A sunshine story about dupes

Tennis balls on chair legs

A Sunbeam story about dupes. I saw a broadcast on TV Øst on January 8, 2019, about 8-year-old Lærke from 2B in Dianalund, who has a hearing aid. The sounds went straight into her hearing aids, making it difficult for her to listen in class when tables and chairs clattered. The class came up with a pretty clever solution. They punched holes in the tennis balls and put them on the chair legs. This meant that there wasn’t as much noise anymore. The local tennis club was on board with the idea and after a survey of neighboring clubs, they collected 208 balls in total. Lærke felt better because the unnecessary noise was reduced, which is good for all the children, who can concentrate better on their homework.

Reducing unnecessary noise is good for children who are sensitive, have hearing problems or autism. We specialize in chair leg cap, which are a slightly nicer alternative to tennis balls. Check out our acoustic socks/dup chair leg cap Silent Socks. On this page you can find everything in chair leg cap.
