This was a job that was finished quite a few years ago. It was for a racquetball court that had been converted into an aerobics room. Ted recently discovered that the director of this rec center had posted a video of the exercise room, with typical music for a spin class playing, on YouTube.
Church acoustics in fellowship halls or multi-purpose rooms are some of the more frequent rooms that we are asked for recommendations for acoustical treatment. These rooms have a few very common similarities that are the reason for the need for acoustical wall panels or acoustical ceiling panels.
Other than a vehicle, a garage door opener is probably the most prominent noise source in a garage. They are strong motors that often introduce a large amount of vibration into a structure. Depending on the location of the garage, this can be quite bothersome […]
