Hotham Primary School contacted Respace Acoustics for an acoustic solution to their sports hall, with added custom design.
Hotham Primary School in Putney teaches ages 4-11. The sports hall is always in regular use for a number of activities. However, the rooms acoustics were very poor due to the high reverberation time. This caused constant speech and noise echo which made the hall a very difficult area for both teachers and pupils to play and learn in.
Respace Acoustics installed impact resistant acoustic wall panels to reduce the reverberation time and lower the speech and sound echo to a comfortable level. The wall panels are impact resistant so hard ball games can still be played with no effect or damage to the panels.
As shown in the above photo, not only were the wall panels acoustically beneficial and fully impact resistant, they were also custom designed and tailored to the school requirements. Using the colors red, yellow, white an blue, the acoustic artwork provided a modern, funky, attractive design to the room.
Through the successful installation the sports hall can now be used for other activities as the custom acoustic panels have achieved a maximum sports hall acoustics solution. The hall is now used for teaching, assemblies, exams and plays. The room has become a perfect listening environment and clarity of sound has been achieved.
