Good acoustics in the corridors will:

  • reduce sound propagation along the corridor
  • prevent sound propagation from corridor into adjacent rooms

Corridors are busy areas in a healthcare setting, and sound will spread along their length and into adjoining rooms. Much of the communication between staff happens in corridors.

Due to their elongated shape, sound travels very fast and far and affects all rooms that are directly connected to the corridor, causing challenges for patients who are trying to rest and sleep.

Acoustic challenge

  • Preventing sound propagation in corridor from one space to another.
  • Minimize noise that can disturb patients in their rooms adjacent to the corridor.

Hygiene challenge

  • Type of stain: Dust and microbes.
  • Cleaning frequency: Occasional.
  • Type of cleaning: Dry cleaning, wet wiping and disinfection.


  • Use a sound-absorbing ceiling with good absorption qualities and high efficiency in reducing sound propagation.
  • Use wall absorbers wherever possible to reduce sound levels and sound propagation.
