When a good sound environment could be a matter of life and death


Challenge

In pool areas, noise levels are almost always high. The sound reverberates between the hard surfaces on ceilings, walls and floors, and spreads across the water surfaces. However, any sound absorbing system installed must withstand the humid environments.  

Solution

Sound absorbers lower the sound level and limit sound propagation, which makes it easier to hear cries for help and locate the sound. Sound absorbers can also help create lower noise levels in communal shower areas, which are used by many people simultaneously. The Ecophon Hygiene system family includes acoustic ceilings specially designed for indoor swimming pools with high air humidity, or where surfaces are frequently exposed to water splashes.

For safety reasons, we recommend using one of the hygiene systems shown in the table below with edge and C4 Connect™ grid for all indoor pool area installations.
