Noise Control Solutions for

Bring clarity to performing arts spaces and amplify the theatrical experience with modern acoustical solutions.

Create an Immersive Experience that Audiences Will Never Forget

In many spaces, such as office buildings, restaurants, and schools, the goal is to reduce reverberation — the time it takes for sound to decay by 60 decibels.

By reducing reverb time, you increase privacy and create a more engaging environment. However, performing arts centers depend on that reverberation to ensure voices and music are clearly dispersed throughout the auditorium, creating an optimal listening experience.

With poor acoustics, the audience doesn’t hear sounds the way they’re intended, which often robs them of a truly captivating performance. Further, noise outside the theater, like a building’s HVAC system or outside train and traffic noise, can invade the space and spoil the experience even more. It’s time to partner with an acoustical expert to give audiences the show of a lifetime.
