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.

Gym Acoustic Panels

The world of gyms is two-fold—there are gyms where people and schools hold events of all sizes, and there are commercial gyms where people go to exercise. Gyms are multi-purpose spaces, and whatever purpose you use for your gym, chances are, it’s going to be loud in there. Exercise centers of all shapes and sizes are loud, and that volume level makes speech clarity hard to come by. Unfortunately, it’s not always available. These spaces are multifaceted, and if you want to hear what’s going on in them, you need the right gym acoustic panels from Primacoustic.


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. It’s a nasty situation, but it’s not hopeless. With the right acoustic wall panels for gymnasiums, you can make sound manageable again.
