Acoustical Solutions Technical Sales Rep Kathy Palimore explains how to approach soundproofing a training room, conference room, and classroom.
Typically, there are two acoustical problems most people want to address when it comes to training rooms. The first is reducing noise and reverberation, or echo, within the room. Secondly, is soundproofing the room, meaning blocking sound transmission from one room to another.
The first issue requires purely sound absorptive materials. The best sound absorbing material for these applications is AlphaSorb® Fabric Wrapped Acoustical Panels, which come in over 40 colors and any size up to a 4′ x 10′ panel.
The second issue requires a product with a sound barrier. AlphaSorb® Barrier Panels combine sound absorptive fiberglass with a mass loaded vinyl barrier, so it reduces reverberation like a traditional panel, but also uses dense material to stop sound from passing through the panel.
After a banking company discovered their new acoustical treatment did not adequately improve the sound in their training room, they hired Designer Donna LaForge to find a better solution for the reverberation in the large space. Acoustical Solutions made Two-inch thick AlphaSorb® Acoustic Panels according to Donna’s design, which eliminated the reverberation after treatment installation. The results were exactly what the client had hoped for. For more about this project, please click here.
