How does noise affect us?
The best acoustic solutions are about the health, well-being and productivity of the individuals in a space. In this video, workplace acoustics experts Paige Hodsman, Office Concept Developer for Ecophon and Dr. Nigel Oseland, Workplace Specialist from WorkPlace Unlimited, discuss psychoacoustics, the affect of noise on people, and why it is an important consideration in design.
Your partner in sound ceiling solutions
In recent years, the design and construction community has learned that sound is far more critical than realized in the past. In fact, it’s so critical, that acoustic comfort is a key element of Indoor Environmental Quality under LEED v4.
But how do you define a comfortable acoustic environment? It depends on the environment. Proper acoustics means sounds are controlled to ensure a space suits the way it is commonly used – whether that be for concentration, collaboration or rest. Fortunately, you don’t have to decipher the complexities of acoustic performance on your own. CertainTeed Ceilings has the knowledge, expertise and resources to make sure you have the right blend of products to manage the sound in your space.
