Zouchkousti Rebound Aids Olympic Outfit

Share Article

With the tight 2012 Olympic schedule closing in, a lot must be said for the background work that helps bring sports on this scale to the rest of the world. Zouch Converters are proud to have been involved in a secondary project that has seen their conversions incorporated in the major international event.

Zouch Converters has been providing a full and comprehensive range of material and foam options for controlling noise and full sound dampening for a number of years now. Impressed with their service and hands-on ethic, a major insulation and acoustic floor company turned to Zouch following a tender which saw them win an Olympic bid to supply floor sound and vibration dampening for this year’s games.

The project involves a material called ZOUCHkousti rebound, a reconstituted tyre crumb rubber bound with polyurethane. ZOUCHkousti rebound gives a softer ‘under foot feel’ and reduces premature wear and tear often experienced as a result of shock, vibration and impact. Irrespective of the final layer to be placed on top of ZOUCHkousti rebound, sounds at the surface are significantly reduced.

Impact sound and thermal insulation are important prerequisites for the legacy buildings of the Olympic environment, particularly floors and walk ways that are prone to large footfall or extensive wear. Our custom-designed offering means that Zouch Converters, as a company, are at hand to work with engineers through the complicated design process. Zouch are proud to have contributed a fragment of engineered skill to the 2012 Olympics this year and fully back the GB team in all their sporting endeavours! With our technical knowledge and experience we can guarantee a ‘sound’ understanding of your acoustic requirements.
