We get lots of requests to help create great meeting spaces. We can create isolated offices, acoustic furniture for informal brainstorming sessions or 1:1 meetings and break out areas suitable for company presentations.

Healthy acoustics help to nurture productivity, they create harmony within the workplace and generally fill a room with feelings of contentment. Noisy situations aren’t just irritating they are stressful and damaging to health.

 

Hopefully your workplace is peaceful and quiet and nowhere near as loud as these extreme environments which rate as some of the loudest places on earth.

 

Airport runway – If you could stand next to a Jumbo Jet during a take off your ears would be subjected to 150 decibels of REALLY LOUD noise. At that level you’d have to wear some type of ear protection, even if you were stood a few hundred feet away. Not that you’d get that close to a jumbo, the airport security would haul you away before you had chance to put this to the test.

 

F1 track – It was nice to see Lewis Hamilton win the Malaysian Grand Prix recently, Mercedes as a whole are looking promising this year. What you might not know is the noise inside the cockpit of an F1 car can reach up to 140 decibels, it’s a good job the drivers wear ear plugs and have balaclavas and helmets to nullify some of the noise.

 

Football stadium – Pay to see your favourite team play at the weekend and the noise from the stadium can raise the hairs on the back of your neck at times. This sound was recorded at a football stadium in Istanbul, Turkey a while ago and the figure reached a whopping 131.76 decibels. Come on ref!

 

Rocket launch – Stand watching the Space Shuttle launch from its pad and you might be disappointed to hear the sound is supressed to restrict the volume. Don’t worry though, the volume still reaches 142 decibels and you’ll be too engrossed in the action to worry about what’s happening with the sound.

 

Your bedroom! Okay this is just for fun. Snoring can get really noisy though and some of the worst culprits can reach 90 decibels. If you have ever tried to sleep next to a snorer you’ll be tempted to do something crazy with your pillow to drown out the sound, nobody would blame you either.

Excessive noise is harmful for your ears, when it moves from nuisance levels and becomes a danger to your hearing, suitable sound protection is required. In the worst case scenarios a noisy atmosphere causes Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) but what exactly is this and how can you prevent it? This latest blog from Acoustic Interiors delves a little deeper into the subject of hearing loss causes by sudden or continuous exposure to excess noise.

There are a number of ways to ‘deaden’ noise in a room, you won’t get rid of the sound entirely but you can reduce the impact it has on the environment by taking simple but effective measures. We’ve highlighted some of the easier options for sound deadening, try these tips if your room reverberates noise.
