Corridors and breakout spaces

Moving around, communicating and concentrating

The key to turning corridors and break-out spaces into good sound environments is to stop sound from spreading.

Corridors and breakout spaces are often used as multipurpose areas, including learning environments, while at the same time people move from class to class, talking and playing around. The noise from all these activities will spread throughout the space and can also enter adjoining classrooms. 

Challenge

  • Reducing sound levels
  • Preventing sound from spreading

Solution

  • Use a sound-absorbing ceiling with good absorption qualities and high efficiency in reducing sound propagation
  • Add wall absorbers wherever needed and possible

Product recommendation

 Product combination Total acoustic performance Impact resistance / Durability  Indoor air quality Ceiling surface
5 5 4 Super G
5 4 5 Reinforced Akutex™ FT
Focus and Akusto Wall 5 3 5 Akutex™ FT

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).
