Noise Control

The high acoustic performance Eckoustic® Functional Panels (EFPs) offer an economic, effective way to reduce background noise and reverberation in indoor swimming pools, gyms and other recreational facilities. Easy to install and maintain, the attractive wall and ceiling EFPs are available in virtually any color, allowing them to be color-specified to match or contrast with any facility décor. Thanks to superb, sound-absorption properties of EFPs, continuous surface treatment is not required to achieve the desired room noise reduction.

Bells and Whistles

In Ohio, Wooster Parks and Recreation's old rectangle-shaped pool built in 1968 just didn't have the bells and whistles needed to attract families and was costly to operate. In 2007, the pool was converted to a SprayGround® and attendance soared by 1,400 percent. (Yes, that's right, 1,400 percent!), operating costs decreased by 67 percent, and income increased by 100 percent. The area now attracts families from throughout the region.
