Product 5: Forbo Flooring Marmoleum Decibel
Funny name, serious flooring...no kidding. Forbo Flooring, a leader in natural linoleums, brought out the big guns on this product. Marmoleum Decibel is an upgrade from its' predecessor Marmoleum, as it sports a hefty impact sound insulation of 17 decibels--11 more than Marmoleum the first. It's also bacteriostatic, meaning it inhibits the growth of bacteria on its surface; it is ideal for hospitals. Various patterns, colors, textures make Decibel a versatile choice of flooring. It can be ordered in a dressy crocodile texture, a more casual marbled surface, or can be cut in custom shapes (ie, school mascots and company logos). Marmoleum Decibel is completely natural and can be recycled. Forbo Flooring is a USGBC member. For more information, see the sights at http://www.forboflooringna.com/default.aspx .
