Why is NRC important to your clients?
Your clients are thinking about sounds absorption, are you? According to Rockfon, NRC or Noise Reduction Coefficient represents of the amount of sound energy absorbed upon striking a particular surface. This number is important, not only in places like concert halls and large office buildings, but doctor’s offices and restaurants too.
Noise pollution isn’t just annoying; it can heighten stress, disrupt your sleep, and even lead to heart disease. Researchers at the University of Michigan estimate that about one-third of Americans are exposed to harmful noise, and might be at risk of noise-related health problems. So what can you do to help?
