The American Society of Testing Materials will soon release a new standard that it says looks at flooring differently than before.

ASTM’s committee on building and environmental acoustics will soon release the E3133 test method, which will help flooring manufacturers test the quietness of their products, the organization says.

In the announcement, member Jerry Lilly, President of JGL Acoustics Inc., said that, prior to the E3133, all standards related to flooring noise have focused on noise levels radiated down into the floor and space containing a floor product. This standard, however, addresses the living space that contains the product.

“The new test method determines the level of impact noise radiated by various flooring products mounted on a suitable substrate in a laboratory,” ASTM said in a statement.
