Improving the room acoustics in schools and kindergartens
Noise control in kindergartens / schools
High noise levels caused by prolonged reverberation times interfere with the children’s concentration and learning success. Speech is more difficult to understand and background noises such as coughing or the sounds caused by turning pages or moving chairs etc. remain in the room for too long, further raising the noise level. Poor room acoustics make listening more tiring and interfere with mental information intake and processing, leading to early exhaustion.
In turn, optimized room acoustics add to a pleasant learning environment and reduce the stress for teachers and children/students alike. This makes it easier for the students to pay attention and hence boosts their learning success.
Reducing the noise level in playrooms and daycare centers
High noise levels in daycare centers affect children and nursery personnel alike. Poor room acoustics negatively impact language acquisition and are an additional stress factor for children suffering from attention deficit syndromes.
Yet, noise levels can be reduced effectively by means of sound absorbers fixed on walls and/or ceilings. This simple measure shortens the reverberation time and improves speech intelligibility, ensuring a much more pleasant environment that makes it possible to focus on work or play. A room with minimized reverberation is subjectively perceived as considerably less noisy.
