Researchers at Heriot Watt University have been investigating the acoustic quality of school buildings. Research with acoustic-ceiling company Ecophon has seen the company overwhelmed with schools desperate to solve acoustic problems, the greatest of which is the school hall, where noise levels aren't only detrimental to tuition, but can also be a healthy hazard with sound levels of over 100dB. One school in Hampshire found that the use of Ecophon's acoustic wall and ceiling panels reduced reverberation times from 2.5 to 0.6 seconds.
