When one sets the objective of acoustical improvement for a swimming pool, a gymnasium or other sports halls and when one wishes to achieve it through the use of absorbing materials allowing to limit reverberation, ITS offers a wide choice of solutions for many applications related to soundproofing.
ITS offers quality products and services at a reasonable cost in response to all needs (new or renovation) in relation to compliance with specifications relating to acoustic comfort, e.g. based (in France) on the standard NF P 90-207 Sports halls - Acoustics or on other documents inspired by it, or (elsewhere) on other locally applicable documents (e.g. in Germany the standard DIN 18041).
The acoustical improvement devices for swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls marketed by ITS make it possible to reduce the amplification of noise due to the reverberation phenomenon and to limit its propagation in the considered interior spaces (and, also - even if not always a particular attention is paid to that, towards the adjacent spaces, interior or exterior).
In the case of swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls for which the implementation of one of the acoustical improvement devices offered by ITS has been carried out:
- the reverberation time always conforms to specified values
- the decrease in sound level by doubling the distance to a sound source (spatial sound decrease) always conforms to the specified values
- the ambient sound level is significantly reduced: a reduction in the sound pressure level of 5 dBA or more can be obtained in many common applications, offering in all cases to the occupants the necessary hearing comfort
The acoustical improvement devices for swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls marketed by ITS generally consist of:
- either wall-mounted acoustic insulation panels: painted metal (or wood), often: perforated (holes being circular, square or in the form of slots) with lining in mineral fiber or polyester wool or M1 acoustic foam
- either suspended acoustic ceiling tiles: painted metal (or wood) with mineral fiber or polyester wool filling or M1 acoustic foam
- either suspended baffles (or other elements) in mineral fiber or polyester wool or M1 acoustic foam
Some of these constructive products and systems can have an absorption coefficient of more than 90% at mid and high frequencies (where the maximum of human hearing sensitivity is located) as standard (higher performances can be obtained at using special constructions).
With regard to the constructive products and systems offered by ITS, their performance is measured in the laboratory according to the standards in force:
- their sound absorption coefficient according to NF EN ISO 354 Acoustics standards - measurement of sound absorption in a reverberation room and NF EN ISO 11654 Acoustics - Sound absorbers for use in buildings. Rating of sound absorption
The acoustical improvement devices for swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls offered by ITS can be delivered in the form of a ready-to-assemble kit with assembly instructions or else be installed turnkey.
An in-situ acoustic performance guarantee is issued for all installations of acoustical improvement devices for swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls.

ITS markets acoustical improvement devices for swimming pools, gymnasiums and other sports halls
The design and the development of absorbing linings with a suitable acoustical performance for medium frequencies (often: installed on walls), complementing materials installed in under-roofing (which mainly have an efficiency at high frequencies) is a specialty of ITS:
- these are in particular multilayered acoustic structures with, at the front, a perforated protection whose dimensional characteristics (geometry and size of the holes, perforation rate, thickness) are the subject of in-depth studies, according to the needs of each project (i.e. frequency band of interest, targeted absorption coefficient), when combined with a (porous) filling material, located at the rear, whose properties (e.g. resistance to the passage of air, porosity ) and thickness are involved in the overall acoustic performance and price (depending on installation conditions)
