Swimming Pool Acoustics
Posted on 25 April 2018
With reverberation and noise issues so prevalent in indoor pools, going to the local swimming pool can often be noisy, which can make it difficult to communicate and interrupt your focus. Pacy & Wheatley Acoustics provide expert acoustic solutions, helping minimise reverberation issues for swimming pools across the UK, working on projects like the Bvlgari Hotel in London.
Echoes and reverberation issues are incredibly common in indoor swimming pools due to the materials commonly used in constructing the floors, walls and ceilings. These spaces are often dominated by incredibly hard materials, such as tiles, concrete blocks and large areas of glass to allow for natural light. Sound is reflected from these hard surfaces, bouncing back into the airspace of the indoor swimming pool. This creates the reverberation issues common in most swimming pools, making for a noisy environment with low speech intelligibility.
At Pacy & Wheatley Acoustics, we provide expert design and installation of a range of acoustic solutions for commercial swimming pools throughout the country. One of our popular products is the Rockfon Mono Acoustic TE, perfect for use in swimming pools due to its humidity resistance. It can also be installed at temperatures from 0°C to 40°C.
Our team worked on the swimming pool area of the prestigious Bvlgari Hotel in Knightsbridge, London. The project involved the installation of a Seamless Acoustic Solution to the 350m2 ceiling area in the swimming pool and spa areas of the hotel.

Swimming pools, especially those located in spa areas, should encourage relaxation. Unfortunately, because of the reverberation issues common in indoor swimming pools, they are often loud, with low speech intelligibility. These issues can all be solved with the installation of a Seamless Acoustic Solution. Read more about how we can help minimise noise and reverberation issues, with our seamless Acoustic solutions.
