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.
