Saint-Gobain Ecophon provides new solution for swimming pools that not only improves the acoustics, but are water, corrosion and chloride-resistant. These Ecophon products improve safety, increase visitor wellbeing and satisfaction, increase staff wellbeing, and improve communication between a coach and students during swimming sessions. 181494_swimming_pool_with_indoor_laps_3600px.jpg Pool areas are often very lively and noisy places where sound bounces off the hard surfaces of ceilings, walls and floors, and spreads across the surface of the water. It is important to remember that these environments not only are for fun and games, they are also workplaces. For instance, swimming coaches need to be able to instruct swimmers and lifeguards need to quickly be able to determine what could be a call for help or a possibly serious incident. Challenges • Constant high noise levels. • Large open spaces where sound propagates freely. • Poor speech clarity. • High humidity, high temperatures, chloride and the risk of direct water splashes. Solution • Use a wall-to-wall sound-absorbing ceiling. • Add wall absorbers wherever possible and at least on two adjacent walls. • Add free-hanging units where a wall-to-wall ceiling is not applicable. • Use solutions that are water-resistant, chloride-resistant, corrosion-resistant and can withstand high humidity and high temperatures.
