In the world of multi-story buildings, few things can be more frustrating than the constant transmission of impact noise between floors. The sound of footsteps, dropping objects, or even conversations can disrupt the peace and privacy of residents. This is where Dura Undercushions, a leading name in soundproofing solutions, comes to the rescue.

In this article, we'll explore how Dura’s rubber underlayment can effectively address impact noise concerns in multi-story buildings and what kind of results can be expected.


Understanding Impact Noise

Impact noise, often known as structure-borne noise, is the noise generated by objects impacting surfaces and the vibrations caused by such impacts. In multi-story buildings, this noise can readily propagate through the structure, causing disturbances to those residing on different floors. The common culprits are footsteps, moving furniture, and even children at play.
