School starting back up in September of each year brings teachers and faculty back into classrooms to prepare for the coming school year. Most classrooms are built with hard reflective surfaces that include brick, block, wood, glass and metal. These surfaces reflect background noise, spiking echoes over the top of the original voice of the teacher. This renders the room unfriendly, and produces a poor learning environment for the students. As a result, voices are strained, the learning curve drops, and teachers return home each day exhausted.
The soundproofing treatment or a classroom is easy. By anchoring a simple set of sound panels to the perimeter walls and/or ceiling in the space, the echoes can be caught, captured and converted out of the room. Acoustic panels are easy to self install, they are class A fire rated, decorative, durable and can even double as bulletin boards. See the FabricTack Panels available through NetWell Noise Control. Sound panels like these can be placed where the teacher wants, and will combine to pick the echoes out of the room to deliver back greater clarity to original sound. As a result, teachers are refreshed, students grades improve, and the quality of the educational process is restored.
Sound Panels can also be hung as Ceiling Clouds from the ceiling where available wall space is limited. The key to the success of soundproofing a classroom is to ensure that the right amount of material is introduced into the space. That number is based on the size, shape and surface textures of the room, and can be calculated using a simple Room Analysis by NetWell Noise Control.
