Soundproofing and sound insulation for schools and nurseries

What are the challenges when soundproofing schools and nurseries?

Rapid footsteps, noisy toys, happy shouting, singing, dancing, loud role-playing as warring knights or racing police cars: A child's world is loud and colourful. The high number of difference noise sources in schools and nurseries ensures that the sound level in these spaces increase considerably fast and thus become an issue for children and educators/teachers alike. For constant noise not only damages the hearing, it also increases stress and the risk of heart and circulatory problems.
Many noise sources in nurseries and schools increase the sound level in the room. Without sufficient sound insulation, even normal nursery and school noise can become an issue for small and large ears.
Children in the nursery make noise with instruments

Poor room acoustics in the classroom promote reverberation

The architectonic features in classrooms mostly amplify the noise level. Hard, smooth and therefore very sound-reflective materials of walls, ceilings, wooden furniture and boards reflect the sound. As a result noises remain the room particularly long and overlay each other. This affects above all the intelligibility of speech and communication.
Sound-reflecting surfaces in classrooms cause long reverberation times. As a result, individual sounds overlay each other and create noise. Sound absorbers reduce reverberation and improve the room acoustics.

Learning without noise: What are the benefits of sound insulation in nurseries and classrooms?

DIN 18041, entitled "Acoustic quality in rooms" applies to the acoustic design of classrooms in schools and group rooms in nurseries. This standard contains various stating points for improving the room acoustics, as well as arguments for using sound absorbers.

Studies prove that concentration and memory can deteriorate by up to 20% in noisy situations. Good voice intelligibility and sufficient peace are critical in classrooms in schools or lecture theatres. If the acoustics in the room are balanced, this not only simplifies listening and concentration, but also the use of a foreign language, for example. In addition, less noise protects the hearing and promotes health.

Sound insulation in schools and nurseries reduces reverberation, improves room acoustics and provides the necessary calm. The use of sound absorbers can increase concentration by up to 20% and this simplifies learning.

How does effective sound insulation in schools and nurseries work?

In order to reduce noise, first the ceilings and walls in the classroom or nursery are fitted with acoustic absorbers. The insert of an acoustic ceiling is suitable for this. In most cases, fitting sound absorbers to around 20 – 30% of the wall and ceiling area is enough for lowering the noise level, reducing reverberation and improving speech intelligibility.

Above all, speech is transported in the medium and high frequency range. The use of broadband absorbers is therefore sensible. Our aixFOAM sound insulation mats are specifically designed for these frequency ranges and therefore are perfect for soundproofing in classrooms. The acoustic foam sound absorbers absorb disturbing sound and shorten the reverberation time in the octave bands from 125 to 4000 Hz recommended for classrooms.

What role does fire proofing play when soundproofing schools and nurseries?

The subject of safety is especially important, above all in buildings where children congregate. The fire protection directive DIN 4102 B1 frequently applies to universities, schools and nurseries. We at aixFOAM therefore offer sound absorbers which meet these requirements and, in the worst case, ensure the necessary safety of the children or students. Our aixFOAM experts are happy to help you choose the right sound insulation products for the applicable fire safety conditions in your school or nursery.
As manufacturer of sound absorbers, we are not allowed to advise on fire protection, we can only recommend the right products for your applicable fire protection provisions. So ideally you should find out first from your architect or fire safety officer.
