The Päijät-Häme Central Hospital in Finland recently underwent a major renovation, adding an impressive 33,600 square meters of new office space to the hospital, making it one of the largest in Finland. But with such a large and busy space, it was crucial to ensure that the acoustics were of the highest standard.
Acoustic Solutions by Rockfon
Rockfon's team of experts set out to revolutionise the soundscape of the hospital by installing over 20,000 square meters of acoustic ceilings throughout the hospital, using a variety of their products to ensure that every area had the perfect sound environment. In the main corridors and general areas of the hospital, Rockfon Sonar ceiling tiles were chosen for their ability to absorb sound and reduce echo, creating a soothing atmosphere.
Hygiene at the Forefront
In areas that required higher levels of hygiene, such as the maternity ward and operating theatres, Rockfon Hygienic and Hygienic Plus tiles were installed. These tiles are made with easy to clean materials and are perfect for areas where infection control is a top priority. Since the completion of the project, these product lines have been replaced by the new Rockfon CleanSpace product family, further emphasising the focus on hygiene.
Eliminating Echo in Challenging Spaces
The new hospital building posed challenges in terms of acoustics, such as its impressive two-story high cafeteria. But thanks to the expert installation of Rockfon products, echo is now a thing of the past. Patients, staff, and visitors can enjoy a truly pleasant and peaceful sound environment in all areas of the hospital, no matter how challenging the space.
