What is good acoustic comfort?
In a room with poor acoustic performance, sounds will reverberate constantly – creating an unpleasant and uncomfortable acoustic environment, due to the long reverberation time.
But with the acoustic performance of perforated gypsum, rooms benefit from a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere, ideal for productive workplaces, due to the optimum level of absorption and reflection.
What’s the secret behind Gyptone?
This video gives a short introduction to how an acoustic gypsum ceiling actually works and how it can create a more pleasant acoustic environment.
Ensure good speech clarity in classrooms
Good acoustic comfort is the ideal acoustic environment, due to an appropriate acoustic reverberation time and high speech clarity.
A sound-regulated environment, where some sound waves are reflected while others are absorbed, ensures good speech clarity.
Good speech clarity is equally important in classrooms, where it is important to deliver a message from one person to another. Especially in a classroom, where students sitting at the back need to hear the teacher just as clearly as those sitting at the front. This is vital to students’ ability to learn, as has been proven in many studies.
Better sound at home
Many modern homes are noise-ridden because of ‘hard walls’ and sparse furnishings. Using acoustic ceiling boards creates a calm and pleasant sound environment, where speech is more easily understood.
Improve sound environment
Noisy, open-plan offices increase sick days among staff. Research shows this is a particular problem where many people sit together.
One American study found that in open-plan offices with more than six people, absenteeism was 62 per cent higher. Gyptone acoustic ceilings can improve the sound environment in offices.
