With a series of rooflights and plasterboard walls, the reverberation time in this student computer lab was uncomfortably long before our installation.
Student density, and a quiet learning environment meant that noises made in the space were particularly disruptive to students and their learning.
Key was to reduce the reverberation time in the space to a level that would negate the noise propelled by hard surfaces around the room.
Class A acoustic absorbers from Ecophon were strategically places on available ceiling surfaces. The off-white colour allowed the panels to blend into the space.
The installation reduced the length of noise reflection from an uncomfortable 2.53 seconds, to an appropriate time of 1.12 seconds.
