Why is acoustic design important?
1 People don’t want to hear waste water noise
With 90% of people agreeing that they don’t like waste water noise but often finding themselves being disturbed by such sounds it’s important to realise that this is an issue that affects most people in the majority of bathroom settings.
2 Acoustically-optimised buildings have the scope to enhance revenue
In a survey conducted by Geberit in 2014, 55% of participants agreed that they would happily pay more rent to reduce sanitary noise – providing developers with the scope to withdraw larger margins in return for the simple solutions of investing in acoustically designed bathroom solutions.
3 It enhances wellbeing
Modern society is a busy world, a non-stop, connected world that we struggle to switch off from. With sanitary noise often at its most noticeable when trying to sleep, by considering and implementing acoustically optimised bathroom solutions, sounds can be almost eliminated completely allowing for quality and undisturbed sleep ultimately benefiting factors such as energy and mood.
