Gym Panels Control Noise

Gymnasiums are typically large, over sized, shoe box shaped rooms composed of 3 sets of parallel surfaces.  As sound fills the cavity of the space, the noise generated is caused by the echoes reflecting off these surfaces.  To lower the noise levels within a gym, sound panels can be wall or ceiling mounted within the space designed to capture and convert the echoes, much like a sponge sapping up water.   The key to the success of soundproofing a gym lies in targeting the right quantities of the sound panels, ensuring that we do not under treat the space.   If you have a loud gym, there is a free Room Analysis performed by Netwell Noise Control that is designed to target the right quantities for you based on your gyms size, shape and surface textures.

For more information on solving your noise issues in a gym, or any other space, contact NetWell at 1-800-368-9355 or submit their Room Analysis worksheet online.

Loud Cafeteria

Screaming kids?  Well, sound proofing treatments do not make the kids less loud, and don't be told otherwise!   But there is good news...sound panel treatments WILL make your cafeteria less loud.   Sound panels, wall or ceiling mounted in your cafeteria, will combine to capture echoes.  In other words, the noise you experience in a loud cafeteria is a combination of the original sound of the kids, and the additional echoes banging off the perimeter surfaces in the room.   By anchoring a set of sound panels around the room, the echoes are caught and converted out of the space, lowering the level of energy reflecting back into the room.   So, yes, the kids will still be loud, but no, the room will not be.

Solving Gym Noise

Gymnasium's are typically oversized shoe-box shaped rooms defined by hard reflective ceilings, floors and walls.   The result is a less than user-friendly space, as echoes carry throughout the room causing spikes in decibel levels and blurred sound signals that ruin the space and it's ability to host functions.   The answer?   Slow the echoes down, and the room will restore to premium quality sound.

Blocking Common Wall Noise

The studs in your wall are the equal to a string pulled tight between two coffee cans.   Vibrations will carry through the studs to the adjoining room and deliver air born noise.  To properly combat sound bleed through your wall, you have two goals.  First, add density to the wall, this will impede vibration.  Much like placing the flat of your hand against a wine glass, guitar string or tuning fork.   If the object can't vibrate, it won't produce sound.   And second, disconnect (cut the string) the wall

Onsite Acoustical Consulting

Controlling noise levels within a room does NOT require onsite experts in the field of soundproofing.   The mere size, shape and surface textures that make up the room can easily help calculate for the trained expert what is called a Sabin count.   Yes, that's a technical term, but not to worry.   It's measuring the level of absorption taking place in the space, and defining the level of additional absorption that the space needs in order to collapse your background noise back to more comfortable levels.   95% of all acoustical projects are dealing with nothing more than nuisance noise, and this process can easily define both the starting point and
