Noisy School Gym Solution

In the heart if Texas, Milan middle school had a noise reverberation problem typical to institution spaces such as gyms, cafeterias, auditorium and general purpose rooms. We all associate the echoes, noise and reverberation of sound with gyms, pool areas & large auditorium / multipurpose rooms and certainly can relate to the high noise levels in these types of rooms. In this middle school gymnasium (a problem in virtual all gymnasiums), the sound bounces off the walls more than the basketballs. Due to the volume and space in these rooms and lack of noise absorbents, the noise grows and creates echoes and reverberation seriously impeding speech intelligibility. When the gym was in use, the conversation next to you was indistinguishable from the conversation across the floor.

4 ways to achieve effective noise control

4 ways to achieve effective noise reduction:

Sound Insulation. With this approach to noise control, the goal is to introduce a solid barrier to the environment that helps lessen the reverberation of the sound waves. Much like the insulation of a house helps keeps warm air in and cold air out (and vice versa depending on the seasons), this approach effectively mitigates the transference of sound within a defined area by adding materials which block the transfer of sound waves. High-density materials such as concrete, steel, and stone are often used in this application because of they are difficult to penetrate.

Reaching Acoustic Harmony & Dealing with Noise Control within Churches & Houses of Worship

Noise Absorption and Acoustic Problems with Noise within Houses of Worship

Houses of Worship acoustics require special attention and knowledge to the nuances of voluminous spaces, hard surfaces, especially in the new architectural designs of today’s buildings. This excessive space is wonderfully impressive but allows for significant reverberation, which we are familiar with as echoes. Reverberation can reduce speech legibility and can make otherwise good church sound systems sound awkward. Imagine your ear being bombarded with an array of sounds at different decibels repeatedly served in waves. These sound waves maintain a surprising amount of energy and continue on absorbing and interfering with other sound waves.

Home Engraving & Metal Working Shop Noise

Hi, I own a small rotary engraving shop in my home. The noise level when cutting plastics, steel, and alumium is very high.The shop is 1000 sq feet, located in the basement and includes an office area. It can be very difficult to talk with customers on the phone when jobs are running.

Quite an obvious and common problem as noise levels can reach very high levels with rotary engraving. To best help I would need to know more specifics about the layout of space, use of tools and aesthetics required but here are some suggestions for you.

Guaranteed Office Noise Control through Soundproofing Materials

Acoustics studies the sound and how it behaves in various environments. Sound effects such as absorption, reflection, refraction or interference are also studied by acoustics. The broad acceptance of the term ‘acoustics’ refers to all the aspects of sound. Until not long ago, the notions ‘acoustics’ and ‘sound’ referred to waves and elastic vibrations that humans could hear. However, in the twentieth century, the development of technology and science has led to the broadening of the field of acoustics, in that it now comprises aspects not directly related to the hearing process, such as intensities and frequencies which are above or below the audible limits of humans.
