Similar to retail buildings where hard surfaces dominate the structure, Self-storage spaces become huge reverberation chambers that only amplify the already high levels within. Absorbers are key to addressing this problem for the staff inside these buildings. Moreover, acoustic doors and partitions to adjacent office and break-out areas will ensure that quieter areas will remain for professionals to rest. Also, effective building envelope sound insulation and attenuated ventilation paths will help comply with local regulations on controlling noise breakout to nearby homes so that people’s lives won’t be disturbed.
