We are immersed in the depths of this hot summer but, in a few weeks, students will return to the classroom in schools and universities. By then the problems of acoustics that many of these spaces have must be solved to ensure that the explanations of teachers and doctors are acoustically intelligible for students.
But do you have enough time? Can you assume the cost and the time to undertake a reform in the classrooms of your school with poor acoustics? No, you certainly do not have time to do major acoustic conditioning work in your classrooms, but yes there is something you can do immediately to solve your problem: installing decorative acoustic panels, which are hung like pictures, in the classroom.
One of the main acoustic problems in schools and universities is reverberation. Reverberation is the permanence of sound beyond the time required to properly hear and understand a message. Explained in a more technical manner, “reverberation time” is the time it takes for the sound to decay by 60 dB as received stood the sound emission source stops. In short, it is an annoying acoustic effect, even more so in rooms intended for listening to music or speeches: theatres, meeting rooms, auditoriums, halls, recording studios, offices, etc.
To correct reverberation, acoustic panels or sound-absorbent wood panels are used to cover ceilings and walls. But if you need quicker action, you can opt for installing decorative acoustic panels for classrooms. Basically we are talking about acoustic pictures comprised of decorative acoustic panels that can be silk-screened with the picture of your choice to absorb the sound and improve the acoustics of a room. The installation is fast and so simple that it can be carried out by the client.
