Rotherfield School | Sports Hall Acoustics
Thursday, August 15th, 2013  | posted by

Re-space Acoustics were contacted by Rotherfield Primary School in London for a complete survey, assessment, design and installation acoustic treatment solution for their sports hall.

 

Respace Acoustics performed a survey and assessment on the sports hall to find the reverberation time was 3.20s. This was very high which was resulting the students and teachers having uncomfortable hearing when using the sports hall for activities.

 

Re-space Acoustics then implemented Ecophon Solo and Ecophon Super G panels onto the sports hall ceiling. This reduced the reverberation time to 1.10s,  which made a significant difference.

 

Ecophon Solo & Super G Panels

 

In result of this the students and teachers can now use the sports hall for more activities as the sound absorption is better causing less echo.

The Educational Sector is now showing increased interest in the implementation of acoustic products to a variety of areas within their schools.

 

The main three areas are as follows:

 

1. Sports Halls

 

2. Classrooms

 

3. Corridors

 

Respace has been awarded a few acoustic projects within the Educational Sector, see some case studies below:

 

 

1. Chichester High School | Sports Hall Acoustics

 

Chichester High School contacted Respace for an acoustic solution for their multi purpose hall. Before the installation the pupils and teachers were unable to use the hall comfortably as the acoustics were so poor causing loud speech and sound echo.

 

 

Ecophon Wall Panel C

 

Acoustic Products Used & Benefits Achieved:


1. Ecophon Wall Panel C installed

2. Reduced reverberation time & echo

3. Achieved magnificent sports hall acoustics result

4. Complimented existing colours & design

 

 

2. St Johns School | School Acoustics

 

Respace was contacted by St Johns School for an acoustic solution for their noisy classrooms, corridors and sports hall. The school had been experiencing real problems in terms of the acoustics in all parts of the school and decided to install and acoustic solution to the three areas.

 

Ecophon Acoustic Wall & Ceiling Panels

 

Acoustic Products Used & Benefits Achieved:


1. Ecophon Solo class A absorbent acoustic ceiling rafts, Ecophon Wall Panel A class A absorbent acoustic wall panelling and circulation corridor area installation of acoustic, British Gypsum ‘Gyptone’ ceiling system.

2. Massively reduced reverberation time & echo

3. Complimented existing colour and design scheme.

4. Achieved complete school acoustics success.

 

 

3. Ysgol Yr Hendre School | Sports Hall Acoustics

 

Respace were contacted by Ysgol Yr Hendre School in Wales for an acoustic solution for their sports hall. The sports hall needed to be used for a variety of activities but with the acoustics so poor, this could not be achieved.

Ecophon Resistant Wall Panels - Ecophon Super G

 

Acoustic Products Used & Benefits Achieved:


1. Ecophon impact resistant wall panels – Ecophon Super G

2. Reduced reverberation time & echo

3. Impact resistant so hard ball games can still be played

4. Complete sports hall acoustics achieved

 

 

4. Hotham Primary School | Sports Hall Acoustics

 

Hotham Primary School contacted Respace Acoustics for an acoustic solution to their sports hall, with added custom design. The sports hall was impossible to teach, learn and play in due to the high reverberation time and echo.

 

Impact Resistant Acoustic Wall Panel - In Custom Design

 

Acoustic Products Used & Benefits Achieved:


1. Impact resistance acoustic wall panels installed – Ecophon Super G

2. Reduced reverberation time & echo

3. Custom printed to add colour

4. Achieved complete sports hall acoustics, the hall can now be used for a variety of activities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Sports Hall Acoustics | Ysgol Yr Hendre School
Tuesday, February 14th, 2012  | posted by

Ysgol Yr Hendre School, Caernarfon School in Wales, required an acoustic solution for their sports hall. Respace Acoustics were contacted to recommend and provide this acoustic installation.

 

The well known school teaches the ages from 3-11, therefore the sports hall is an extremely noisy area when in use. With the reverberation time high causing speech and noise echo, the room was almost impossible to teach, play or learn in.

Acoustic Wall Panels

 

Respace recommended Impact resistant acoustic wall panelling/Ecophon super G. This would reduce the echo through lowering the reverberation time within the hall.

Acoustic Wall Panels

The wall panels installed were also impact resistant, therefore hard ball games could also be played in the hall with no chance of damage.

Acoustic Wall Panels

 

The sports hall acoustic installation was a success and the school were very happy with their new sound multi-purpose environment.

 


 

Sports Hall Acoustics | Hotham Primary School

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.

 

Printed Acoustic Wall Panels

 

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.

 

Acoustic Artwork - Acoustic 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.

 

Custom Printed Acoustic Wall Panels

 

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.

 

 


Chichester High School | Acoustic Solutions
Tuesday, January 17th, 2012  | posted by

Respace was approached by Chichester High School for Girls with the desire to achieve an acoustic solution for their multi-purpose hall.


The two adjacent sports halls had problems with the sound transfer between them. There had been an acoustic wall previously fitted between the two halls, this did not solve the problems of noise transfer, especially when exams were taking place.

 

Ecophon Super G Impact Resistant Acoustic Panels

 

An independent acoustician had already recommended that the noise be reduced at the source. This could be done by implementing sound absorbing panels. This would then reduce the reverberation time thus reducing the need for raised voices. This lowered the overall sound level within the hall with the added benefit of making the hall usable for other activities such as assemblies and other social functions.

 

Ecophon Super G Impact Resistant Acoustic Panels

 

ReSpace implemented the Ecophon Super G Impact Resistant Acoustic panels to run as a course around the sports hall which achieved this successful concept and delivered huge benefits to all users of the facilities.
