To ensure good acoustic health and well-being for teachers and students says Maro, it is essential to focus on the three sources of noise pollution — external, internal and mechanical — and tackle each area individually.
How Knauf Insulation can help
As an example, Knauf Insulation’s Mineral Wool solutions exceed the acoustic standards of Building Bulletin 93 — recognised standards in the UK for school noise levels, reverberation times and sound insulation.
These standards also set minimum noise levels for new build schools and schools under renovation and cover every educational aspect from primary school rooms, music areas and lecture halls to libraries, pools and dining areas.
