Acoustic Solutions Help Soundproof School Hallways, Gymnasiums or Lobby Areas

In educational settings today, creating a peaceful learning environment is the cornerstone of student’s academic success. One key aspect most schools overlook is the acoustics of their hallways, gymnasiums or lobby Areas. Noisy areas of the school will affect classrooms adjacent to high traffic areas.

Thanks to acoustic wood panels, there’s a versatile and practical solution to remove or improve noise pollution in schools. Let’s explore how acoustic solutions can help remove noise from schools.

What are the Common Acoustic Problems in Schools?

Below discussed are some common acoustic problems that schools usually experience and, thus, need soundproofing panels to resolve them:

  • Reverberation: Reverberation makes it difficult for students to understand their teacher’s voices, or what other classmates are saying. As a result, to be heard, educators and students must raise their voices, which wears them out and reduces productivity.
  • Background noise: Background noise can distract students and disrupt their concentration & create a noisy environment. Places like the gymnasium or a large lobby can greatly benefit from acoustical panels to aid in high levels of noise pollution!
  • Lack of speech intelligibility: Chairs or desks scraping across linoleum classroom floors or overheads that reverberate are commonly experienced acoustic issues in schools. You can prevent all these acoustic problems by installing acoustical wood panelsas a critical design element in classrooms.
  • Poor sound absorption in floor and ceiling: Usually, hard surfaces are used for flooring and ceilings in classrooms to increase the durability quotient. However, these hard, flat surfaces reflect sound, making it difficult for students to comprehend their teachers’ instructions.

How Can Acoustical Wood Panels be Useful for School Hallways, Gymnasiums or Lobby Areas?

Here are the perks you can reap by installing wooden acoustic panels to remove noise from schools:

  • Enhancing sound absorption in classrooms’ floor and ceiling: If your classrooms have tiled flooring and ceiling, chances are they bounce back sound, leading to noisy spaces. You can reduce these noise levels by elevating the floor and ceiling’s sound absorption with acoustic wood ceiling panelsand carpeted floors.
  • Reducing noise and echoes in common areas: School gymnasiums, hallways, and cafeterias are the common areas that frequently generate a lot of noise and reverberation. You might significantly lessen noise and echoes by placing the acoustic panelsin these locations, leading to a calm atmosphere.
  • Customisation options: Schools can pick from various wooden veneer colours/species, HPL colors & patterns, and sizes of wood acoustic panels to match the current décor in your classroom or school and create calm, visually appealing learning environment.
  • Offers long-lasting durability: Wooden acoustic panels are highly durable. Installing Acoustical wood wall panels and ceiling panels in classrooms, common areas, and multipurpose rooms can increase your school’s durability quotient.
