As sensitivity to confidentiality heightens, specifiers must become more aware of the need to control sound within a space and isolate it between zones. Whether the spaces are closed and private or open and collaborative, speech privacy is now more important than ever.
One of the first ambisonic simulation environments in the country provides architects, engineers, and contractors an in-depth understanding of how a space will sound and look even before the ground is broken.
Hospitals are inherently noisy for two primary reasons. First, there is the abundance of noise sources, from paging systems and patient monitoring equipment to staff conversations and the bustle of visitors.
A suspended acoustical ceiling represents a significant percentage of a room’s surface. As such, these ceilings are critical to controlling the noise level in a space by providing a means of absorbing unwanted sound generated inside and blocking unwanted sound generated outside.
