About Your Noise

Fellowship Halls host social gatherings that require ease in communication.   But as crowds gather, voices begin to reflect off perimeter wall, ceiling, and floor surfaces, generating sound wave reflections that take the room over.   As the echoes carry, the background noise begins to blur original sound signals, making speech difficult and communication strains. In turn, the patrons begin to raise their voices up and over the level of noise, to try to hold conversation, and the room spikes to uncomfortable noise levels.   The key to the sound values you are seeking for your Fellowship Hall lies in capturing and converting these echoes from your space.

Your Soundproofing Solution

To improve the sound quality inside your Fellowship Hall, a set of sound absorbing tiles can be surface mounted around your perimeter wall or ceiling space.   Wall mounted sound panels combine to capture and convert the unwanted echoes from the room, dropping your level of background noise, raising greater clarity to original sound and easing conversation and the ability to communicate.   The key to the success of the soundproofing treatment is to ensure you do not under treat the space, which is what our Room Analysis is designed to answer for you.   Use the link at the top or bottom of this page to submit your room’s dimensions, and in turn, we will advise back on quantities needed to trigger the sound values back you are seeking.   The goal is to not undertreat the room.

Alternative Product Options

A popular version of the Fabric Panel for a Fellowship Hall project is to convert the panel system to a Ceiling Cloud.   This is the same product, but rigged with different hardware that would allow you to “Float” the panels mechanically off your ceiling surface.   This keeps the panels up and out of the way from the kids. Regardless of panel place, your sound values will be met, the Clouds are a popular option for Fellowhip Halls.

Why We Love The Fabric Panel

We have been placing sound panels into Fellowship Hall for more than 25 years, and the Fabric Panel has been the treatment of choice each and every time.   The panels are durable, easy to self install, colorful, fire rated, and highly effective at absorbing the unwanted echoes in your room.   Note that the 1” thick panel is the standard for your Fellowship Hall, unless you put live musical instruments in there, then upgrade to the 2” thickness for a better performance value stemming from low frequency bass tones.

Most Commonly Asked Questions

How Can You Design a New Fellowship Hall for Premium Sound Quality?

The goal for designing a soundproof fellowship hall is to create a space that is both easy to clean and that will enhance communication. Since the purpose of this environment is to support social gatherings, it’s important to consider installing sound panels during the fellowship hall design process. Tall, open ceilings, non-parallel walls, and an even distribution of sound panels (wall- or ceiling-mounted) will maximize the acoustic values within the room and ensure a more user-friendly space.

How Can You Soundproof an Existing Fellowship Hall?

Around 95% of our clients are dealing with existing finished rooms that need to be retrofitted with sound panels. When soundproofing a fellowship hall, the goal is to simply lower the level of background noise to deliver greater conversation clarity. By installing a set of ceiling- or wall-mounted sound panels, you can more effectively capture echoes in your space, thereby improving your acoustics.

Why Do Seniors Have a Hard Time Communicating in Church?

Hearing loss affects approximately one-third of adults who are 61 to 70 years old, and more than 80% of those who are older than 85. Special care must be taken when soundproofing a fellowship hall so that those suffering from hearing loss can fully enjoy the company of their congregation. Without sound panels, your space will produce higher levels of background noise, which could drive seniors away from their house of worship.

How Do Poor Room Acoustics Drive Members Away From Their Church?

Seniors have a hard time communicating effectively, due largely to the fact that most people over 60 suffer some form of hearing loss. If your church lacks the proper sound panels, your fellowship hall will be filled with echoes which will make conversations especially difficult for seniors in your congregation. By not soundproofing your church, you could drive members away from your congregation.

How Do Sound Panels Make a Fellowship Hall More User-Friendly?

Fellowship halls are social halls that host a variety of events and gatherings for large groups. As the room fills with people, their voices begin to reflect around the room, elevating decibel rates to uncomfortable levels. This increased background noise can strain communication. Acoustic Fabric Panels will capture and convert these echoes to produce a soundproof fellowship hall. In turn, background noise will collapse as original sound clarity is restored. With these panels in place, you can greatly improve acoustic capabilities, making your space more highly-functional.

How Many Sound Panels Does Your Fellowship Hall Need and Where Should You Put Them?

The key to successful sound panel treatment is less about placement, and more about the type of coverage the room receives based on its size, shape and surface textures. Give NetWell a call at 1-800-638-9355 with your room size. We’ll help you determine the right approach and calculate the amount needed for your wall-mounted sound panels. You can also submit a Room Analysis, and we can calculate your coverage amounts off of that. The acoustic Fabric Panels are available in 60 colors and can be cut to the size of your choice.

Why Are Sound Panels on a Ceiling More Popular Than on a Wall?

Mounting Fabric Panels on perimeter walls in a fellowship hall leaves the sound panels exposed to sticky fingers and accidental dents and dings from the traffic of people. Ceiling-mounted sound panels provide much more protection because you can produce a more durable installation by stretching the sound panels out across the expanse of the ceiling. See our Ceiling Clouds featured on our website. Again, mount the panels on your wall or ceiling. As long as the quantities are appropriate based on your room size, your noise reduction needs will be met.

What Are the Benefits of Using NetWell’s Sound Panels in Your Fellowship Hall?

Our sound panels for fellowship halls will prevent conversation from being strained. Without the treatment, background noise will become distracting and loud, which will discourage members from attending social events in the space. However, with the sound panel treatment, people can better enjoy conversation which will help you retain members and grow your congregation.
