HS Engineers has been providing acoustic solutions since 2001, and, with in-house design, manufacturing and installation facilities, can offer a complete service when it comes to Audiology Test Rooms. HS engineers are highly skilled, many are degree qualified and most are members of the Institute of Acoustics. Well established principles of sound insulation should be employed in the design of Audiology rooms and the advice of a specialist in acoustics, such as HS Engineers, should be sought at an early stage. The airborne sound insulation performance requirements of internal partitions are closely linked to intrusive noise criteria. However, another very important factor is “privacy”, that is, the extent to which conversations and activities in one area are audible in an adjacent area. The recommended privacy factor for Audiology rooms is 80, where 75-80 is audible but not intelligible and >80 is inaudible. HSE specialists can assist in all aspects of room design and location in order to achieve maximum performance. Depending upon the use, the specification and budget limitations we can offer rooms/booths from our standard ranges or bespoke facilities, which are tailored to exact requirements.
Audiology facilities need to be acoustically treated for two main reasons:
