Loud Gym Space

Scott Van Worth, Superintendant for the Soper Independent School District, reached out to NetWell Noise Control for help in lowering the noise levels in the gymnasium at Soper High School. Scott was fielding complaints about the level of crowd noise, the lack of clarity to voice during gym class, and the inability of the space to host a variety of events due to poor room acoustics.

Echo Control

NetWell responded with its standard request for room dimensions, and in turn, generated the Room Analysis report which defined the framework for the treatment and quoted out the project. As is the case with any gym with an exposed joist metal deck ceiling, acoustic VET Baffles were quoted for the project as they are a class A fire rated and more cost effective per square foot than the perimeter wall panels. The baffles are designed to capture and convert the echoes from the gym, delivering back greater clarity to the original sound and lower crowd noise.

VET Baffles are the most popular sound baffle we sell. They are Class A fire rated, waterproof, easy to self-install, durable, and one of the most cost-effective ways to add the absorption coefficients that large open spaces need to control excessive sound wave reverberations. These soundproofing panels simply free hang in rows and columns, spread across the expanse of a ceiling, to trigger a dramatic collapse in echo. By removing the background noise from the room, clarity to original sound is restored.

Sound Values Back

As you can see in the images, Soper selected the red VET Baffles to match to their school colors, using the sound absorbing VET Baffles to not only lower noise exposure levels in the room but deliver continued school pride back to the students. The baffles combine to absorb up to 80% of the unwelcome echo in the gym, delivering back a more user-friendly space.
