Supportive design will promote well-being amongst patients and staff, contributing to a faster patient recovery. Intensive care work is generally dependent on high staffing levels and a high occurrence of medical technical equipment. This can lead to noise levels that are higher than what is found in most types of hospital wards.

  • The high intensity of staff, monitoring devices, pumps etc. creates high noise levels which decreases the sleep quality for the patient.
  • Post operative recovery departments often consist of large open rooms. Room acoustics needs to be studied in order to create a comfortable and functional environment.
Ecophon's suggestion
  • Reverberation time 0.4 s or less. Highest value 250 - 4000 Hz. 125 Hz: 20% higher value permitted. Corresponds to 105% of floor surface covered with Absorption Class A (according to EN ISO 11654).


    • A high level of hygiene must be maintained around the patient in order prevent infection. All surfaces need to be cleanable and able to withstand disinfectants.
    Product recommendation
    • Ecophon Hygiene offers a robust acoustic ceiling practically developed for controlled environments. Close to zero emissions and resilient to bacterial growth makes it a strong candidate for the most challenging healthcare environments.

    Indoor climate

    The indoor environment has a major impact on people’s health. The building materials, the ventilation, the furnishing, the cleaning routines and the activities are factors that all influence the indoor climate.
