#HealthyArchitecture is a commitment to promoting health, wellbeing, and comfort in design. Through the continued innovation of sound absorbing products, BASWA acoustic commits to improving long-term occupant health and wellbeing.
Remedying excessively reverberant spaces prevents the negative effects noise has on human health. Extensive research shows that sound levels of 85 dB or greater are detrimental to human health and not only cause hearing loss, but over an extended period of exposure can also cause elevated blood pressure, loss of sleep, increased heart rate, cardiovascular constriction, and reduced productivity. By decreasing noise pollution in everyday environments such as restaurants, residences, museums, educational institutions, and corporate offices, designers can positively influence healthy living.
#HealthyArchitecture has the power to amplify lives.
