How To Reduce Classroom Acoustics:

When it comes to learning in a classroom, hearing and understanding what the teacher is saying is vital to learning and obtaining the knowledge. A noisy classroom not only makes it harder to hear, but it also makes it much easier to get distracted. However, noise in the classroom can be more than students talking. Read how we can help with our acoustic absorption panels. 


Background Noise and Reverberation

The two primary factors that contribute to poor acoustics are background noise and reverberation. Reverberation describes how sounds travel, sound waves can bounce off desks, walls, ceilings… if certain sounds do this it can become very loud and hard to hear very quickly. Background noise such as other classrooms or maintenance workers mowing the grass or operating vehicles.


Problems Regarding Poor Acoustics

If a classroom has a high level of noise problems for students such as; understanding speech, maintaining attention and concentration, reading and behaviour.

Having a quiet learning space is essential for productive and efficient learning.


Acoustic Panels

Implementing acoustic panels into the learning environment can drastically change the reverberation and acoustic levels. Having the ability to instantly change the layout and sound level of your space with acoustic absorption panels allows sounds to be significantly reduced.

Not only do acoustic absorption panels benefit the students’ learning, teachers won’t  have to raise their voice to capture the attention of the class. It truly allows for the best possible learning environment.
