Ecophon - Acoustic problems in schools?

Many schools suffer from poor acoustics. Several research projects have proven that high noise levels in classrooms lead to poor concentration, disruptive behaviour and high degrees of stress for both students and teachers. This is clearly not supportive to a positive educational environment.

Under Part ‘E’ of the Building regulations (Building Bulleting 93) There is a requirement to achieve specified reverberation times in teaching and learning spaces, including:

· Classrooms

· Music Rooms

· Corridors

· Assembly Halls

· Dining / Canteen Areas

· Technology & Science Labs

· Lecture Theatres

· Sports Halls

In addition, compliance to the Disability Discrimination Act often leads to acoustic treatment. The problem of poor acoustics can easily be solved by installing sound absorbing material. Ecophon are manufacturers and market leaders of acoustic suspended ceiling and wall panel systems, we can offer services including site visits, technical advice, acoustic calculations, and CAD design.
