According to the ‘Ely Standard’, Ely police station is set to undergo a makeover including the enquiry office being made large. It will incorporate a private, sound proofed area for the public so they can discuss any issues they may have in confidence. Another interview room will also be upgraded with soundproofing material. This shows you just how big a part soundproofing can play in such venues, with it reducing the amount of noise transferred from room to another.
In places such as police stations, schools or places of work, there often comes a time when you need to speak to someone about information of a delicate nature, whether it is individually or business related. Confidentiality is paramount and in some cases if information were to get out into the public domain it could be extremely damaging. If this is a potential risk, then you really need to get soundproofing.
Soundproofing a room is the best way of ensuring that this risk is alleviated. By applying acoustic solutions to those areas which are most susceptible to letting noise pass through them, you will also certainly eliminate the chances of anyone hearing something that they should not. Soundproofing walls, ceilings and floor should be your main targeted areas and acoustic material can easily be applied to those places at an affordable price.
You should also think about replacing your current doors as you would be surprised at how much noise can escape through the gaps in doors. There a range of acoustic doors available which when fitted will reduce the amount of decibels of noise that can go through the door frame, making sure that no noise can be heard on the corridors.
So cover all bases and make sure you soundproof thoroughly to ensure that no fallouts ever occur!
