Boost learning in the classroom

Students spend up to 20% of their waking hours in schools. So it’s vital that classrooms are healthy, pleasant environments that make studying and learning as effective and comfortable as possible.

Inspiring design choices that deliver real benefits to your clients

Wouldn’t it be great if you could help your education clients improve learning just by specifying the right kind of acoustic ceilings or walls? Or even save them money by using acoustic gypsum products that improve air quality and thereby reduce staff recruitment costs? With Knauf Danoline, you can.

35% increase in performance

Acoustic ceilings and walls don’t just look good, they also perform exceptionally well in classroom settings. In fact, acoustic gypsum ceilings have been shown to improve students’ ability to identify words correctly by up to 35% . That’s got to be worth top marks from your client?

17% reduction in student absence

Research also shows that improved air quality can improve learning ability in schools by 10% and reduce student absence by up to 17% . And let’s not forget the other people in the classroom – the teachers. A 2013 study showed that teachers who work in good acoustic conditions have higher job satisfaction and are less likely to move on, meaning your clients need to spend less time and money recruiting new staff.

As a public builder we have two considerations when chosing an acoustic material. One: live up to requirements and regulations. Two: Ensure short term budget and long term service life. That's why we chose gypsum acoustic ceilings. Gypsum is a robust, durable material.
