Reduce sound in schools with acoustic panels

Schools can be an extremely noisy environment to the point that they have their own building advice and regulations.

Building Bulletin 93 (BB93) Acoustic Design of Schools – Performance Standards. Was introduced in 2014 to provide guidance and performance targets not only in acoustics but for also for lighting and ventilation.

The education funding agency published some acoustic baseline designs to help schools, colleges and universities understand how to meet these guidelines.

A huge part of the guidance is reverberation control in classrooms, the main hall and the sports hall. Detailing how acoustic panels (absorption) can make a huge difference and where they should be positioned.

Our acoustic consultants will review each space by measuring the room, the shape and what type of finishes such as the floor covering. They will then create a report on the best products to meet the school budget.
