Acoustical Ceiling Solutions Part 1: Top-Notch Sound Control For Healthcare Spaces


Think back to the last time you were in a doctor’s office, classroom or store. Were your thoughts ever disrupted by the noise from other people talking? Maybe it was a patient speaking to a doctor in another room, students talking outside of a classroom or even the echo from fellow shoppers pushing their carts through a store. These examples show that acoustics can significantly impact how sound travels in many different spaces—and why it’s critical to consider the environment and how to balance the acoustics for the best outcome. Designing and building using the proper materials are the first steps to the solution. In this four part series, you’ll learn how balanced acoustics impact a typical day in Mrs. Smith’s life.

Mrs. Smith is a working mom who experiences a variety of scenarios in any given day. Over the course of the next four weeks, you’ll learn about acoustical ceiling tiles that impact the spaces where we live, work and play. 

Today, Mrs. Smith spends her lunch hour visiting a friend in the hospital, but neither of them worries about medical information being heard in the room next door or in the corridor.
