Minimising disturbances from noise in healthcare.

Acoustics is a fundamental quality of modern healthcare. As stated in AAAC – Association of Australasian Acoustical Consultants Guideline for Healthcare Facilities.

  • Independent research confirms that noise in the healthcare environment contributes to disturbances and awakenings.
  • Worldwide, the sound levels inside hospitals far exceed the standard of 40 decibels or less, set by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
  • A combination of absorptive and attenuative design is recommended to control this noise
  • For ceilings: Absorption is measured by NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient), Attenuation by CAC (Ceiling Attenuation Class)
