Carpet used in Multi Family collects dust, dirt, and pet hair. Those things, if not cleaned up properly, can cause some serious health issues. Children, for example, tend to put their hands on dirty carpets and into their mouths. They can easily end up sick because of that. Air circulating over a dirty carpet can cause breathing problems, like asthma. Some heat registers are located right along the floor and sweep air up from the carpet. Carpet can also be costly, and Spectrim’s Featherwalk is a maintenance free option that solves the following problems:

The Delta IIC (ΔIIC) shows the "IIC improvement value" of the product without the floor assembly. The testing is performed on a bare 6" concrete slab. To calculate the Delta IIC of Acoustical Flooring, the IIC of the concrete slab is subtracted from the IIC value of the luxury vinyl. The Delta IIC is really the more transparent number because it shows by how many decibels the Acoustical Flooring reduces the sound transmission. It Is also the simplest number to compare across manufacturers or product lines, because it gives you the most accurate representation of a product's ability to reduce noise transmission in a finished building.
As you can see from the information and due diligence, FeatherWalk can be a good solution for those who want to eliminate the need to clean, replace carpet, and increase their Net Operating income while reducing their operation expenses.
