Acoustical Surfaces Inc specializes in classroom acoustics and compliances with the national ANSI (American National Standards Institute) classroom acoustical standards. Approximately one third of all students are missing 30%-40% of all verbal communications in the classroom, making it imperative that the acoustical environment be adequately addressed. If children cannot hear and understand what is being said, they cannot learn to their full potential. While all children will benefit from good acoustics the most “at risk” children are those with hearing deficits, middle ear infections, ADHD, or CAPD and all early age children just learning to acquire the basic cognitive skills.
In larger spaces speech intelligibility and good music listening is achieved when the correct sound absorption materials are installed to reduce the reverberation time to 1 second or less. In classrooms the ANSI Standard is .6 seconds. Our friendly, knowledgeable sales team can stop the guesswork and pinpoint exactly how much acoustical material you need to achieve a certain desired reverb time for optimal speech intelligibility.
If you are in need of sound blocking products whether it is a floor to floor, room to room, ceiling plenum, industrial noise control or outdoor sound problems – we have a variety of products to block sound from one area to another.
