How Can I Make My Office More Soundproof?
Office Acoustic Solutions
The office should be a place where people go to get work done in a quiet, work focused environment. Many businesses decide to make the move from bedroom to office space to get away from the distractions of home.
However, an office is a shared space, either for larger businesses with more employees or smaller businesses that work in a shared office space. These spaces can soon become a hive of distraction through excess noise, be that people chatting to each other, talking on the phone or even the clatter of keyboards.
Creating an acoustic space in the office which helps reduce unwanted noise will improve concentration levels and even the mental health of those affected. The good news is there are many options available when it comes to soundproofing an office environment.
Soundproof Walls and Ceilings
Noise blocker panels, acoustic sound absorption panels and absorber ceiling tiles are a few of the products available to help soundproof the walls and ceiling in an office. Sound absorbing panels aren’t designed to reduce the noise levels, but will absorb the noise to help prevent the reverb and echo in a space. This can have a dramatic effect on the sounds in an enclosed area.
The idea is to look at all the solid surfaces of a room – typically walls and ceilings that have flat surfaces will be reflecting noise. Sound absorbers will prevent the noise from bouncing off these surfaces and therefore reduce the overall noise and reverb, creating a calmer, quieter environment.
Having a quiet private room or office can be important for meetings and business calls. There are many routes for noise to travel through standard doors, but the JCW silent door premier can offer sound reduction up to 44dB, drastically reducing the sound levels escaping or penetrating through the door.
Pods and Booths
Free standing booths and pods are a really cost effective way to introduce a soundproof area without the expense of building walls and partitioning off sections of the office permanently. depending on your requirements, JCW provide various options to match.
Desk Mounted Screens
The desk mounted screens are noise blockers and will prevent sound travelling through. These are ideal solutions for computer blocks where the sounds of other workers in the next booth either across or next to you are distracting. The screens will prevent much of the noise from travelling into your area and help you concentrate on the task at hand.
