Acoustic Ceilings for Education
Quiet Sound acoustics is the new generation of plaster acoustic tiles specifically designed for educational organisations such as schools, universities and colleges. Since July 2016, Quiet Sound acoustics has been successfully implemented in many education facilities throughout Australia.
Creating an environment where good communication can take place should be a goal for any classroom or learning space.
Why Acoustics Matter in Education
Classroom acoustics are an important aspect of the learning environment. Classroom activities fundamentally involve speech between teachers and students or between students, indicating the importance of environments that support clear communication. Much of what is learnt in school is through extended periods of hearing and listening. As a result of changes in teaching style, hands-on activities or discussions are now common place in classrooms and this naturally brings about active, noisy environments.
Inappropriate levels of background noise and reverberation ratios can also inhibit reading and spelling ability, behavior, attention, concentration, and academic performance. Furthermore, children who develop language skills in poor acoustic environments may develop long term speech comprehension problems
