Projects by Application
Theaters / Performing Arts
Typically auditoriums and theaters have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and there is a need for sound reduction. Adding sound control products such as acoustical wall panels will reduce ambient noise during events.
These sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of the auditorium, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for sound reduction within the facility addressed.
Gymnasiums / Spas
Typically these large rooms have hard reflective walls and floors such as concrete block and there is a need for noise reduction. Adding noise control products such as hanging baffles or wall panels will increase speech intelligibility and reduce ambient noise during events for greater usage of the room.
These sound absorption materials should be planned into the design of the gym or multipurpose room, however they can be added as a retrofit application as the need for noise reduction within the facility is addressed.
Corporate / Offices
For offices in the design phase, we employ sophisticated acoustical modeling software to predict and analyze prospective office acoustics. In offices that are already built, we use state-of-the-art acoustical measurement technology and predictive modeling to analyze existing office acoustics and evaluate alternative remedies for acoustical problems.
Office acoustics have a direct correlation to worker productivity, with workplace studies citing noise as the most significant distraction. In recent years, office speech privacy issues have also become a greater concern. We consult with architects, interior designers, and facilities management professionals to create office acoustics and work environments that manage sound and control noise in office environments—supporting performance, productivity, and collaborative workplace objectives.
Acoustical design and utilization in classrooms is extremely important. Good acoustical design enhances clarity of speech and limits background noises to protect speech integrity for both students and teachers, as well as dampen excessive noise that is disruptive to the learning process. Teachers are at risk for vocal injury if they need to talk over the classroom noise to be heard by students. Speech perception, student behavior, and educational outcomes are affected by the architectural design of a classroom, including surface treatments.
Hotels / Spas
In the hospitality industry, noise control is an important consideration. Businesses like these depend upon making visitors comfortable and providing a quiet space, restful environment is required.
Museums are a popular stop for families, field trips, and weekend outings. These facilities have can get pretty crowded, but are expected to remain quiet. International Acoustics, Inc. has is best source for products and knowledge to soundproof any size hall or gallery.
No recording studio, whether project or commercial, is complete without proper acoustical isolation, absorption and diffusion.
Typically, slap echo, flutter echo, standing waves, along with a loss of clarity in the lower frequency range, plague the small room designs used for recording studios. Don’t let your recording studio design be the reason your recordings don’t translate properly when room modes and phase canceling leave your room far from flat.
