Public Libraries

Noise is anathema to a library, particularly when it reverberates around the facility. The resulting echoes create distractions for patrons and should be mitigated with a combination of sound-absorbing and sound-blocking products such as wall panels and door seals. The lower the reverberation time in the room, the easier it is for a patron to concentrate on reading or research. Our acoustic consultants will help you choose the best acoustical materials for your library based on your budget, required look and durability, the fire rating of the material, and the reverberation time needed for the size and usage of the room. There are many types of acoustic panels, ceiling baffles, clouds, and tiles, plus door treatments that help reduce room noise and echo. All treatments will contribute to making the library a serene environment.
