produces an impact sound reduction level of 19dB, reducing the transfer of noise throughout this modern school building that accommodates approximately 1400 pupils.

Acoustix Forest fx range features a closed-cell foam backing to provide its 19dB reduction in impact sound within interiors, that exceeds UK Building Regulation requirements of 17dB.

Jed Queally, Business Manager at Northampton Academy comments,

​" We specifically wanted an acoustic floorcovering to help create a more peaceful learning environment for our pupils, where excessive noise from foot traffic around classrooms would be less of a distraction "
