The cafeteria is a gathering place for students and employees. Unfortunately, most cafeterias lack the proper cafeteria soundproofing products needed to keep their space enjoyable.
With the large, open layout, tiled floor and hard, reflective surfaces, sound bounces around the room. This causes unwanted background noise. Your patrons will raise their voice to be heard over the noise. As crowds increase, so does the volume level.
If you’re able to ask this question, you probably haven’t spent a lot of time in your cafeteria lately. School cafeterias, in particular, can be incredibly noisy. The problem is not just the sheer number of kids moving through the cafeteria, but the way cafeterias are constructed. For cleaning purposes, they’re often rife with reflective surfaces and may be very long and wide open spaces. This room construction is the perfect recipe for an echo chamber.
This cafeteria environment allows echoes to thrive, which means all manner of sounds bouncing against each other. This situation makes cafeteria noise control extremely challenging, and a cafeteria soundproofing solution needs to provide not only cafeteria noise reduction but also sound absorption to control those echoes.
Without proper sound absorption, even if you prevent sound from escaping the cafeteria to other parts of the facility, you will still be at the mercy of a cacophony of noise that can make it impossible for people in the cafeteria to communicate or hear themselves think. For this reason, some managers or faculties may feel that soundproofing a cafeteria is a pointless exercise — that it just can’t be done. But they haven’t heard of Soundproof Cow.
Fortunately, Soundproof Cow understands all the different kinds of noise that you can struggle with, and we have solutions for every situation. We have ways to both block sound and dampen sound. We have methods of controlling both standard airborne sound and vibratory noise. Give us a chance, and we’ll have your cafeteria noise as under control as it can possibly be.
Trust Soundproof Cow to provide solutions that:
• Absorb and control the echoes that create a cacophony and disturb diners in your cafeteria
• Dampen harsher sounds to make it easier for cafeteria diners to communicate with one another or for teachers to give instructions to students
• Keep the sounds of your cafeteria from bleeding through and interfering with other areas of your school or office so that you can keep your cafeteria up and running as needed without distracting other students or employees who are working
The unique dimensions and properties of a cafeteria environment require some special soundproofing solutions. Fortunately, Soundproof Cow has you covered. While you could completely soundproof the cafeteria with our Quiet Barrier™ HD Soundproofing Composite or the ISOTRAX™ Soundproofing System, it may not be feasible. What you really need is to find a way to deal with that echo.
Soundproofing solutions like our Hanging Baffles, Udderly Quiet™ Anechoic Studio Foam and Echo Absorber™ Acoustic Panels allow you to effectively control the sound in your cafeteria without disrupting its general environment. We even offer acoustic panels wrapped in attractive art pieces to enhance your cafeteria décor while you dampen unwanted sound.
Best of all, our soundproofing solutions are affordable and easy to install. You don’t need to bring in any experts or close down the cafeteria for the day to start using our soundproofing solutions. Some of our materials you can simply stick into place or hang from fixtures. Even our products that require a little more effort you can still install without any special tools.
Order our soundproofing products for your cafeteria, and hear the difference for yourself! We can even give you a free acoustic analysis to help you decide.
