Acoustics for Gymnasiums & Indoor Recreation Facilities
Gymnasium Acoustics - Improve the Sound of Indoor Play with Acoustic Panels
Anyone who has been in a school gymnasium, recreational center, or activity center knows the almost deafening build-up of sounds from sneakers squeaking, people yelling, footsteps, music, scoreboard buzzers, and even the sounds of bands or performers. Why is the acoustical experience so awful? High ceilings, hard and flat wall surfaces, open spaces, unfriendly corners are some of the worse culprits of echo and reverberation. And since many gymnasiums are also multi-purpose spaces -- used for concerts, banquets, conferences, performances, or other assemblies -- problems in gymnasium acoustics must be addressed.
Audimute acoustic panels are the building blocks for solving gymnasium acoustics problems
To effectively treat gymnasium acoustics problems, typically you need to plan on using a significant amount of sound absorption rating as close to 1.0 NRC as possible, covering as much of the open wall and ceiling surface space as possible. However, you don't want to create an acoustically dead space. Audimute has effectively (and affordably) treated many gymnasium acoustics problems, as well as problems in other multi-use or recreational spaces that have a similar qualities to a gym. Give us a chance to hear about your plans or needs, and our Acoustic Specialists will give you a personalized set of options that will:
- Help solve your gymnasium acoustics issues with ideas tailored to your needs and budgeting requirements
- Look great and, if you are interested, incorporate logos, images, or other graphics the space needs
- Cut installation time and costs by as much as 50% compared to other panel solutions
School Gymnasium Design can be both attractive and functional. Acoustical products look great and reduce the troublesome echo common in gymnasiums.
Capture your school’s spirit with Custom Image Acoustic Panels that feature your school’s mascot and colors. For a more affordable alternative to fabric panels, our AcoustiColor® Acoustic Panels are available in any shape and color! If wall space is limited or damage to wall décor is a concern, our acoustical ceiling products also help with gymnasium design and echo elimination.
Audimute has worked with several schools to create a functional gymnasium design for their school. For example, we helped St. Martin de Porres High School, in Cleveland Ohio, improve the appearance and sound in their gymnasium. Using our eco-C-tex® sound absorption product, we custom cut and coated each panel to fit this school’s gymnasium design.
AcoustiColor Acoustic Panels Review
"Audimute's design team provided me with extensive and detailed layouts for the gymnasium which afforded me a clear picture of what the customer was expecting. The results of the panel installation from both a visual and acoustical perspective were very impressive."
