Noise is a constant problem in many creches. Sonic nuisances have negative effects on children and on personnel: buzzing ears, headaches, fatigue etc.
Apart from these short-term effects, unwanted noise in the long-term can deteriorate hearing.
Children have very powerful voices; they can exceed 90 dB, the sonic level of a buzz saw or a pneumatic hammer. This is a worrying: we urgently need to reduce noise in our creches and other school establishments (school canteens, classrooms, common rooms etc).
However, children have to use their voices, as part of their development.
We can solve the problem ‘from within’ by reducing noise intensity.
The installation of acoustic panels in crèches reduces echo in a room, by absorbing the sound.
The effects will be felt immediately!
