Ecophon - Taking the din out of school dinners

Everyone involved with the Government’s school construction programme will have heard of Building Bulletin 93 and will understand the importance of good acoustics in the teaching environment.  At Wren’s Nest Primary School in Dudley, it was the school hall, that the problem of noise manifested itself.

Lining the ceiling to the main hall using Ecophon’s Super G tiles has, however, alleviated the situation to such an extent that even the children notice the difference.  

Super G was chosen on its own grid system to suit the lighting and to avoid tiles being dislodged by the ball games during PE lessons. 

When it was done some of the children actually thought they were having problems with their ears because the sound level was so different afterwards! Staff and pupils noticed the reduction in noise level, which used to be dreadful, has now improved greatly,  says The Bursar at Wrens Nest Primary.
