Offices with poor acoustics exacerbate noise, rather than mitigating it. Prolonged exposure to high noise levels can trigger stress responses in our bodies. A study published in ‘Noise Health‘ showed that individuals exposed to noise as loud as traffic noise experienced a sharp increase in cortisol levels – the stress hormone in our bodies.
The introduction and strategic location of sound absorbing surfaces together with appropriate office acoustic panels will contribute towards providing an environment that creates maximum comfort for staff and can ensure good productivity. No matter what type of office space you are in; open plan, private office, meeting room or AV/VC suite, the pre-requisites for acoustic comfort, speech intelligibility and speech privacy are the same.
Depending on your specific design requests, our office acoustics solutions can be discrete and subtle, or add fantastic architectural elements and style to the workplace. We’ve transformed over 5000 spaces using office acoustic panels across London and through Europe.
