AURALEX ACOUSTICS CUTS THE NOISE DOWN TO SIZE AT WINFIELD CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

LAS VEGAS, NV — Try putting several hundred elementary school students together in one gymnasium and just see how loud it can get. Winfield City Elementary School is all too familiar with this scenario and has thus employed the help of The Bailey Brothers Music Company, a full-service installation and retailer company based in Alabama, and Auralex Acoustics (InfoComm 2008, Booth C4984) to help bring down extreme noise levels.

The School’s gymnasium serves as a multi-purpose room—sometimes serving as a gymnasium, other times as an additional seating area for the adjacent auditorium, which is separated by an electrical curtain. During large school productions/meetings, additional bleachers are moved into the gymnasium, acting as an extension to the room.

The acoustical renovation included [90] Auralex C44 ProPanels installed on the walls and [16] 4’x25’ custom ProBanners placed on the ceiling. As the newest addition to Auralex’s ProPanel product line, the Elite C44 ProPanel is a 4′x4′ absorption panel in a 2″ thickness, providing a cost-effective and professional broadband treatment option when a significant amount of coverage is needed. Its Overall NRC of 1.05 makes it the perfect choice for controlling many common acoustical problems at a wide range of frequencies. Auralex ProBanners are designed to reduce reverberation and reflection in gymnasiums, arenas, sanctuaries, restaurants, and clubs; are available in PVC, nylon, or fabric finishes; are Class A Flame Retardant and are acoustically tested for performance in accordance with ASTM C423.

“Auralex’s products were installed in Winfield High School’s band room a few years ago, and we were beyond impressed with the product’s performance,? says Terrell Kirkpatrick, superintendent of Winfield City Schools. “When we decided to acoustically refine the elementary school’s gymnasium, Auralex was our first and only choice, and we are equally as happy with the results.?
