Nursery Acoustics

High background noise levels can result from several sources, for example, large groups of active children or areas of hard reflective surfaces. Background noise can be intensified by sound waves bouncing off these hard surfaces, like tabletops, hard floors, plasterboard ceilings, and glass windows. 

Noise levels in Childcare Centres and Kindergartens can be a real problem, and can cause, stress on teachers, distress for children with learning difficulties, difficulty for students to concentrate and understanding teacher's instructions.



Reducing Noise In Nursery

Noise from multiple sources and frequencies requires the use of broadband sound absorbers that are ideally also durable and easily cleaned. Acoustic Ceiling Panels faced with porous acoustic fabrics are ideal for this purpose. The fabric facing needs to be porous so the sound will transmit through the facing to be absorbed by the sound absorbing medium underneath.

Acoustic ceiling panels have the added benefit of being able to be installed out of the way of prying fingers on the ceiling for example - if the wall areas are taken up by pin boards and notice boards. Acoustic panels such as Serenity Panels are one of the most cost effective methods of absorbing background noise.
