Acoustics in hygienically demanding areas: Porous absorbers and space specific hygiene regulations. This was what Ingrid Fuchs (Concept Developer – Healthcare at Ecophon in Germany) gave a presentation on at DAGA 2014 in Oldenburg, Germany.

Healthcare facilities are subject to hygiene requirements and cleanability of acoustic material is a matter to consider. Acoustically inadequate workplaces negatively affect the working staff – and patients. Ingrid Fuchs reveals in her paper basic data and results of relevant studies facilitating knowledge interaction and exchange between the disciplines of architecture, hygiene and acoustics.
