Pay Attention to Acoustics!
Architects often make the mistake of overlooking
the importance of acoustics as a vital part of their projects.
Why Are Acoustics Necessary?
Sound-buffering results are only as good as the level of acoustics introduced. Noise disturbs comfort, privacy, concentration, conversation and most of all productivity. Being able to concentrate while working, to hear the spoken word clearly in a church or synagogue or to have a quiet home environment are all aspects of sound-buffering acoustics properties and vital in creating an ideal and appreciated environment.
Hard, reflective surfaces cause echo and reverberation throughout the space. Sound transmissions from room to room, unaddressed acoustically, detract from a well-designed environment. Un-buffered sound also kills efficient productivity of those working within the space.
In the work environment, if employees are unable to concentrate due to noise or unwanted sound interference they may become inefficient and productivity lessened. It takes many times more effort to accomplish the same task in a noisy environment compared to acoustically correct space. Office environments with excessive noise levels reduce concentration. Companies may find they are throwing away millions of dollars each year as a result of low productivity due to noise distraction.
Excessive noise levels have become a way of life in our modern environment. Machinery, increased numbers of people in the workplace, telephones, cell phones, computers, open office spaces, building noises and outside influences have all contributed to this problem.
Add to this, sick-building syndrome; polluted by dangerous, degraded fiberglass dust, the health consequences are unimaginable. Understanding the hazards of using fiberglass should be a priority before you plan your project.
