Acoustic Treatment to Reduce Noise Effectively
Fifty years ago, it was still easy to find truly quiet places. Nowadays, even if you travel to Australia's most distant regions, if you listen carefully, you'll still discern the noise of faraway traffic. It may be reduced to just a hum, but still, it's there. In the distance, a train may rumble by, or a plane with heavy-duty engines may fly overhead. Noise surrounds us, and it is getting louder every day.
The consequences of noise pollution
Noise pollution is increasing daily and continues through the night as well. It decreases both our physical and mental rest. This affects our children's health and our own.
Noise effects on our health:
- increased heart rate,
- high blood pressure,
- digestion problems,
- sleeping disorders,,
- decreasing attention and concentration problems,
- headaches and migraine,
- ulcers, in the case of long-term exposure, and
Improved Sound Insulation with Acoustic Treatment to Protect your health
Your existing walls and ceilings will only offer you so much protection against noise coming from outside your home or workplace. Consider an acoustic treatment by Australian Plaster Acoustics. Our products are developed and designed, based on our extensive know-how in the field of plaster acoustics and noise reduction.
- If you have a high ceiling, placing a suspended ceiling underneath will make a considerable difference.
- Replacing existing plasterboard with perforated panels or Quiet Sound tiles may significantly improve noise reduction.
- In much the same way, installing an acoustic panel wall will result in a much higher noise reduction factor (NRC).
Reduce your stress at work and ensure physical and mental rest at home thanks to the easy-to- install acoustic treatment offered by Australian Plaster Acoustics.
Tip: Acoustic design will achieve its optimum and most cost effective potential when it is considered early in concept or masterplanning stage. The sooner an acoustic engineer is engaged, the higher your chances of avoiding costly retrofit solutions.
