Throughout a hospital there are a number of activities that generate an extra amount of humidity. Toilets and bathrooms for patients along with dressing rooms for staff are all examples to this. Physiotherapy pools can also be added.
Pool rooms or other areas for activity and training need to be studied from an acoustic point of view. The need for ceramic tiles on floors and walls can imply that the ceiling is the only surface available to cover with sound absorbing material.
Equipment used in disinfection or sterilisation rooms can produce disturbing noise. To bring the noise level down, it is important to use high performance acoustic ceilings.
Influence of climate
ceiling systems have been tested and approved for use in environments with higher relative humidity than most hospital rooms.
