Sports swimming pool in Györ, Hongarije


Sound absorption wood wool for pleasant acoustics 


Challenge. Create. Care.

The noise levels in swimming pools can become almost intolerable if the right acoustic solutions are not in place. As sound is amplified as it reverberates around the swimming hall with mostly concrete, tiles and glass.



The architect was looking for a long-lasting material that can withstand wet conditions whilst also offering good sound absorption and pleasing aesthetics. The Györ City Indoor Swimming Pool (Györ Városi Fedett Sportuszoda) is in a complex which accommodates large numbers of people who also come to use the gymnastics hall, concert halls, theatres, and studios. Without good sound absorption the sound levels would be unacceptable.

Wood wool panels were chosen that are factory painted in yellow and nature tone. These wood wool panels are designed to withstand the extreme conditions of an indoor swimming pool environment.
The timber materials are safe and fully retain their strength and shape whilst absorbing and releasing moisture.



They also provide colour and aesthetic appeal to the pool area. The wood wool boards were surface-treated with cherry coloured glaze and  used in conjunction with Heraklith boards painted yellow and suspended in a false ceiling support structure.
