An organisation needs to be able to inform and train its staff quickly regarding its aims, strategies and new projects. Informed employees can adapt more easily to new conditions and a well-equipped conference room allows a company to inform a large number of people at one time.

  • There is a basic requirement that everyone is able to hear what is being said wherever they are in the room. Good speech intelligibility requires that reverberation time should not be too long.
  • The acoustic ceiling in a conference room is often a combination of absorbing and reflecting surfaces, depending on the size and geometry of the room, as well as materials used for walls and floors. Furniture and other fittings also affect sound propagation in the auditorium.
  • If microphone equipment is being used, echoes may occur if the room’s surfaces are not sufficiently sound absorbent.
Ecophon's suggestion
  • Speech intelligibility and comfort are vital in a conference room, so every factor affecting sound must be taken into account.
  • If the room is larger than 75 m², we recommend that you consult an acoustics expert.
