Hotels test snore absorption room


Snoring sufferers may now be able to sleep easier thanks to a snore absorption room that's helping the sleep deprived tune out and nod off from their noisy partners.

The new room, which is being tested by Crowne Plaza is a result of research revealing more than half of UK couples are losing between one and five hours sleep a night due to the snoring and snuffling of their partners. That's up to a decade of lost sleep over a lifetime.

And the snore absorption room is not only set to cure sleepless nights, but potentially marriages as well. The research reveals three in ten couples have come close to splitting up because snoring is coming between them. Plus, as 50% of UK couples complain their partner's snoring can ruin their holiday, a snore absorption room is also being tested in nine Crowne Plaza hotels across Europe and the Middle East.

In the UK, the snore absorption room is being trialled at the Crowne Plaza London The City. The room uses proven technology to help reduce the dreaded, repetitive nasal noise. The technology includes:

  • Sound proofing on walls to absorb the loud frequencies, deflect the sound waves and minimize the impact of snoring. The walls use egg box style foam which reduces the noise reverberating in the room

  • A specially designed sound absorbing head board that will work together with the sound proof walling to muffle the echo within the room

  • An anti-snoring bed wedge which acts as a body pillow, encouraging snoring guests to sleep on their sides or upright. Lying flat on your back makes the base of the tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of the throat which causes snoring

  • An anti-snoring pillow which uses rare neodymium magnets to create a natural magnetic field, opening the airways and stiffening the upper palate which vibrates during snoring

  • A white noise machine which is proven to help drown out the droning snoring noise and help sleep and relaxation

Dr Chris Idzikowski, a sleep expert, said, "Snoring is a common problem and whilst it's thought of as a male problem, women can suffer from it as well. Snoring is made by vibrations of the soft palate and tissue in the mouth, nose and throat. There are lots of things you can do to help control the problem and I'm pleased to see Crowne Plaza trialling a Snore Absorption room to try to reduce the impact of snoring."

All this technology can be replicated with a $1 pair of silicone earplugs.

create a natural magnetic field

Could we have a physicist's definition of an unnatural magnetic field?

@Jason Lok, in my experience sometimes yes, sometimes no... but i'm a regular plug wearer, and non-snorer (ladies!)

I use a fan for white noise and sleep like a baby. Also blocks the noise of cars, sodai gomi collecting trucks at 5 am in the morning, the people selling those silly poles for drying your clothes at 5:30 am, the lady 4 floors down taking the change out of the soda machine at 6am, all those scooters with newspapers, kids screaming at each other because they are all spoiled little brats or daf, even whn their friends are only two hands away from their face...et.c etc. oh yeah, Aysugi Base US Jets, and Japanese P2 and others. Fan white noise..my friend

If you're sleeping like a baby, how do you know those people are up at 5am?

Jonathan, probably an electromagnetic induced one. Nevertheless, the statement that a magnetic field opens the airwaves and stiffens the palate is just populist belief not supported by scientific research. same with the magnetic water, but at least that belief led to some interesting discoveries

"three in ten couples have come close to splitting up because snoring has come between them"

This is so sad. Whatever happened to "til death do we part "?
