Dutch company Bolidt is improving the cruise experience with its synthetic flooring offerings. Its use of innovative materials provides cruise operators with durable and environmentally friendly floor coverings that have sound insulating qualities. 

Today’s cruise ships offer guests the chance to participate in multiple activities throughout the day and night, which produces a lot of noise. However, Bolidt is helping operators to combat this issue with its various flooring solutions that give cruise passengers the peace they need in their cabins. 

“No one hears the joggers doing their early morning rounds on the Bolideck Select Soft jogging track,” said Jacco van Overbeek, director of Bolidt’s Maritime Division. “And if you sleep underneath one of the restaurants onboard, you won’t hear a thing thanks to Bolideck Future Teak, no matter how long the diners are burning the midnight oil.”

However, cruise lines are setting even more demanding targets with ships offerings new amenities such as nightclubs and basketball courts. Bolidt has been working to enhance the sound-proofing qualities of its decking for almost 25 years. For example, Bolideck Future Teak is widely used among cruise operators because it meets tough sound inhibiting tests and environmental protection requirements.

“We are responding to these requirements and are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible,” said van Overbeek. “By continuing to innovate, we have managed to succeed time and again in fulfilling the wishes of both passengers and cruise companies alike.”
