Lecture theatres are usually large volume interior spaces, and hence can be very prone to ‘echo’ or reverberation. This in turn can have a negative effect on speech clarity. For those seated at the back, or furthest away from the presenter, this echo effect can be so pronounced that clear understanding of speech or music is a real problem.
Reducing Noise In Lecture Theatre's
The problem may be compounded by the fact that modern lecture theatres also usually have amplified sound systems. Therefore, the acoustic treatment of these large spaces differs from that of smaller classrooms and is usually a critical part of the design process. Reflected sound can be minimised by installing sound absorbing acoustic wall or ceiling panels, like Sontext Serenity Acoustic Panels.
Solution to Reduce Noise In Lecture Theatre's
Sontext can manufacture fabric faced panels to your specified dimensions and acoustic performance as either wall or ceiling linings for large scale projects of this type.
The Murano range of perforated timber panels are finished in a variety of natural veneers, decorative laminates or painted colours that will enhance any interior space and also perform as an efficient sound absorbing lining for walls or ceilings.
Sontext can assist in all aspects of the design process, and for critical projects Sontext recommends the involvement of an acoustics engineer. This is common practice in spaces with usage of this type, and Sontext has successfully completed many projects like this around the world.
