How To Improve Sports Hall Acoustics

When sports halls are empty sounds are able to travel without interruption where they eventually bounce off walls and reverberate. This creates an echo and amplifies noises, so they sound much louder than they really are. The most effective way to improve sports hall acoustics is with wall panels, which are designed to absorb sound waves so they can’t bounce. We have designed a product just for this task called TVS ABSorb Sport Panels.

TVS ABSorb Sport Panels can be installed on any wall or solid surface to significantly reduce reverberation and noise amplification in sports halls. Another important aspect of sports hall acoustics is the floor. This should absorb impacts so that sounds do not bounce off the surface.

TVS ABSorb Sport Panels

The way TVS ABSorb Sport Panels work is they have a fabric cover that absorbs sound waves with no bounce back. The unique texture of the fabric cover absorbs sounds better than curtains and other inferior acoustic devices.

The fabric cover is available in 80 colours so you can create a colour scheme or blend the panels with your walls. The panels are ball impact resistant, passing DIN 18032-3, and they are fire resistant to all relevant British Standards.

TVS ABSorb Sport Panels are by far the best acoustic solution for sports halls because they can be installed at low and high levels. If you have a solid roof, they can also be installed on the roof. Once installed, these panels significantly reduce noise reverberation and transfers, bringing higher quality acoustics to your sports hall.

Acoustic Sports Impact Panel is an impact resistant Class A acoustic absorber for usage in sports halls, five-a-side pitches, gyms and event centres. They have undergone extensive impact testing to ensure their suitability for use within sports halls. As one of the only acoustic panels to be impact resistant to DIN 18032-3, their versatility allows them to be installed at low levels in areas where traditional acoustic panels would be susceptible to knocks and damage.

Available in a variety of colours that can brighten and add interest to any space.

Other Uses For Acoustic Panels

You can use sports hall acoustic panels to reduce noise during sports and other activities like concerts, hospitality events and parents evenings. We supply schools, gyms, fitness studios, hotels, leisure centres and many other types of business with our acoustic panels. They are designed for large spaces like sports halls, but they work just as well in smaller commercial spaces.

There is a perceptible difference in acoustic quality once our acoustic panels have been installed. Your sports hall will be quieter and less of an echo chamber. They are available in a range of colours and can be installed in minutes.
