Soundproofing for the Schools & Educational Environments


Acoustic conditions in new school buildings and
schools formed by change of use are now included
in the building regulations bb93.

The new Approved Document E, 2003 (Part E-4) refers schools and designers to Building Bulletin 93 – The Acoustic Design of Schools for detailed guidance.

Rooms and other spaces must have acoustic conditions and adequate acoustic insulation to prevent any disturbance to effective teaching and learning caused by noise.

Schools and education soundproofing

Classroom Soundproofing

Poor acoustics in the classroom impede pupil learning, increase the strain on teacher’s voices and impact on classroom discipline.
Reasons for poor acoustics include things like the stock of old Victorian era schools which are often unsuitable for modern teaching methods, inadequate sound insulation in modern constructions or open plan areas designed to accommodate multi-purpose use where background noise and sound intrusion cause problems. Sports halls, swimming pools, assembly areas and even offices suffer poor acoustic conditions.
JCW Acoustic Supplies’ acoustic sound absorption and soundproofing products can help schools, local authorities, designers and builders meet the sound insulation challenges set out by the government in The Acoustic Design of Schools document.
We pride ourselves on our technical knowledge and the quality of our technical service. Our acoustic consultancy team contains knowledgeable and experienced individuals who know how to deal with any acoustic situation in schools they encounter.
