Acoustics in Healthcare

Create balanced acoustical design in healthcare spaces.
1:40
 

Beautiful design + great acoustics = Sound Design™

Sound Design in today’s healthcare facilities requires the functional performance of combination acoustics for speech privacy and optimum patient recuperation. Excessive noise is created by corridor activity, busy nurse’s stations, equipment, alarms, and activity in treatment rooms which has an adverse effect on patient stress and comfort. Studies indicate that on average, hospital noise levels exceed those set by the World Health Organization.

Contributors of Noise:

  • Hard surfaces
  • Walls not built to deck
  • Alarms, generators, HVAC
  • 24/7 environment

Balanced acoustical solutions:

  • For confidentiality, use ceilings with the right combination of high CAC to block sound from adjacent spaces, and high NRC to decrease unwanted sound and control reverberation.
  • In open spaces used for concentration, specify ceilings with combination acoustics: high NRC to decrease reverberant sound and moderate CAC to block sound from traveling into adjoining spaces.
  • In open spaces used for collaboration, in addition to combination acoustics of high NRC and moderate CAC, you may want to consider spot acoustics to provide additional control.
