Acoustical Solutions Rep Kevin McIver recently worked with a private independent school that serves children with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences. Kevin worked closely with the school’s contractors to design a custom acoustic foam ceiling created from Acoustical Solutions’ standard products.

The room is a Physical Education Classroom that is always filled with a lot of movement and noise. All the parallel, bare surfaces however, created a high reverberation time and echo. This amplified the noise and made it hard for the children to understand what their instructors were saying.

The Results:


“I loved the idea they had for ceiling circles instead of out of the box panels,” says McIver, “they’re made from our AlphaSorb® Flat Acoustic Foam which the customer painted himself”.


The customer wrote that the panels worked well and produced a noticeable change about the room’s acoustics.
