Gyms and Multi-Purpose Spaces

Gymnasiums are designed to primarily host athletics programs and events, but the reality for most schools and universities is that gyms must also double as multi-purpose facilities. Gyms are often used for other gatherings like assemblies, convocations, school fairs, and even pep rallies. All environments where speech clarity takes precedence over physical activities and competition.


The Issues with Gyms

Contributing to the speech intelligibility problem is the structural design of most gyms — high, open ceilings with hardwood floors, metallic fixtures, and hard surface walls. Just like the balls that bounce off the hardwood floor in a gym during a sporting event, sound waves will bounce off the walls, ceilings and floor in a gym. Add to that the noise of a crowd, whether it be a sporting event or an assembly, and a gym can quickly become a seemingly uncontrollable cacophony of noise.
