Noise control in the educational setting is often overlooked but very vital to the learning experience. In educational facilities one often finds large open rooms with hard surfaces creating an uncomfortable amount of reverberation. This can cause increased stress and interference during the learning process, especially for students with learning disabilities. ArtUSA strives to correct these issues by creating some contrast in the room with our sound absorbing wall panels and ceiling tiles. Strategic placement of these panels or tiles is very important in providing the most cost effective but also acoustically sound solution. Also, with many different style and color options the panels not only create a better environment acoustically but aesthetically as well. The same principles apply to choir and band rooms, libraries, auditoriums, and even lunch rooms.
