Acoustics and Learning: How to improve the learning environment?

By |2021-03-02T12:01:40+00:00November 8th, 2020|Reverberation Time, BB93, School Acoustics|

Our acoustic environment has a profound impact on how we process and absorb information, both through the affect on our ability to hear and also our ability to concentrate. People can only put up with noise for so long before it becomes extremely annoying and disrupts their cognitive learning process. Noise can be a big problem with open plan classrooms, halls and libraries, with high levels of noise pollution coming from various sources at the one time.  Acoustics and Learning The [...]

Demystifying Acoustics – The Resonics Guide to Reverberation Time

By |2023-01-24T16:24:46+00:00January 1st, 2020|Acoustics, Reverberation Time|

Our Guide to Room Acoustics page covers an array of information ranging from the causes of poor acoustics to the difference between Soundproofing and Sound absorption. The aim of the page is to give our customers a brief but better understanding of acoustics and demystify some of the more complicated concepts that surround the subject. One of the key principles that is central to what we do and how we do it is 'Reverberation Time' (RT).  Below is a short, but useful guide [...]

5 Of The Best Acoustic Solutions For Sports Halls

By |2024-04-06T07:16:30+00:00August 17th, 2015|Acoustic Panels, Reverberation Time, School Acoustics|

Sports halls need special consideration when they are being acoustically treated - meaning that the right combination of acoustic panels must be chosen. This is for four reasons: Sports halls usually have particularly poor acoustics due to their designs: high impact surfaces like concrete and brick are highly noise reflective and lead to prolonged reverberation times. Sports halls are usually large cubes with no soft surfaces - making them harsh sound environments. Parallel surfaces, typically far away from each other, mean noise is efficiently propelled around [...]
