Swimming Pools have one of the most difficult of environments
to treat acoustically. With hard tiled
surfaces surrounding the pool mixed with the sound of people swimming, playing
and shouting the noise can reach extreme levels. Instructors of swimming lessons would find
teaching very difficult alongside the poor swimming pool acoustics and the
serious problem existed of misunderstanding the public address system
announcements and instructions in the event of an emergency. Swimming pools
& leisure centres should provide an acoustic environment that allows people
to enjoy their leisure time in peace, within a safe environment regarding
Controlling Swimming Pool Acoustics
The goal with your soundproofing treatment is to improve the
sound quality by lowering your level of ambient echo. By reducing your
background noise, you raise greater clarity to original sound and produce a
more user-friendly swimming environment.
This is accomplished by introducing a set of sound panels for swimming pool
acoustics that can effectively combine to capture and convert the unwanted
echoes out of your room and deliver back the sound values you are seeking.
Acoustic baffles can be wall or ceiling mounted inside your space.
Reduction Coefficient is an average rating of how much sound an acoustic
product can absorb. (How much quieter a product can make your space.) Like a
sponge absorbs water, an acoustic product absorbs sound and the NRC tells us
just how much sound those products can soak up.
range from 0 to 1. An NRC of 0 means that the product absorbs no sound. An NRC
of 1 means that the product absorbs all sound. The higher the NRC, the better
the product is at soaking up sound
thickness and density of a product are two factors in calculating a Noise
Reduction Coefficient. An acoustic product with a .95 NRC rating means that 95%
of sound in the space is absorbed, while the other 5% is reflected.
The acoustic panels with insulation materials which used
within the construction structure are the ideal solution for absorbing sound in
areas with large volumes such as swimming pools.
Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey® has different
types, shapes and colors of acoustic panels which are suitable for the swimming
pool environment, These panels are used for both noise reduction and moisture resistance.
An attractive, seamless, spray applied acoustic finish with a
medium textured acoustic finish available in standard and custom colours.
Acoustic ceiling spray ideal for use in offices, sports halls, public spaces, auditoria, classrooms, theatres etc.
Indoor sports halls and gymnasia
differ substantially from other secondary rooms in that they are very much
larger spaces intended in general for teaching groups of active students. As a
result, they have a dramatically different acoustic environment. Sports halls
are rated as the most difficult learning space to hear in. Although design criteria for the acoustics
of indoor sports halls and gymnasia are part of current building regulations,
in practice it has been difficult for designers to achieve these standards. Sports
Facilities such as sports halls and gymnasiums are large open spaces built to
withstand years of use for a variety of sports. They are built with hard wall,
floor and ceiling surfaces making them particularly poor acoustically. These
spaces are often used for a variety of activities making their acoustic
performance important in order to facilitate clear communication and provide an
enjoyable atmosphere whether the activity is a school assembly or one of the
many sports which are carried out in these environments.
Sports hall acoustics are typically
reverberant due to a combination of large areas of hard block walls, corrugated
steel ceilings and wooden floors along with high ceilings. To control a sports halls acoustics, a large
amount of acoustically absorptive material has to be applied around the
hall. A spray-on material has a distinct
advantage over acoustic panels in this situation.
An important term we should talk
about here is ‘’ reverberation time’’ Reverberation time: is the time required
for the sound to “fade away” or decay in a closed space. Sound in a room will
repeatedly bounce off surfaces such as the floor, walls, ceiling, windows or
When these reflections mix, a
phenomeon known as reverberation is created. Reverberation reduces when the
reflections hit surfaces that can absorb sound such as curtains, chairs and
For newly built sports halls
reverberation time must not exceed 1.5 seconds (or 2.0 seconds if 280-530 m2).
For refurbished sports halls,
reverberation time must not exceed 2.0 seconds, regardless of size.
Reflection and Sound Absorption
Once emitted from a source, sound
waves in hall travel through the air until they reach a boundary surface or
other obstacle. When a sound wave reaches a surface it will be partly reflected
off the surface back into the hall and continue travelling in a new direction,
and it will be partly absorbed by the surface with the absorbed energy being
dissipated as heat. Sports facilities are particularly problematic when it
comes to echo and reverberation due to the hard wall, floor and ceiling
surfaces which are required to withstand years of use from sporting activities.
With the soft, absorptive core
sitting flush against the walls of sports halls and the panels having a naked
backing, they are fully impact resistant and ideal for sports halls and
gymnasiums with high impact activities. The benefit of this solution is that
you are able to choose almost any fabric you want to wrap the core with –
giving you more design flexibility.
Acoustic solutions for sports halls
by using Acoustic panels Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey® are sound absorbing panels that are hung on a
wall or ceiling to control and reduce noise, eliminate slap echo in a room. The
objective is to enhance the properties of sound by improving sound quality and
soundproofing which concludes any means of reducing the sound pressure with
respect to a specified sound source and receptor.
These sound absorbing panels come in
a large variety of sizes, types and colours to meet your design, budgetary, and

to facilitate good speech intelligibility and speaking conditions in teaching
spaces, and to prevent interference by noise with study activities.
There is also a health and safety benefit with the Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey® -Panels as well, providing prevention of injuries from impact against walls during sport.
In addition to providing insulation
and acting as a substrate for roofing, in many situations roof insulations also
need to provide noise reducing characteristics. Building constructions near
airports or other high noise areas require noise reduction principles to be
employed. Today, the noise reduction properties of roof insulation must be
known to properly design structures in high noise areas. Designing
constructions to control noise requires, at a minimum, a basic understanding of
terms and methods used to develop design values for various constructions.
Sound travels through a building component because it sets up vibrations in
that component. Almost all building materials are sufficiently elastic to
transmit sound. Therefore, almost all building materials can be set into motion
by sound waves impinging upon them. Once construction is set into vibration, it
will transmit sound from the source through the construction and the sound will
be heard on the opposite side of the construction. The result is sound
transmission through construction. Sound travels through a building component
because it sets up vibrations in that component. Almost all building materials
are sufficiently elastic to transmit sound. Therefore, almost all building
materials can be set into motion by sound waves impinging upon them. Once
construction is set into vibration, it will transmit sound from the source
through the construction and the sound will be heard on the opposite side of
the construction. The result is sound transmission through construction. The
ability of a construction to transmit sound is dependent upon its mass. The
higher it’s mass, the more it is resistant to vibration caused by sound. If the
mass were extremely small, even faint sound pressure could move it and thus
In addition to mass, numerous other
factors must be considered in proper sound control design. Such factors include
background noise level, and transmission through floors, walls and penetrations
through the construction (which also includes insulation joints). An acoustical
engineer should be consulted when dealing with acoustical design.
Acoustical terms that are important
to know before calculating acoustic values:
Sound Pressure Level:
When it comes down to it, your ears
are pretty amazing. They allow you to hear sounds as quiet as a whisper and as
loud as a jet engine. How exactly do sound waves get transmitted to your ears
so that you can hear?
It starts with a vibration in the
air. A whisper only vibrates the air a little bit, while a jet engine vibrates
it A LOT. This vibration creates a pressure wave that passes through the air,
spreading out in all directions as it goes. Sound pressure is the pressure
measured within the wave relative to the surrounding air pressure. Loud sounds
produce sound waves with relatively large sound pressures, while quiet sounds
produce sound waves with relatively small sound pressures.
Sound pressure, like other kinds of
pressure, is commonly measured in units of Pascals (Pa). The quietest sound
that most people can hear has a sound pressure of 2 x 10-5 Pa, so this pressure
is called the threshold of human hearing.
An audio frequency or audible
is a periodic vibration whose frequency is in
the band audible to the average human. The SI unit of audio frequency is the
hertz (Hz). It is the property of sound that most determines pitch. The
generally accepted standard range of audible frequencies for humans is 20 to
20,000 Hz, although the range of frequencies individuals hear is greatly
influenced by environmental factors. In air at atmospheric pressure, these
represent sound waves with wavelengths of 17 meters (56 ft) to 1.7 centimetres
(0.67 in). Frequencies below 20 Hz are generally felt rather than heard,
assuming the amplitude of the vibration is great enough. High frequencies are
the first to be affected by hearing loss due to age or prolonged exposure to
very loud noises.
is the time required for
the sound to “fade away” or decay in a closed space. Sound in a room will repeatedly
bounce off surfaces such as the floor, walls, ceiling, windows or tables. Reverberation
is one of the most significant acoustic properties of a room. Knowing the
reverberation time is essential in characterizing rooms, be they performance
spaces, ordinary rooms or open office spaces.
The laboratory method to measure
acoustical values to use special instruments.
Also, there are some programs
”acoustics calculator” which provide you with a quick overview of the
acoustics in a room. Just type in your room data – measurements and material –
and the acoustics calculator generates a precise overview of reverberation
time, absorption area as well as other relevant information about acoustics.
You can have the report sent to your e-mail or you can print it – either on
paper or as a PDF. First select the shape of the room, and second type in
length, width, and height. The total area of ceiling, floor, walls, doors and
windows is automatically transferred to the further calculation. The total area
for doors and windows will automatically be subtracted from the total wall
area. Then you can get information about the sound level and its distribution
in the building. On the other hand, you can know the exact amount of noise

they differ in their behaviour to sound like reverberation time, clarity,
warmness, and other acoustic parameters.

of course economy destinations. Multi-purpose hall is designed to reach the
perfect sound performance for many implementations. It changes its shape to fit
sound conditions that are used for.
In addition to this acoustic panels
can appear/disappear or change its angle to reflect more/fewer acoustic waves
due to their necessity.
The builders are constantly looking
for ways of reducing or eliminating impact noises and airborne noises in their
structure. A ceiling acoustic anchoring system is the unique solution where
insulators and the ceiling furrings allow the decoupling of the ceiling
structure with the gypsum. The mechanical system being equipped with a rubber
insert, it absorbs the impact noises and the vibration on the floor above and
avoids the vibration noises in the ceiling.

benefits that it includes:
Fast and easy to install.

Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey® works on acoustic solutions to give listeners a quiet, comfortable place to gratify.
Recording studios need over
quiet to catch the pitch and tone of sound warmly. Absorbers which are
materials with a high value of sound absorption coefficient. However, adding
these materials randomly is not a good effective solution because every
situation needs its own solution. Engineers calculate the exact amount and
place of these panels. This step follows measurements and studying the
Reflected Sound –
When a sound source ceases
in space, the sound waves will continue to reflect off the hard wall, floor and
ceiling surfaces until it loses enough energy and dies out. The prolongation of
the reflected sound is known as reverberation. Reverberation Time (RT) is the
number of seconds it takes for the reverberant sound energy to die down to one
millionth (or 60dB) of its original value from the instant that the sound
Reverberation is dependent
only on the volume of a space and the acoustically absorptive quality of the
room’s finishes. Hard surfaced rooms will have a longer reverberation time than
rooms finished with sound absorbing materials.
When a sound wave travels
outward in all directions and encounters an obstacle such as a wall, floor or
ceiling surface the direction of the sound will be changed or reflected. The
direction of travel of the reflected sound will be at the same angle as the
original sound striking the surface.
The immediate effect of
multiple reflections is an increase in the sound intensity caused by the
reflections. A listener will hear the direct sound arriving at the ear along
with all of the multiple reflections. Thus the combined loudness of the direct
sound and the reflected sound will be greater than the direct sound alone.
Noise Reduction Coefficient
An NRC of 0 indicates
perfect reflection; an NRC of 1 indicates perfect absorption.
It is the arithmetic
average, rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.05, of the absorption
coefficients for a specific material and mounting condition determined at the
one octave band centre frequencies of 250, 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz.
used to calculate NRC are commonly determined in reverberation rooms of
qualified acoustical laboratory test facilities.
NRC is most commonly used
to rate general acoustical properties of acoustic ceiling tiles, baffles, and
banners, office screens, and acoustic wall panels.
Frequency of Sound used in
Sound is the quickly
varying pressure wave traveling through a medium. When sound travels through
air, the atmospheric pressure varies periodically. The number of pressure
variations per second is called the frequency of sound and is measured in Hertz
(Hz) which is defined as cycles per second.
The higher the frequency,
the more high-pitched a sound is perceived. The sounds produced by drums have
much lower frequencies than those produced by a whistle.
The generally accepted
standard range of audible frequencies for humans is 20 to 20,000 Hz.
The adult male voice has a
frequency range of fundamental frequencies from 85Hz to 180Hz.
The adult female voice has
a frequency range of fundamental frequencies from 165Hz to 255Hz.
The Frequencies of Music
are much higher reaches thousands of Hz.

Quality of life requires
increasingly strict standards; to protect people and/or their environment. One
of the problems faced is sounded hustle. That will be annoying and produce
noise most times so sound insulation is applied to maximize the acoustic
In our buildings, while
walls block sound waves noise is basically transmitted through doors.
If doors do not meet the
same acoustical requirements as the rest of the room, then the sound will
easily pass through it to adjoining spaces. When fitted with the right door and
sealing systems, the noise will be contained and controlled.
An acoustic door is a
solid, heavily framed door which most often includes seals around its edges and
has insulated construction to reduce noise and vibrations from passing through
its surface. Depending on the application and the design. There are many types
and grades of acoustic door available for assorted applications and industries.
These doors can have a
variety of purposes, such as enabling confidential discussions to be held
inside a room without the risk of those outside overhearing and allowing noisy
activities to take place, such as music rehearsals, without nearby rooms and
areas of the building being disturbed. Music studios are one environment which
typically makes use of acoustic doors. When audio is being recorded it is
important that external noises do not interfere with the sound being captured.
The control room with producers and engineers inside it needs to be isolated,
and each room in the studio must contain its own noise levels successfully to
avoid disturbing those in neighbouring rooms. Sound insulation in these
settings is not an optional extra, it is absolutely essential for the
functionality of the building. In the audio recording industry, the acoustic
door serves a special purpose since unwanted noise needs to be avoided in a
successful recording session. In a recording studio you may have several rooms
or booths that are designed for specific tasks. The studio control room has an
acoustic door so the engineer and producer can be isolated from the additional
rooms and parts of the studio while allowing these individuals to travel
between locations. Sometimes these doors will be transparent containing multi-pane
glass panels in the center so that individuals on each side can see each other
Acoustic doors are vital to
properly insulate the sounds inside a room. The combination of the doors’ solid
build, their edge seals and the frame, along with the insulated engineering
within the body of the door, all contribute to a significant reduction in the
vibrations and sound that pass through it. Sometimes an acoustic door is solid
steel or wood with an insulated core to achieve maximum quiet when transparency
is not necessary. A door of this style is quite often used in an examination
room at a doctor’s office where a conversation between the doctor and patient
requires total privacy.
Another logical home for an
acoustic door could be a conference room at a corporate office where
information concerning product development, human resources or business
strategy would be discussed. Counselling centres, police station questioning
rooms, and testing facilities or anywhere where privacy and confidentiality are
essential, can be included as an application for this type of door. Another work environment where acoustic doors are increasingly commonly
used are medical or healthcare premises. When patients talk in confidence to
their doctor, nurse or counsellor they have an expectation of privacy and
discretion. Compromising this, and their trust in the service or staff they are
working with, by having doors which allow sound to penetrate through could have
a detrimental impact on their relationship with their physician or healthcare
worker, so if they can overhear a doctor’s discussion with another patient
through the door, they will have no faith that their own personal conversations
and concerns are being kept private.
Another scenario where
acoustic doors can provide considerable benefit is for corporations or
businesses who have meetings where sensitive information is discussed. This
might include meetings about staffing and human resources, product development,
grievance procedures or business strategy; all of which could have a negative
effect if overheard. Even if just a snippet leaks out of the room, assumptions
can be made and confidences broken, so mitigating against this risk by
installing acoustic doors can make situations easier to manage, and keep
sensitive information to within the appropriate group of people.
Factories or businesses
which house heavy machinery are also prime candidates for benefiting from an
acoustic door. The business owners can promote positive aural health by
limiting loud noises to one part of the premises where adequate hearing
protection is used. Preventing this noise from leaking to other sections of the
building will make it a more pleasant, as well as safer, place for employees
and managers to be.
Production departments or
facilities that contain heavy machinery, tooling or motorized activity usually
have acoustical doors throughout the location to keep hazardous sound levels
out of populated areas. A large manufacturing plant may use an acoustic door to
establish privacy and protection for managers required to monitor productivity
on the main floor. A newspaper will use acoustic doors and panels to dampen the
sound of large printing presses while allowing a passageway for pressmen and
technicians to maintain and operate the machinery.
Logically, any facility
where sound needs to be separated from people, places or things to ensure
safety, privacy, or productivity and still provide a method of passage between
two or more locations, will need a door of this type. A good look around our individual
environments should help us notice with more clarity a number of uses for the
Soundproof acoustic doors

standards and achieve an average level of sound reductions up to 55dB. according to durability and sound
transmission loss, other requirements may also apply, such as fire resistance
and high thermal insulation.
Acoustic doors are designed
to reduce the escape of noise and vibrations from one room to another. With a
multitude of potential uses in a wide variety of industries and sectors, these
doors are available in different decibel ratings to cater for the needs and
requirements of individual circumstances.

Public buildings are any type of building that is accessible to the public and is funded from public sources. All types of government offices are considered public buildings. Public buildings generally serve the purpose of providing a service to the public. Many of these services are provided free to residents. This list includes public schools, libraries, courthouses and post offices. While it has so many crowds inside it, clearly it has an acoustic problem. Imagine students shouting, clients talking, and employees sounds.
The improvement on the human quality
of life and the continuous growth in population in developing and developed
societies, have exacerbated the environmental and financial issues. Some of
these problems are noise and the different types of human an industrial waste.
Many natural products have been recently developed and tested for acoustic
applications. Sound-absorbing materials absorb most of the sound energy
striking them and reflect very little. Therefore, sound-absorbing materials
have been found to be very useful for the control of room noise. In this
article, sound absorption technology as an effective noise reduction technology
building using sustainable acoustic absorbers, will be discussed. Many public
housing sites are subject to severe noise impact from various sources.
Let us focus on the most common
public buildings and Acoustics in public buildings:

purposes including checking out books, magazines, publications, music, and
movies. The public can also visit a library to access the Internet, make
photocopies and to join different types of programs. These kinds of public
buildings need much more quiet and relax, so acoustic treatments and solutions
must be considered.
These problems need an acoustical
solution to reduce noise and increase the quality of sound reaching the human
To mention Sound Absorbing Materials
which are used in acoustic panels Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey®:
Porous materials obtained from
synthetic fibers, such as mineral wool or glass wool, are commonly used for
thermal insulation and sound absorption, because of their high performance and
low cost. Their diffuse-field sound absorption coefficient is very high at
midhigh frequencies. Viscous losses convert acoustic energy into heat as sound
waves travel through the interconnected pores (or fibers) of the material.
Because motion of the air through the porous material is necessary to dissipate
acoustical energy, a material tends to be ineffective when placed close to a
rigid boundary. Effectiveness of absorption is directly related to the
thickness of the material; absorbers are most effective when their thickness is
between one-fourth and one half the wavelength of the sound, with the maximum
performance where the thickness is one-fourth the wavelength. This means that
sound absorbers do a very good job at high frequencies, which have short

– recycled materials;
– Mixed and composited materials.
Acoustima® acoustic panel by Seatup Turkey® offers powerful solutions which can be used in Acoustics in public buildings at a reasonable cost in response to all the needs in the matter of soundproofing (preventive or curative) by the means of ergonomic equipment (standard or tailor made) for which the quality of design and of execution meets the highest level of requirement in this area for an efficient fight against noise in the context of compliance with legislation on noise at work (or of improvement of working conditions) or of compliance to the regulation in terms of acoustic comfort in buildings.

the vicinity of airports, noise is affected not only by landing and taking off
of aircraft but also by noisy aircraft ground operations. The resultant sound

related to taxiing of an aircraft from stand or sleeve to the beginning of the

of the most commonly used acoustic panels is linear wooden acoustic panels. Without
holes, it considered as a reflector but with holes in back it behaves both
reflector and absorber to the acoustic wave which makes sound clear and warm at
the same time creating a clean linear effect on walls and ceilings across a
range of applications, this panel style offers a warm organic finish, ideally
suited to use in lecture theatres, meeting rooms and public buildings. linear
wooden acoustic panels in their design depend on absorption coefficients that
are an average of how absorptive each product is at numerous frequencies,
generally at 500 Hz, 1000 Hz, and 2000 Hz. Generally speaking, soft, porous materials
will be more absorptive than hard, reflective surfaces.
hardboard is made of wood fibers, usually with the addition of resin, and
tempered by coating with a thin layer of linseed oil and baking at a high
temperature to polymerize the oil. This provides more water and impact
resistance, hardness, rigidity and tensile strength. Hardboard will bend and
warp with age and in the presence of moisture, and will sag under heavy weight
(the exact weight is based on the dimensions and quality of the hardboard)
unless secured to even weight distribution among several mounting points. Wood
is sometimes selected for aesthetic reasons. It may be chemically treated for
strength and fire-retardant characteristics or turned into plywood first. Also,
it may be mounted as a thin strip instead of the squarer shape of panels.

rather excessive value for acoustic comfort and well-being in shopping centers.
Not Sound and noise in shopping malls only by the feeling of discomfort but
also for “incompatibility” relatively to speech intelligibility.
noise is high makes an acoustically unfavorable space, especially if it
intensifies in frequency with the highest hearing sensitivity, between 1 and 4
all the characteristics, the main negatives points for acoustics are number of
floors, height and volume; gallery configuration linking the different spaces
of the malls assisting in the spread of noise; reduced area of food courts
concentrating people and centralizing activities and access; surface coatings
with reflective materials (such as ceramic, marble or ceramic tiles) and glass
surfaces; little or no application of absorbents materials and systems; noisy
machines and equipments, little or nothing acoustically treated; carts without
silent bearings and chairs and tables with worn rubber or without them
producing noise when dragged. In contrast, the positive characteristics
observed in some of the cases studied are: height and volume reduced; spatial
configuration like long corridors, with little interaction between the spaces;
large food courts so as not to agglomerate people, and consequently the noise.
Other favorable characteristics detected that, in the absence, can also be
taken as intervention proposals, include: acoustic treatment of the particular
noise of machines and equipments through quieter cooling
systems/ventilation/others; presence of rubber in the legs of tables and
chairs; silent bearings in the carts; and especially lesser application of
reflective materials over sound absorptive, for example, perforated panels
and/or baffles in the ceiling, porous and fibrous materials in the decorative
objects (tissues, cushioned) and on the walls (wood fiberboard agglomerate,
etc.), as well as more areas with sofas and carpets. Note that these and many
other examples can be considered for proper acoustic corrections.
general, a minimal careful acoustical design can decrease the average RT up to
1.5 s, increase the average RASTI up to 0.10 and decrease the occupation
background noise in 3 dB(A).
succinctly: for Acoustic solution for shopping centers to reduce the
reverberation of space through the type and shape of the surfaces and volume;
increase sound absorption and reduce the effects of noise sources, in order to
reduce ambient noise. Sound absorption of the environment is the basis of the
best results of the acoustics of shopping centers. All these factors contribute
for better speech intelligibility, better quality and comfort of space,
consenting users to spend more time in shopping centers.

is the slat shape with NRC 0.80, this combination has a role in the Aesthetic and the
Also, it used the shape of dome in the middle of the shopping center which helps in reducing the noise by using the
resonant cavity method because of its
concave shape to reflect the sound by delay time and this will canceling the
echoes in the space, in addition the floor is ceramic that has an acoustically
and thermally properties.
And, there are acoustical wooden seats in the halls and walkways give
the shopping center a unique view and plays a role in the acoustic solution in
