The problem with noisy play rooms

Put a bunch of kids together in a room and in no time the sound levels augment to the point of surpassing the pain threshold. Kids yell, scream and cry and as the noise increases they automatically raise their voices to compensate.  Most play rooms are rectangular spaces with hard wall surfaces and tiled floors. The ‘joyful sound of the kids’ reflects off of these hard surfaces creating a din of noise that not only rides the nerves, it also induces stress.  There is no escape for the acoustic energy to escape. Kids grow tired more quickly, become irritable and what should be a nice, enjoyable afternoon becomes a headache for parents, guardians and kids alike.

How can Primacoustic help you?

Applying 1” (2.5cm) thick Primacoustic Broadway™ sound absorbing panels to between 15% to 25% of the wall surfaces will immediately quiet down the room to create a more comfortable and soothing environment.  Broadway panels are made from high-density 6lb glass wool for even absorption across the voice range. Each panel is fully encapsulated in micromesh with resin hardened edges to eliminate dusting. The panels are then hand wrapped in a rugged polyester tweed fabric that will hold up to traffic while being easy to vacuum. Mounting is done using Impalers™ and is as easy as hanging up a picture. Placement is not critical. Panels may be placed on any available wall space.  A variety of panel shapes are available to create unique, architecturally pleasing designs. Primacoustic Paintables™ may be used to add a splash of color or to transfer graphics for even greater effect. Once installed, the kids will encounter a quieter environment that will promote a more relaxed atmosphere.
