Hospitals

Hospitals

Hospitals are another environment with their own particular issues.  Their sterile nature usually means lots of smooth surfaces for easy cleaning, which means more echoing and reverberation, even with simple normal activities, such as walking and opening and closing doors.  This is especially a problem when noises can be travelling around at night, disturbing patients who really need their sleep to recover.

Action soundproofing understands the particular acoustic challenges of hospitals and has a range of specific solutions for typical hospital problems. Simple acoustic dampening around doors can dramatically attenuate noises penetrating into wards and surgeries, or from administration areas. 

We successfully treat:

  • Transmission noise between examining and surgery rooms
  • Reverberation noise in common areas and waiting halls
  • External sound interference from neighbouring properties or construction zones that can affect the wellbeing of staff and patients.
