Nursing Home Sound Control Curtains

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Well it seemed like a good idea although we do not know if it has been implemented in any nursing homes or hospitals yet. In thisĀ  nurse article it explains how Dr. Krishan Ahuja, Regents researcher and head of the acoustics and aerodynamics branch in the Georgia Tech Research Institute’s (GTRI) Aerospace & Transportation Laboratory, has designed a unique modular system of curtains that blends aesthetics with audio privacy. They would probally be able to use MLV in the sandwich. Although it is heavy Mass Loaded Vinyl can be obtained in weights of half pound per square foot. Now how about creating a portable sound barrier curtain that the nurses can use during their break!
