The most recommended acoustic solutions for the hospitality industry
In order to arrive at the right acoustic atmosphere and ambiance, we must first investigate a number of things:
1. Which room(s) is (are) involved?
Our experience shows that most acoustic problems occur in:
- the café-restaurant,
- the meeting room,
- at the reception desk
- in the stairwells and long corridors.
2. Which laws and regulations do we have to take into account?
If we look at laws and regulations regarding acoustics in The Netherlands, only the Dutch Working Conditions Act that sets frameworks for the health, safety and welfare of employees applies.
The provisions on noise standards in the Dutch Activities Decree have to do with the noise that the neighbours of a catering business may hear in the living rooms and bedrooms of homes or on the facades of homes. However, no noise requirements are set for noise within the catering establishment. Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg have their own rules.
3. What exactly is the problem?
In order to find out exactly where the problem lies, an acoustic measurement is first performed. Of course, we first need to know exactly how big the problem is and how it arises. We then also look at the interior and ambiance of the space. The solution should not only improve the acoustics, but also aesthetically fit within the experience and expectations of you and your guest.
