Sports Hall Acoustics - Noise Control for Sports Halls
Sports Centre Acoustics
Gyms and indoor sports halls are generally much larger spaces than standard classrooms and because the reverberation time is related to the volume of a room, the larger the room the longer the reverberation time will be without significant noise control. BB93 has recommended guidlines for internal ambient noise levels and reverberation times but these are often pushed to the limit, if not exceeded, due to costs involved with larger scale acoustic treatment and alternative performance standards have been suggested by other professional bodies which allow for longer reverberation times.
Sports halls on school sites are required under the Building Regulations to comply with BB93 with respect to sound insulation, reverberation times and internal ambient noise levels.
Good acoustic design is important as long reverberation times lead to:
The greater the background noise the more the need to shout and currently sports teachers experience significantly more voice
and throat problems than teachers of other subjects.
