Good acoustics in humid areas will:

  • reduce noise levels
  • decrease the open area sound propagation
  • reduce reverberation

Some areas need solutions with a tolerance for high humidity, such as showers or areas with a pool. Usually built with hard surfaces, these areas are noisy. Good room acoustics will aid safety, improve communication and reduce stress in these areas.
