Poor acoustics and noise in the workplace are among the most disease-provoking factors in Danish institutions and Danish business life. Poor acoustics degrade speech understanding and increases stress significantly. In the long run, this causes a number of diseases and sickness absences which will soon cost much more than it does to improve acoustic conditions.
The Working Environment Authority, WEA, and building regulations have drawn up instructions for how acoustics should be in e.g. day care centres, multi-person offices, stairwells and more. Therefore, at IAC Acoustics A/S, we developed our own software which, in 10 minutes, can simulate the acoustics of a room and tell you what it takes to provide your rooms/premises with pleasant acoustics which are in line with Danish rules and guidances.
Noise in offices and schools are not always due to bad acoustics alone. Most often, there are several sources of noise which cross each other and, despite otherwise good acoustics, there is still too much noise. In such situations, the noise sources must be located and treated individually. It may be traffic noise from nearby roads, ventilation noise or simply applying a bit of felt under tables and chairs so they do not make noise when they are moved.
We are happy to pay you a visit, providing advice and guidance as well as performing an acoustic analysis. In connection with this, we also prepare a quote on the cost of relevant improvements. Usually, we take a modest fee for performing an acoustic analysis. This is due to our experience being greater and our engineering consultancy being more detailed than that of other companies selling acoustics regulation. If improvements are desired, this fee is deducted from the final invoice, so that the counselling part is free.
