Subject: Re: Carpet in physics labs


we had a lab room with carpeting, it made the room much quieter, especially
with all the computers but it didn't last very long and developed bubbles and
bumps that people would trip over. Newer computers are very quiet and we
decided to go back to tile when we redid the room.
