Playing and learning across the world

To give the children and teachers a space where they can have fun teaching and learning, it is crucial that

  • sound levels are reduced
  • sound is prevented from spreading

When you have a lot of children together in a nursery or pre-school, the sound levels can easily escalate. This makes it hard for the children to hear each other and for teachers to teach and give instructions. The result is a loud, tiring and unbearable atmosphere where teachers constantly have to raise their voice to be heard.

Challenge

  • Reducing sound levels
  • Stopping sound from bouncing off the walls, creating echoes

Solution

  • Use a sound-absorbing ceiling with good absorbing qualities in all speech frequencies
  • Add wall absorbers to at least one wall, but preferably on two adjacent ones

Product recommendation  

 Product combination Total acoustic performance Impact resistance/ Durability  Indoor air quality Ceiling surface
5 3 5 Akutex™ FT
5 3 5 Akutex™ T
Gedina and Akusto Wall 3 3 5 Akutex™ T

This recommendation is for this particular activity and space, based on a comparison between Ecophon products. The scale applied ranges from 1 to 5, where 5 is the highest score. For indoor air quality, 5 equates to compliance with French VOC A+ and California Emission Regulation standard, and 4 equates to French VOC A and M1 (The Finnish Emission Classification of Building Material).
