Home Gym Echo Problem – Fixed
This gym project may be slightly smaller in scale than most, but it is a success story none the less.

Thank you for the Sound Silencer acoustical wall panels, they have worked perfectly for my home gym. As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, I have been in many sports arenas and gymnasiums. While they are fun to be in, they are very loud and often have a terrible echo. When we designed our home gym, my wife and I wanted the walls to be safe for when my kids to run around in the gym and we wanted the room to be more quiet than a regular gym. We considered hanging impact absorbing gymnastics type mats on the walls, but these were expensive, difficult to install, and not very sound absorbing. We looked at fabric acoustical wall panels, but they were not durable or easily washable. Then I found the Sound Silencer acoustical wall panels online. I had a free sample sent to me, and I was thrilled to find that they are not only sound absorbing, but impact absorbing as well. The panels will deform to absorb an impact and yet bounce quickly back to their original shape. This was exactly what we were looking for, a sound absorbing material that was also impact absorbing, durable, and easy to install. I would strongly recommend these panels for other similar applications. We love our fun filled, kid friendly, and quiet gym.
