In a room with bare, reflective surfaces, sound bounces back and forth, distorting direct sound and serving to drastically diminish our listening experience.
Felt Right tiles have an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) of 35 and can absorb as much sound as one-inch thick polyurethane foam, a popular sound dampening material. In other words, installing Felt Right tiles on a single wall of your living or working space will noticeably improve the overall accoustical experience.

Do Felt Right tiles reduce sound transmission from or through a wall?
Yes, Felt Right tiles will definitely reduce and muffle sound transmission from an adjacent space and we have multiple customer reviews highlighting this benefit. However, we have not fully tested and quantified Felt Right tiles Sound Transmission Coefficient (STC), so we want to be careful not to over-promise in this area.
What if I want to add new tiles to an existing design?
Certain issues need to be considered if you are planning to add new tiles to an existing design.
First, in May, 2020, we changed finished tile dimensions slightly to improve quality. For example, 12" tiles became 11 7/8." This is not noticeable except when trying to add new tiles to an existing design. So if your existing design dates before May of 2020, contact customer service before ordering new tiles.
Second, we do experience some dye-lot variations in certain colors which can be noticeable when a new tile is placed next to an old one. This is most evident with some of the grey colors. If you are ordering new tiles that will go next to existing tiles, just give us a quick heads-up so we can help make sure you don't experience significant dye-lot issues.
