  • cafeteria acoustics
    Cafeterias (3)

    Proper cafeteria design and layout should take into consideration what the room will sound like.

    Typically these large rooms have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and there is a need for noise reduction. Adding acoustical products such as hanging baffles or wall panels will increase speech intelligibility and reduce ambient noise creating a more pleasurable environment.

    These sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of the school cafeteria, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for noise reduction within the facility is addressed. These acoustical treatments are not only effective, but also aesthetically pleasing.

  • Acoustical Correct Music Room
    Music & Chorus Room Design (3)

    Proper band and chorus room design should take into consideration not only what the room will sound like, but also how the music in that room will affect the adjoining rooms.

    Typically these large rooms have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and tile floors and there is a need for sound absorption. Adding acoustical products such as ceiling tiles, acoustical foams or fabric wrapped wall panels will reduce ambient noise levels within the band or chorus rooms themselves. Sound diffusers and bass traps are also commonly used within band and chorus room design to acoustically tune the room.

    Finally, sound blocking materials can be incorporated into the design for the walls and ceiling of the room, so that the band and chorus rooms do not disturb adjoining classrooms. These acoustical materials should be planned into the design of the band and chorus rooms, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for noise reduction within the facility is addressed. These acoustical treatments are not only effective, but also aesthetically pleasing.

  • Classrooms (6)

    Classroom design and layouts with good acoustics help students understand what educators are teaching and allows students to have a better understanding of the lessons with fewer distractions.

    Proper design and layout in a classroom environment will add acoustical wall panels or acoustical ceiling tiles to break up the hard wall and ceiling surfaces used in typical classroom environment.

    If you have questions on classroom layout and design, please call our technical sales staff at 1-800-782-5742.

  • gym
    Gymnasiums & Multipurpose Rooms (7)

    The goal of noise reduction in gymnasiums and multipurpose rooms is to add sound absorption materials to reduce reverberation (echo) within the room.

    Typically these large rooms have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and there is a need for noise reduction.

    Adding noise control products such as hanging baffles or wall panels will increase speech intelligibility and reduce ambient noise during events for greater usage of the room.

    These sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of the gym or multipurpose room, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for noise reduction within the facility is addressed.

    Auditoriums (4)

    The goal of noise reduction in large auditoriums is to add sound absorption materials to reduce reverberation (echo) within the room.

    Typically auditoriums and theaters have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and there is a need for sound reduction. Adding sound control products such as acoustical wall panels will reduce ambient noise during events.

    These sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of the auditorium, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for sound reduction within the facility is addressed.
