Loud Gym Space

Gymnasiums are typically large, oversized shoe-box shaped rooms filled with unwanted sound reflections that render the room useless as a teaching facility. Seen here is the gymnasium located at the Encana Christina Lake Kids Camp in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Their director, Simon Cook, had contacted NetWell Noise Control seeking help in producing a more favorable acoustic environment in their gym. The sound reflections were so bad in the room that students, parents, and teachers were all complaining about the use of the space. The echoes were intolerable, the room was uncomfortable, the teachers and coaches were unable to communicate with the kids.

Sound panels on gym walls lower noise levels

Sound Panels

Simon Cook submitted to NetWell Noise Control the dimensional size, shape and surface textures of the gym in question. In turn, NetWell introduces Encana to the use of the popular Fabric Panels to be wall mounted around the upper perimeters of the room as shown here. The panels are durable, fire rated, colorful, self-installable, and will collapse the unwanted sound reflections down to manageable levels. With the information supplied by Simon, NetWell was able to determine the overall square foot totals that should be introduced into the room to trigger the desired sound effects. In this case, 40 panels measuring 4’x8′ were shipped.

Sound Absorbing Fabric Acoustic Panels


As a result of the sound panel treatment, excessive noise levels dropped dramatically inside the gym. Echoes were captured and converted from the room, leaving behind greater clarity to the original sound and a lower overall volume of noise in the room. The gym was so much more user-friendly and now able to host a variety of events in the space that were otherwise hosted elsewhere due to the poor room acoustics in the space prior to the installation of their sound panels.
