How to make an office sound quiet
When sound waves hit a hard surface like walls, floors and windows, the audible energy wave will be reflected into the room as the materials don’t absorb the noise. This causes the overall noise level to rise in the room. Therefore, can the right acoustic materials provide better sound and a healthier indoor environment:
Step 1: The office design and the occupants
The first step in creating an office that sounds quiet is to figure out the different needs of the office workers. How do they like to work, what design solution will benefit their work performance and do they want a collaborative approach in the office?
Once you know what measures to include in the interior design, you can take the next step and look at the sound solutions.
Step 2: What sound solution fit your layout the best?
The quality of sound absorption available in the different rooms is determined by the layout of the space and what materials are being selected. In our acoustic tiles and panels, the core material is stone wool as it has by nature a high sound-absorption.
If you choose the right acoustic products, you can create flexible, private, and engaging environments that combine the benefits of great sound insulation and superior sound absorption
Step 3: Balance your office design with great acoustics
The acoustic comfort should provide a perfect harmony between employee well-being and privacy while the environment continue to be collaborative and dynamic.
Proper sound absorption
A proper sound absorption controls the ambient sound pressure level in a room. And it will create comfortable environments where people can concentrate and work productively without noise-induced irritation or stress. It also has other benefits as it increases the speech intelligibility making presentation and conversation easier to understand.
Low reverberation time
Creating an acoustic environment also reduce reverberation time and echoes. With sound-absorption materials, it will balance the sound level and create a dynamic environment with a focus on employee well-being and privacy.
Proper sound insulation
To prevent that sound from one activity is transmitted and disturbing the next room, you should consider proper sound insulation. Soundproofing relates to the overall ability of a building element to reduce the level of distractions and the harmful effects of noise between a room and a neighbouring space.
Create flexible, private, and engaging environments with our acoustic product range with great sound insulation and superior sound absorption.
