Sound will move from one room to another though direct and indirect paths, putting obstacles in its way will not stop sound but will simply make it change direction. In some situations, this means that it will simply go around a soundproofing system, an effect known as flanking. Karma offers it very own solution to flanking with the Acoustic Perimeter Strip.
The Acoustic Perimeter strip is a high-performance flanking strip; it comprises of a cross-linked, closed cell polyethylene foam strip which is placed around the edges of any acoustic floor system. The perimeter strips are fitted between the acoustic flooring system and the wall. To get the best results, the skirting boards should be applied after the flanking strips have been applied.
