When conducting hearing tests it is important that the audiometric room is properly equipped to carry out the tests successfully and in order to do this the room must be free from reverberant noise which may obscure results. During a test the client is asked to listen and respond to pure tone sounds at various volumes and pitches, the information is also recorded onto a computer and used to program hearing aids correctly, if they are required. It is very important that the sounds that are heard and recorded and the responses which are given are accurately interpreted. The audiometric room shown above was treated for reverberant noise using two popular products, Artsorba Canvas and Foamsorba. The Artsorba Canvas can be painted with waterbased emulsion paint, in this case the panels were painted white to match the walls and the Foamsorba was used on the adjacent walls as a decorative feature. The panels enabled hearing tests to be carried out more accurately whilst also making a considerable difference to the environment within the room. Many of the staff and visitors within the centre commented on how much softer and quieter the environment was and how it was a more pleasant experience.
