A good acoustic environment in healthcare settings is important for the well-being of both patients and staff. Poor acoustics can disrupt sleep and be a source of irritation to patients.
Acoustical treatments however, vary in different zones. General wards, reception areas, laboratories and disinfectant rooms are acoustically treated differently from audiometric rooms, equipment rooms and specialised treatment rooms.
dB Acoustics has installed acoustic systems for many healthcare facilities in Singapore. Acoustical treatments include:
In 2017, Ren Ci started a nursing home in Teck Ghee, Ang Mo Kio. The hard surfaces at the reception area, combined with heavy traffic flow especially during peak periods, give rise to a noisy environment. Ecophon Focus A acoustic ceiling panels were used to absorb these unwanted sound reflections, thus creating a comfortable environment for the residents and staffs.
Sengkang General Hospital
One of the many facilities and services provided by Sengkang General and Community Hospitals is audiometry. Given the noise sensitivity of audiometric rooms, the acoustic requirements are very stringent. dB Acoustics erected the audiometric rooms in SKGH with high acoustic performance to meet the client's requirements.
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital @ Yishun
Metal awnings providing shade against the sun and rain can become a noise problem during heavy rain. Rain-impact noise can enter buildings and radiate to neighbouring buildings, creating unacceptable noise levels that interfere with patients’ rest and disrupt doctors’ concentration.
dB Acoustics’ acoustical treatments for rain-impact noise: spraying layers of vibration damping compounds on these metal awnings to absorb the vibration noise.
Tan Tock Seng Hospital
A curved acoustic ceiling and acoustic wall panels were installed at the TTSH Annex 2, K & N building.
Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital
High quality acoustic materials were installed at various locations within Mount Elizabeth Novena hospital.
