Acoustics in the Educational Setting
Fire life safety and acoustic protection are critical background elements of any successful educational intuitions. Providing robust and reliable protection for students and staff alike while creating a peaceful environment free of distractions for students to excel in.
Sound leakage between rooms is not just a distraction for office workers, but also represents a significant negative impact on students’ ability to succeed. Acoustic leakage pulls students away from their work while also increasing stress, inattentiveness, anxiety, and forgetfulness.
Finding the Best Value Instead of Lowest Cost
Facilities leads in educational institutions are faced with the difficult prospect of balancing the needs of the students, staff, and facility with tight budgetary constraints. For years traditional sleeve and putty solutions have been the go-to in these occupancies due to their low initial cost, leaving these same facilities with on-going maintenance and operating costs that draw on budgets for years.
Many of these institutions have migrated to using EZ-Path® Fire-rated and Smoke and Acoustical Pathways as the best value in pathway solution for their facilities. EZ-Path® Pathways are the only third-party verified maintenance free cable pathway solution that they trust to protect students, staff, and assets while eliminating maintenance burdens that other cable pathway products suffer from.
EZ-Path®’s unique maintenance free design eliminates on-going operating expenses of maintaining fire, smoke, and acoustic seals from the day it is installed through the foreseeable lifecycle of the building.

Once installed, each device in the EZ Path family provides a reliable robust seal that is self-maintaining. Allowing you to focus on the demands of students and staff without compromising on safety or acoustical performance.
Schools can be a noisy place, the creation of a peaceful learning friendly environment is constantly be challenged by the ruckus in the hall and the noise of neighboring classrooms. Maintaining proper acoustical seals is critical to ensure that students and staff have the setting that they both need to be successful on their educational journey. EZ Path Pathways provide the most robust and reliable seal against acoustics compared to any other pathway product on the market. Their unique self-sealing design ensures that they provide consistent protection no matter the circumstances in a 100% maintenance free package.
Traditional methods of achieving fire and smoke seals require the user to remove and re-apply hand packed putties into conduit sleeves from both sides of each wall penetrated whenever cables are added or removed from your cable pathway. EZ Path eliminates this time-consuming process, saving valuable time making you more efficient and allowing you to get more done.
