The woodshop and metalshop can be quite loud, even when wearing proper hearing protection. Sound-absorbing panels will reduce the noise level. More research needed to determine the best placement (closest to which equipment, walls vs. ceilings, etc), panel type (foam, cotton, fabric stretched over wood frames, etc), aesthetics, and cost. Perhaps we can perform a crude test by hanging blankets on the walls.
