Proper office design will factor in the sound levels within the office space and determine where office noise reduction materials are needed. Office noise reduction requires the use of absorptive materials to reduce sound levels within the office space.
Fabric wrapped and sound absorbing wall panels are commonly used in office design. Soundproofing products such as Sound Barrier and door seal kits can also be used in office deign to increase privacy and security in executive offices, treatment rooms and conference rooms. Office spaces with good acoustical conditions result in higher employee productivity and a happier, more efficient office environment.
For reverberation, we have acoustical foams & bass traps. To scatter sound waves & eliminate hot spots we have acoustical diffusion panels and systems. To eliminate exterior noise, we have Vinyl Sound Barrier, Wall Panels The acoustical solution will be a balance of sound isolation products, sound blocking and sound absorption, all resulting in a harmonious sound control solution.
Noise From The Pipe Work In The Room
Noise appears to come from locations such as ducting, pipe work, conduit or similar building services structures and these items are ‘live’ or vibrate when touched, then it is most likely a ‘structure-borne’ noise issue.
The solution can be dealt with at source, or the problem acoustically enclosed within the room area in question.
Difficult To Understand Conversations In The Room
Where there are different conversations going on, or in a classroom where students have difficulty understanding the teacher, concentration can decline and people become more stressed. In these situations ‘absorptive’ products should provide the solution. Ceiling Absorbers or Wall Absorbers to solve this kind if acoustic problem.
Overhear Conversations At The Other End Of Large Room Areas
When several activities are taking place in one large room (such as a community hall or school hall), or in a large restaurant where several groups are trying to hold a conversation, poor acoustics can make communication difficult. The use of Sound Absorbing products should provide a solution to improving privacy of conversations such as Ceiling Absorbing Materials
Soundproofing Case Study:
One of the Esquire Magazines executive offices required soundproofing for confidentiality. The office was the meeting place for strategic confidential sessions. Esquire needed minimal sound transmission material as the main issue was the sound escaping the rooms through the ceiling tiles and walls.
The ANC-CBF22 ceiling tile barrier installs immediately above the existing ceiling tile reducing the sound transmission through the space above the ceiling tiles and through the materials. Sound travels along materials and its reverberation carries that sound through the ceiling grids and suspension ties. The ceiling tile barrier reduces this effect due to its mass and density.
For the walls, the ANC-3500 wall panels with vinyl barrier were used which served as a double function to stop sound through the walls and absorb the echo and noise inside the room. Less echo and sound inside the room means weaker sound transmission through materials used in the construct of the office.
The two products installed in unison created better speech intelligibility inside the room creating very balanced acoustics and the ultimate in privacy. Attendees using the room “heard” the privacy and the acoustic balance resulting in more comfortable future meetings.
