Preformed acoustic seals were installed by the maintenance crew between guests. The results were nothing short of remarkable.”
Your guests’ ears never rest, not even when they’re sleeping. Throughout the night, guests are likely to hear off-and-on HVAC systems, TVs in adjacent rooms, and luggage carts in hallways.
