CONTROLLING NOISE IN GYMNASIUMS

STOP THE ACOUSTIC BOUNCE

Indoor athletic events are noisy. By controlling the acoustic environment, we can improve the game and other activities.

THE PROBLEM WITH CONTROLLING NOISE IN GYMNASIUMS

Gymnasiums and multipurpose rooms are some of the most used and most populated areas on a school campus. With activities such as physical education classes, sporting events, and school assemblies, noise can quickly feed on itself and build to boisterous levels.

In order to accommodate a wide range of student and community activities, gymnasiums are typically designed as large open spaces with high ceilings, wood or tiled floors, and painted concrete walls.

These same traits however contribute to excessive reverberation and poor acoustics. The hard, reflective surfaces commonly found in gyms and multipurpose rooms cause the sound waves to bounce around until they eventually decay or are absorbed. By using the right balance between absorption and reflection using strategically placed acoustic wall panels and baffles, a more functional and enjoyable space is created.

INTELLIGENT ACOUSTIC SOLUTIONS FOR CONTROLLING NOISE IN GYMNASIUMS

With many adjacent hard surfaces, gyms are prime locations for harsh reflections and reverberation. By adding a calculated amount of absorption systems to the gym walls or ceiling, we can control reverberation time and improve the experience of the space. High-impact absorption options further enhance the longevity of our solutions.
